30 Seconds to Mars Create a Night to Remember in New York City
With only a few shows left on their massive tour, 30 Seconds to Mars had an unforgettable concert at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom last night (Dec. 6), also known as “white night’ (Dec. 6) where most fans donned white from head to toe.
Jared Leto is not only an accomplished actor but a well rounded frontman; his high energy and interaction with the crowd explains why 30 Seconds to Mars has such a cult following. Fans sang at the top of their lungs as the band performed favorites such as ‘This Is War,’ ‘Hurricane,’ ‘From Yesterday’ and an acoustic performance of ‘The Kill,’ among many other tunes.
The show was a massive celebration for fans complete with laser lights, confetti streamers and a massive amount of giant balls, beach balls that is, which quickly took over the venue.
Skylar Grey opened up the show and performed tracks off her solo debut album ‘Invisible.’ She also sang ‘Can’t Haunt Me,’ a tune about zombies that recorded with shock rocker Marilyn Manson.
Tonight’s show (also at Hammerstein Ballroom) will make history as the band will set the record for the most shows performed during a single album cycle. It will also be their final major show in support of ‘This Is War.’
The band’s last pair of shows are two benefit concerts for relief in Haiti, on Dec. 8 and 9, which will also take place in New York City at Saint Peters Church; for more information, go here.
