We just received an email from 30 Seconds To Mars drummer Shannon Leto, so we wanted to make sure to get it in your hot little hands as quickly as possible. Don?t forget, we?re constantly grabbing updates from Shannon and the rest of the guys all month long and putting them up over on our VH1 Posted site. Enjoy!
Hello all, just landed in NYC from London, slept the whole way! We were over there to do Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, and it was amazing, one of those times where you’re challenged with all sorts of things the whole day and then it all works out at the end. It’s kind of how it is when you try to do the best you can possibly do. Anyway, I’m here in NYC for a couple of days, where we will focus on the production aspect of our sold-out arena tour in the UK and Europe. Of course, we have nothing in place yet, and the tour starts in six weeks!!! Yeee haaaaw!!!

We just received this missive from 30 Seconds To Mars lead guitarist Tomo Milicevic, so we’d thought we’d pass it along to you. Don’t forget, we’re constantly grabbing updates from Tomo and the rest of the guys all month long and putting them up over on our VH1 Posted site. Enjoy!

I often wonder what it must have been like on these streets at the beginning of this amazing city. NYC has to be one of the world’s most amazing places, if not THE most amazing. It truly does inspire and will definitely enhance the dreams of anyone who spends time here. I mean, can you think of another place on earth where you can look to the left and see two business type dudes walking and talking about numbers and stocks, while coming in the other direction is a chick in a rubber cat suit on a leash, being pulled around by a guy wearing a gimp mask? And then walk right past each other as if that IS normal. Maybe it is … Who are we to say what’s normal anyway, right? I just absolutely love everything about this place and how it makes you feel inside. It makes you want to do something special, something meaningful.
We believe it was Billy Shakespeare who once said “Parting from Travie McCoy is such sweet sorrow.” Yes, that’s right, check your calendar, it’s October 1! As we wave buh bye to our September Posted Artist of the Month, Travie McCoy, we could not be any more psyched to say hello to 30 Seconds To Mars, who’ll be spending the rest of the month with us! Or, more accurately, with YOU.
Jared Leto and the guys are coming off one of their biggest months ever, a month that saw them play in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans and capture a Video Music Award for Best Rock Video for “Kings And Queens.” And as they continue to tour in support of their 2009 LP This Is War during the month of October, they’ll be giving us an inside look at their lives exclusively at posted.vh1.com.
As we have done in past months, we encourage you to leave any questions you have for the band in the comments section below and we’ll be sure that they see them. So go ahead, fire away and enjoy spending October with 30 Seconds To Mars.
