30 Seconds to Mars is to preparing to make its mark in the Guinness Book of World Records by breaking the record for the most shows performed during a single album cycle. Since the band released their album This Is War in 2009, they've supported it with nearly 300 shows in six continents. Their record-setting concert, which is show number 300, has been scheduled for December 7 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
“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,” frontman Jared Leto says in a statement. “We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guinness 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.”
30 Seconds to Mars is also planning a special week of unique shows celebrating the milestone beginning on December 5. Tickets for the concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom go on sale starting October 22 at 10 a.m. ET.
