30 Seconds to Mars

Closing night of Dubai Music Week, 30 Seconds to Mars blew the audience away with a spectacular concert. The band was in Dubai to promote Jared Leto’s directorial debut with the award-winning musical documentary, Artifact.
 
The band has sold out several tours and consistently hit billboard top charts with their music. Their most famous hits including; ‘King and Queens’, ‘This Is War’, ‘The Kill’ and ‘Closer to the Edge’. The band is composed of oscar winning Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and their lead guitarist Tomo Miličević.

The show opened with a local band called Juliana Down, the most popular rock band in from the UAE. They opened with a bang of well composed music along with good interaction with audience both unfamiliar and familiar with their music. After their set the anticipation and excitement for the main show built up.

The audience was in no way disappointed except maybe with the short length of the setlist. Leto’s stage presence is incomparable with many musical artists, he entered waving the classic 30 Seconds to Mars sign on a flag causing everybody to scream in delight. As soon as the first song started the crowd went wild with excitement. The highlight was definitely the musician’s interaction with the audience which made the experience all the more surreal. We won’t forget the confetti canons and balloons which were released during the beginning either. Our favourite song was ‘This is War’ which was performed with immense energy.

Since 30 Seconds to Mars has an incredible reputation for live concerts we were definitely expecting the best and we received just that. The band had exceeded our expectations. It was difficult to take our eyes of the stage. The performance was so mesmerising, that the partial deafness and excruciating leg pain from standing was actually worth it.
