Every week, 30 Seconds To Mars will be blogging their touring adventures for MTV Transmission. Here’s what the boys are up to this week!
Last weekend, Thirty Seconds To Mars rocked Download Festival’s 30th Anniversary in the United Kingdom down at Donington Park, then heading to Germany for two nights of shows in Dortmund and Leipzig. After arriving in Finland for Provinssirock Festival, the Band hardly slows down as they then prepare to head to Sweden for Sunday’s Gothenburg Pier Festival.
Just Announced: Mars will be returning to the international front for a series of shows this fall late November/early December. To see what dates have been added for the UK and Germany, visit the official Tour Page today!

After a sleepless night we left Paris (and a sweaty hotel room courtesy of a broken ac) and headed to neutral Switzerland to the beautiful Caribana Festival. It’s situated right on a lake between France and Switzerland and boats were moored right by the stage.
We actually did some interviews on one of the sail boats that afternoon and Shannon even took a ride to the middle of the lake. Still not sure where he commandeered that vessel…The sun went down right before we played and it started pouring rain which made it even an even more chaotic show. We all went nuts together singing nonstop and drenched or not it was perfect.
We headed to the UK after Switzerland to play Download Festival. This was one of the first big festivals we ever played (in 2007) so we have really fond memories of it. We were playing on the Ronnie James Dio stage (I wore my Sabbath shirt in tribute) and were greeted by none other than the legendary Tommy Iommi when we were walking up to stage. It was an honor to meet him and see him side of stage right before we went on. We played at the same time as Rage Against the Machine (we must be out of our heads) but somehow people stayed and it was incredible. I couldn’t even begin to image how many people were watching but thanks to all who did. You blew our minds.
Sang happy B to our friend Nichola (of Kerrang fame) and our good friend Chino from Deftones came out and sang The Kill and surprised the already raukus crowd. He nailed it again and I got a chance to publicly thank him and his band for making such inspiring music all these years. Thanks again Chino.
After the UK, we went to back to Germany, which is feeling more and more like another home. We love the people and the shows are always crazy energy and insane – We played Dortmund on the Tuesday night – Leipzig on Wednesday. Both magical.
PS. We announced a brand new show in Germany at oberhaussen in december. Can’t wait.
I had actually been to Leipzig once before but I didn’t realize just how beautiful it is. I took a walk around when I first woke up and got to enjoy a quiet moment in the park with some sunshine, a busy little family of raher large otters, some granola and soy milk, and a few fans who were about and about getting ready for the festivities.
Hopped off a plane this morning and am now in Finland for Provinssirock. Stays light outside till 1am. Midsummer madness they call it… I got a chance to get some great finnish food at a place called JUURI and now I’m back to life and ready to work all night.
I’ll sleep when I’m dead.
A barely standing building from world war 2 in Leipzig, Germany…there was a gate surrounding the property so I had to jump it to get this photo. Pretty amazing what we all humans had to go through to get to where we are today. Lives lost and and many a born to help carve today’s society.
I also went into a church in the town center where in 1989 a secret meeting was formed to start the beginning discussions of the destruction of the Berlin wall…it began with a few people and ended up growing to over 100,000 protesters, basically the size of the crowd at the Download festival in England where we performed! Have a great week and enjoy the moments of this short life we have!!!
Waking up at 4am for ferries to cross the english channel use to really annoy me. Although, when you look out over the horizon and see views like this one it becomes quite difficult to be angry at the opportunity to see something like this.
I often imagine what it was like 300-400 years ago when crossing these waters were much less peaceful than this. What has become a routine trek from the UK to France was once quite a perilous journey. Its easy to forget the history here, and I believe it is important to remember that no privilege we enjoy anywhere on this earth came without the ultimate price from so many people. Nothing in this world comes easily and this luxury is no exception…
Jesse sent us this shot from Nebraska, USA—he’s been rocking the hawk for four years now! Do YOU have a MarsHawk? Send your photo, name, and location to email@example.com for a chance to be featured in the next installment of Transmission!
This week’s group shot comes from Echelon Italy, shown below at one of many historical monuments in Turin. Learn more about the Mission by clicking here, or click the image to see other recent submissions from fans around the world.
Echelon Italy also hit up the streets to promote with self-made materials for This Is War and Thirty Seconds To Mars. Great job, Echelon!
