Thirty Seconds To Mars this autumn at Arena Riga

One of the most significant rock bands of the 21st century, "Thirty Seconds to Mars," will delight countless fans of their music with a concert on October 3rd at Arena Riga as part of their world concert tour. Tickets will be available for sale from April 26th at 10:00 am on the "Biļešu Serviss" network. FBI and Positivus Festival concert club members, as well as Delfi+ subscribers, will be able to purchase tickets in advance starting from April 24th at 10:00 am, using a code that will be sent to registered users.

The American rock band "Thirty Seconds To Mars" is one of the most explosive and successful concert ensembles of modern times, whose musical performances captivate everyone in the whirlwind of events, just as the name suggests, swiftly transporting them to a distant planet, the attainment of which, lazily munching on Mars chocolate bars, people have long dreamed of. "Thirty Seconds To Mars" was formed in 1998 in Los Angeles by two brothers - Jared Leto (Jared Leto, lead vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards) and Shannon Leto (Shannon Leto, drums, percussion), who had been making music together since childhood, so mutual understanding was already ingrained in them.

Inspired by his mother's hippie lifestyle, Shannon Leto began rhythmically banging on pots and pans, naturally developing his talent for playing percussive instruments, while Jared's first musical instrument was a set of broken pianos. For their first album, the two brothers, who had already been exposed to various forms of art early on, enlisted two heavyweights of the recording industry as producers - Canadian Bob Ezrin, whose list of collaboration partners includes a number of "immortal" rock classics - Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Peter Gabriel, and American Brian Virtue, who has worked with significant later-period rock bands such as "Jane's Addiction," "Audioslave," and "Deftones." The debut album released in 2002, "30 Seconds To Mars," which had struggled with release opportunities from several record companies, earned high praise from critics. Subsequently, the band began using the abbreviated version of their name with numbers at the beginning, which also worked as a marketing trick, appearing twice in alphabetical lists, just as the lead singer's name appeared equally prominently in two different art forms - film and music. Over the following years, having performed countless sold-out concerts worldwide and headlining in front of tens of thousands of fans at many festivals, five more successful recordings were released, with the latest - "It's the End of the World but It's a Beautiful Day" - coming out in the fall of 2023.

Initially, the group did not want to advertise that their leader was already a well-known Hollywood actor, in order to let the music speak first, rather than news of the participant's previous achievements, but of course, this fact was not kept secret for long. Jared Leto, who studied art and directing in his youth, also created several music videos for his band, but did not "sign" them with his name either. There are plenty of singing actors and appearances of famous musicians in movies are quite common, but Jared Leto has been equally successful in both actor and musician careers. For his very diverse film roles, Jared has been nominated for significant awards over a hundred times and has won them 43 times. However, the role of the lead singer of a rock band could be considered the most important role in his life, from which he does not easily break free, as from the others, which are devoted to a limited period of life while filming takes place. Because of his film roles, Jared has been ready for almost anything, including physical transformations from extreme emaciation for a drug addict role and immersing himself in the persona of Mark David Chapman, John Lennon's murderer, to substantial weight gain, throwing himself into almost everything he does, with body and soul in a literal sense.

The group has always emphasized that "Thirty Seconds To Mars" is not just the famous singer, actor, and songwriter Jared Leto with his accompanying band, because the vocalist in the band is no less important, his elder brother - drummer Shannon Leto. Both are the only members who have remained unchanged in the group for the third decade, as the rest change periodically. Any cohesive and harmonious musical ensemble operates as a single organism or a well-oiled mechanism, but most people usually notice who is in the foreground, undeservedly forgetting or unknowingly that all of this is driven by some invisible force from outside. Shannon, the drummer, and Jared, the facade, most certainly serve as the engine or heart that pumps the energy of "Thirty Seconds To Mars." Shannon's musical interests from the very beginning were not limited to just mastering drumming techniques but encompassed the overall sound of music and the emotions it evoked - he was inspired by progressive rock and blues classics, as well as jazz music and early heavy metal bands, which resulted in "Thirty Seconds To Mars" being recognized as one of the most significant bands of the first decade of the 21st century by the heavy music magazine "Kerrang!," which is an important entry in their biography, in addition to awards received from comprehensive globally significant music media outlets - "MTV" and the British magazine NME (New Musical Express). By 2014 - a time when music recognition was judged not by the frequency of streaming but by the number of physical albums sold, "Thirty Seconds To Mars" had sold over 15 million copies of their albums worldwide."
