5FM has just broken the news that the absolutely massive 30 Seconds to Mars headed up by the multi-talented Jared Leto will be returning to South Africa this November.
This is one of the bands that I do quite enjoy listening to and I’m 100% sure that I’ll be there rocking out with the rest of you. As we speak we’re trying to find out a little bit more info from the powers that be and investigate whether we can get you some free tickets- stay tuned…
In the mean time here’s what we do have taken straight from the 5fm press release-
In 2002 they released their self titled debut album. This was followed by ‘A Beautiful Lie’ (2005) which produced two Top 5 Modern Rock singles in ‘From Yesterday’ and ‘The Kill’ which set a record for the longest running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio when it remained on the national airplay chart for more than 50 weeks following its No. 3 peak in 2006.
Their latest release ‘This is War’ (2009) has been called their strongest and most accomplished work to date, spending 12 weeks on the 5FM Top 40.
Thirty Seconds to Mars have won numerous awards including an MTV Music Video Award, three MTV EMAs, MTV Latin, Asia and Australia Awards, a Fuse Award and three Kerrang! Awards. The band have played over 500 shows around the world including Lollapalooza in the U.S, Download in the UK, Germany’s Rock Am Ring, Japans Summer Sonic and South Africa’s My Coke Fest in 2008 with 5FM where the response from the fans was nothing less than incredible! And now, the band are excited to be back headlining their own tour…
