30 Seconds to Mars wows Pinoy fans

By KARL R. De MESA

The monsoon couldn’t stop local rock fans from going to Mars.

Huddled beneath umbrellas or wrapped in raincoats and ponchos, hundreds flocked to the Trinoma Mall open parking lot last Friday, July 29, to see the band that’s fused space rock and alternative into something cool again.

30 Seconds to Mars is famous for having a movie star front man in Jared Leto, an actor who has starred in Hollywood films like Fight Club, Lord of War, and Requiem for a Dream. In several interviews, however, he has confessed that he considers the band he formed with his brother Shannon Leto (drums) his full-time job. Their current three-piece line-up is rounded out by talented axeman Tomo Milicevic (guitars).

Formed in 1998, 30STM signed early on to Virgin Records and has since crossed over to become a popular music juggernaut. To date the band has sold 3.5 million album units worldwide and won many awards, including three from MTV Video Music Awards.

Their foray into Asia is part of their Into the Wild Tour. While the local organizers certainly didn’t plan well enough to account for the rainy season, or the looming threat of a lightning strike, the concert was a study in spectacle and rock pageantry.

okay, the kids reeeeally liked jared, eheste 30STM
