30 Seconds to Mars Concert
Alexa's goosebump moment
Concert by the band Thirty Seconds to Mars – Alexa’s goosebump moment
“Hello! I come from Monaco and my goosebump moment was a concert I went to in 2014 in Lyon. It was a Thirty Seconds to Mars concert, and it was the first big concert I had ever attended. It was like the highlight of my life. Since I was a little kid, I always loved their music. So, that would be my goosebump moment, and it was really beautiful: the crowd was amazing, and the band was incredible. I absolutely loved it”.
The concert that marked a generation
Screams, jumps and tears of emotion and euphoria aroused the concert of 30 Seconds to Mars in Lyon, France in 2014. The band set a precedent for an entire generation that grew up, dreamed and lived with Jared Leto and the songs that became the anthem of many young people.
From the well-known and commercial “The Kill” and “From Yesterday”, to the newest 30 Seconds to Mars production, “Race”, “Closer to the edge”, “Kings and Queens”, “Do or die”, among others, awakened the emotion contained for years in the audience.
In a show full of lights, sounds, colors and dreams fulfilled, 30 Seconds to Mars transported the audience in Lyon to a world where it is worth living and fighting for what one longs for, and where you only need to believe to be “30 seconds from Mars”.
Thirty Seconds to Mars, an iconic band
30 Seconds to Mars is an American alternative rock band formed in 1998 in Los Angeles (California). It originally consisted of three members: Jared Leto, Matt Wachter and Shannon Leto, who were later joined by guitarist Solon Bixler.
Formed in 1998 by brothers Jared and Shannon Leto, the band 30 Seconds to Mars, influenced by bands such as Pink Floyd, Kiss and Alice Cooper, released its first album in 2002, titled “30 Seconds to Mars”. The album, produced by the two brothers alone, sold more than 750,000 copies worldwide, although its two singles, “Capricorn” and “Edge Of The Earth” achieved only regular U.S. radio play.
The band’s name was taken from a thesis that argued that we are literally 30 seconds away from Mars and is inspired by the contemporary world, suggesting that we would be seconds away from this mundane air. Mars has always been an iconographic image, as it is a planet close to the Roman God of War.
To date, the group has sold around 11 million copies worldwide. The band has received numerous accolades and awards, with a total of 50 awards out of approximately 70 nominations.
Among their most notable awards are four MTV Europe Music Awards. In addition, last December they managed to enter the Guinness Book of Records, obtaining the record for the largest number of concerts in a single tour, more than 300 during their last tour. Approximately 311 without counting the acoustic shows, counting the latter, the number of concerts would rise to 366.
