Amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City’s busy streets and soaring skyscrapers, something extraordinary happened in the skies above this famous skyline. On the morning of November 9, famous award winner Jared Leto started an amazing journey that will be noted in the history of not only rock but also street exploring.
The Empire State Building, a symbol of architectural prowess and an emblem of the city’s enduring spirit became the stage for Leto’s audacious endeavor. Clad in an eye-catching orange suit reminiscent of a superhero’s attire, Leto scaled the towering heights of this legendary landmark. For the unsuspecting passersby, it was a moment that seemed straight out of a comic book—a fusion of adrenaline, adventure, and promotion.
What is the motivation behind this gravity-defying feat? Leto aimed to propel his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, into the limelight by using this stunt as a promotional launchpad for their upcoming ‘Seasons 2024 World Tour.’ With the agility and grace of a seasoned performer, Leto navigated the ascent, garnering attention not only for his band but also for the sheer audacity of the climb itself.
For Leto, this endeavor was more than a mere publicity stunt. It was a homage to his youthful fascination with the Empire State Building, a structure that embodies the limitless potential of human achievement. Speaking about his inspiration, Leto revealed, “The building is a testament of all the things that can be done in the world if we put our minds to it, which is largely the inspiration behind our most recent album, ‘It’s The End Of The World, But It’s A Beautiful Day.'”
The band’s latest album, released through Concord Records on September 15, marks a poignant reflection on the world’s state juxtaposed with the beauty that persists amidst the chaos. With Leto and his brother Shannon at its helm, 30 Seconds to Mars embarks on a global musical odyssey.
The ‘Seasons 2024 World Tour’ is an ambitious journey spanning continents and cultures. Commencing in Latin America with electrifying performances in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico, the tour promises to captivate audiences worldwide. Europe eagerly awaits as the band gears up for 28 exhilarating shows across the continent. Then, traversing across North America, Leto’s bandmates will be joined by AFI, Poppy, and KennyHoopla for 24 sensational shows.
The grand finale of this musical extravaganza will take place in the scenic landscapes of Australia and New Zealand, where the band will deliver four unforgettable arena performances.
Jared Leto’s gripping climb up the Empire State Building stands as a testament not only to his adventurous spirit but also as a bold proclamation heralding the arrival of a musical journey that transcends borders and genres. As the world eagerly anticipates the ‘Seasons 2024 World Tour,’ Leto’s daring ascent serves as an indelible prelude to the harmonious symphony that awaits music enthusiasts across the globe.
