Thirty Seconds To Mars going for gold

Thirty Seconds To Mars (EMI)
Rockers Thirty Seconds To Mars will celebrate their 300th and final show in support of their critically acclaimed third studio album This Is War with a special Tribus Centum Numerarae concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on 7 December 2011. They will also set a new Guinness World Record for the most shows played during a single album cycle. This Is War was released in December 2009 and the band has since circled the globe numerous times, playing over 300 shows in almost 60 cities in 6 continents, even visiting South Africa again. True road warriors, they’ve sold out arenas around the world including London’s infamous O2, the first International Lollapalooza Festival in Santiago, Chile, played to over 75,000 people at Reading and Leeds Festivals, 100,000 people at Rock Am Park in Germany and more. We have been on the road for an incredible and insane two years and thought what better way to celebrate the end of this phenomenal journey than with a week of special shows in New York City. We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guiness Book of World Records would be fun especially as we aren't any good at growing our fingernails very long or cultivating the world's largest squash,” said frontman Jared Leto.
