Touring the UK for the first time since 2010, Thirty Seconds To Mars were sure to bring Galsgow an unforgettable night with The “Love, Lust, Faith And Dreams” Tour at the SSE Hyrdo.

The gig kicked off  with Surrey 5 piece, You Me At Six taking to the stage to give an energetic performance which was sure to get the lively Glaswegian crowd ready for a night of madness.  Opening with tracks “Reckless”, “Loverboy” and “Little Death” from the bands third studio album released in 2011, the crowd instantly showed their appreciation by singing along to every word.  Latest single, “Lived A Lie” was also played with the band saying new album “Cavalier Youth” will be released in January 2014 and announcing their own UK headline tour which will be in April next year.  Once You Me At Six told the crowd they had been filming the Glasgow show, the 10 song long set was closed with hit single “Bite My Tongue” and then the classic track “Underdog” which had everyone in the venue on their feet singing along.

After a short wait, the main act took to the stage where frontman Jared Leto’s amazing showmanship shone through.  Beginning their set with “Birth” and “Night Of The Hunter”, Leto skillfully worked the crowd.  Fans were giving many chances to join the frontman on stage (who was adapting to his Scottish surroundings by wearing a kilt) to get a ‘selfie’ picture and one female fan even got serenaded by Leto singing her “Happy Birthday”.  Giant balloons and confetti accompanied part of the set.

Halfway through the show, Leto took to the stage himself to do an acoustic session where he covered Rihanna’s “Stay” and played some of the bands biggest hits “The Kill (Bury Me)” and “Closer To The Edge” as well as “Kings And Queens” which showed the rock side of the band and had an overwhelming response from the crowd with everyone belting their hearts out. The encore of “Up In the Air” was possibly the most well received song of the night with many fans relocating onto the stage to join the band for the final song of the night.

Once the electrifying set had finished, thousands of fans swarmed outside of the venue ecstatic about just witnessing their idols perform in front of them, although some were a little disappointed at the bands decision not to play one of their biggest hits “This Is War”.  With Thirty Seconds To Mars continuing the current tour around Europe fans, will have to wait and see what the future holds and if there will be another album to come.
