LAS VEGAS – November 8, 2010 – The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort will rock right into 2011 with a special New Year’s Eve performance by rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars. The group will ring in the New Year on Friday, December 31 with a 9 p.m. performance. This will be the band’s triumphant return after a sold out show earlier this year and since bringing home a Video Music Award for Best Rock Video.
With album sales reaching 3.5 million worldwide, Thirty Seconds to Mars continues to bring fans the modern rock they’ve been putting out for nearly a decade. The band was formed by Jared and Shannon Leto in 1998 and the group’s first self-titled album was released in 2002, starting a legion of fans who accepted the band’s forward thinking sound. The multi-platinum follow up, A Beautiful Lie (2005) boasted two Top 5 Modern Rock singles “From Yesterday” and “The Kill,” which set the record for the longest-running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio with airplay for more than 50 weeks following its #3 peak in 2006. The band mates traveled to four different continents over three years to keep up with recording while front-man Jared Leto was filming several movies.
Thirty Seconds to Mars’ newest album This Is War (2009) is a reference to the band’s personal battles, a commentary on global crises and economic turmoil, and homage to their now infamous $30,000,000 lawsuit with Virgin Records. This Is War is a triumphant, sonically epic game-changer that builds on the vision laid out in previous album releases.
In addition to Jared’s searing, no-holds-barred vocals, propulsive and melodious bass, guitar and keyboards, Shannon’s huge and inventive percussion, and guitarist Tomo Milicevic’s searing six-string, This Is War buzzes with dozens of imaginative effects and indomitable layers of vintage synths. These sounds include the cry of a wild hawk screaming to introduce the first single, “Kings and Queens” which charted #1 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks. The single inspired a short film called “The Ride,” directed by Thirty Seconds to Mars video director alum, Bartholomew Cubbins (“The Kill,” “From Yesterday”).
This event is produced by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and show time is 9 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open Sunday from noon – 7 p.m., Monday from noon – 10:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday from noon – 7 p.m. and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon – 10 p.m. The Pearl is sponsored by Citi; for more information on upcoming concerts, please call 702-942-6888.
