30 Seconds To Mars to play flashmob gig in London this afternoon (May 30)

Jared Leto and band to play secret show in Soho Square at 4pm

30 Seconds To Mars will perform a special flashmob style gig in London this afternoon.

The band, who release new album ‘Love Lust Faith + Dreams’ this week (May 27) and are fronted by Jared Leto, will perform in Soho Square as a surprise for fans. The show starts at 4pm BST with anyone able to make it along free to attend.

Speaking of the LP, Leto has previously said the music is more of an art project than an album: “This is more than an evolution, it’s a brand new beginning. Creatively, we’ve gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring.” The album artwork features the piece Isonicotinic Acid Ethyl Ester by Damien Hirst. Another Hirst piece from the Colour Charts series will appear on the CD itself.

30 Seconds To Mars will be playing this summer’s Download Festival, alongside Queens Of The Stone Age, Alice In Chains and Motorhead. The band will also perform as part of this year’s iTunes Festival at The Roundhouse in Camden, London alongside Justin Timberlake, Jessie J and Jake Bugg.
