Thirty Seconds to Mars to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms Apr. 9

Modern rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars will perform at The Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort on Friday, April 9, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. with special guests Neon Trees. With album sales reaching 3.5 million worldwide, Thirty Seconds to Mars continues to bring fans the modern, progressive rock they’ve been putting out for nearly a decade.

The band was formed by Jared and Shannon Leto in 1998 and the group’s first self-titled album was released in 2002, starting a legion of fans who accepted the band’s forward thinking sound. The multi-platinum follow up, A Beautiful Lie (2005) boasted two Top 5 Modern Rock singles “From Yesterday” and “The Kill,” which set the record for the longest-running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio with airplay for more than 50 weeks following its #3 peak in 2006. The band mates traveled to four different continents over three years to keep up with recording while front-man Jared Leto was filming several movies.

Thirty Seconds to Mars’ newest album This Is War (2009) is a reference to the band’s personal battles, a commentary on global crises and economic turmoil, and homage to their now infamous $30,000,000 lawsuit with Virgin Records. This Is War is a triumphant, sonically epic game-changer that builds on the vision laid out in previous album releases.

In addition to Jared’s searing, no-holds-barred vocals, propulsive and melodious bass, guitar and keyboards, Shannon’s huge and inventive percussion, and guitarist Tomo Milicevic’s searing six-string, This Is War buzzes with dozens of imaginative effects and indomitable layers of vintage synths. These sounds include the cry of a wild hawk screaming to introduce the first single, “Kings and Queens” which charted #1 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks. The single inspired a short film called “The Ride,” directed by Thirty Seconds to Mars video director alum, Bartholomew Cubbins (“The Kill,” “From Yesterday”).

The Pearl Box Office is open from noon – 7:00 p.m. daily. Doors will open at 8:00 p.m. and show time is 9:00 p.m. The Pearl is sponsored by Citi; for more information on upcoming concerts, please call 702-942-6888.
