We’ve got some news for you – Big Concerts is proud to announce that Thirty Seconds to Mars will be performing 2 concerts in South Africa on Friday 13th June at the Grand Arena, Cape Town and Monday 16th June at the Coca-Cola Dome, Jozi. Presented by M-Net.

Thirty Seconds to Mars have gone on to scale the heights of rock and roll stardom and are known for their energetic live performances and their fusion of different genres. Although they found modest success with their self-titled debut, it was their second album, ‘A Beautiful Lie,’ which announced them as bonafide rock and roll superstars. Released in 2005, the platinum selling album broadened the band’s sound and garnered them frequent spots on MTV while also spawning two top 10 modern rock hits, ‘They Kill’ and ‘Bury Me.’ ‘They Kill’ set a record for the most weeks on the US Modern Rock Chart and the album’s success opened the doors to numerous successful tours and spots at major rock festivals such as Roskilde, Pinkpop and Download.

The band’s third album, ‘This is War,’ released in 2009 garnered them another three top ten singles, the first two of which peaked at the number 1 spot on the US Alternative Songs chart. Additionally, ‘Closer to the Edge’ was the fastest selling rock single in the UK and topped the UK rock chart for eight consecutive weeks. The subsequent tour set a ‘Guinness World Record for the longest concert tour by a rock band’ and helped to establish Thirty Seconds to Mars’ reputation as one of the hardest working rock bands.

‘Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams,’ the band’s fourth studio album marked an evolution in their distinctive sound and was positively received both critically and commercially. The album reached the top ten in fifteen different countries and the first single, ‘Up In The Air,’ peaked at number 3 on the Billboard ‘Hot Modern Rock Tracks.’ Kerrang called the new album bigger than this planet while Allmusic’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine called it their boldest, brightest, most imaginative record yet.

That’s right fans… prepare yourself for a night out with Jared Leto and the boys!!
