The LA-based progressive rock/metal band, 30 Seconds To Mars, have a tour due to start on Friday 19th Feb 2010 in Nottingham (and further dates in Manchester on the 20th, Cardiff on the 21st and finally Wembley Arena on the 23rd). If you want to see them live you'd better set that alarm clock for Wednesday at 9:30AM as the tickets go on pre-sale at this time. Prices are £20 (£22.50 for Wembley) - check the "Tickets" links below for availability.
The band formed in 1998 by actor, Jared Leto (Fight Club, Panic Room and Chapter 27), although he likes to keep his fame away from the band project, preferring people to judge the band on merit rather than his name. Their biggest song so far has been "The Kill" which reached number 3 in the States (number 38 here) although the subsequent album, "A Beautiful Lie" didn't do too badly either. Their new album, "This Is War", has been on the schedules for some time now and it looks like a December release date is reasonably likely, with 'Kings And Queens' already chosen as a single.
See you on Saturday morning!
