30 Seconds to Mars to Celebrate Guinness World Record With New York Concert
30 Seconds to Mars are set to break the Guinness World Record for most shows played in a single album cycle, by cracking the the 300 barrier in support of 2009′s This Is War. To celebrate the accomplishment, the band will be playing a special Tribus Centum Numerarae concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on December 7. The show also marks the last stop on the band’s epic touring cycle.
In addition, the trio will also be playing a week of unique shows beginning on December 5.
“We have been on the road for an incredible and insane two years and thought what better way to celebrate the end of this phenomenal journey than with a week of special shows in New York City,” explains frontman Jared Leto. “We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guiness Book of World Records would be fun, especially as we aren’t any good at growing our fingernails very long or cultivating the world’s largest squash.”
