Thirty Seconds To Mars Return To U.S. For 2011 Tour

Thirty Seconds To Mars today announced their 2011 U.S. tour, presented by HP.  The Live Nation-produced tour will kick off in San Diego at the House of Blues on January 11, with 19 dates confirmed. Tickets go on sale on November 19 at www.Ticketmaster.com and www.LiveNation.com.
Thirty Seconds To Mars will end 2010 playing sold-out arena shows throughout Europe, including London’s legendary O2, and will play a very special New Year’s Eve show at the Pearl Theater in the Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas.

This has been a big year for Thirty Seconds To Mars as the band experienced several career highs in 2010.  The first two singles “Kings & Queens” and the title track from their album This Is War (Virgin Records) reached No. 1 on the alternative album airplay charts.  The third single “Closer To The Edge” is currently on its way up the modern rock chart, sitting at No. 11 this week and will impact Top 40 radio in January.  On November 7, the band won their fourth MTV EMA award in Madrid for Best Rock Band.  They also performed their new single “Hurricane” featuring Kanye West for the first time on television and were joined on stage by Kanye himself for a surprise show-stopping performance.  Earlier this year, Thirty Seconds To Mars won their second MTV VMA when they picked up the 2010 VMA for Best Rock Video.  They also won their fourth Kerrang! Award as winner of the 2010 Best International Band.
This Is War was originally released in December 2009 and has been certified gold in six different countries around the world including Germany, South Africa, Austria, Belgium, Australia and a double gold award in the U.K.  Last week, Thirty Seconds To Mars released a deluxe edition of This Is War, which includes “Hurricane 2.0” featuring Kanye West, live versions of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” and Kanye West’s “Stronger” which the band recorded for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, and the “Kings & Queens” and “Closer To The Edge” videos along with bonus DVD content.  The new edition of the album also has four different covers and an entire new look and design.

The album’s next single will be “Hurricane” feat. Kanye West.  The band recently shot the video in New York City with director Bartholomew Cubbis.   The band released a sneak peak trailer from the video on their website last week and the full video is expected to premiere soon.
