2014: Thirty Seconds To Mars Is Coming To South Africa!

Thirty Seconds to Mars will be performing two concerts in South Africa next year.
The group will rock Cape Town’s Grand Arena on June 13 and Joburg’s Coca-Cola Dome on 16th June.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 13 at 9am from and Computicket.

The band 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. 

Their 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. 

This period also serves as source material for their documentary, Artifact, which documents the band’s struggle to renegotiate their recording contract with record label Virgin/EMI. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival where it won the People’s Choice Documentary award.

Coming off the back of an outstanding European festival circuit and some scintillating performances, this is one band that you do not want to miss.
