EMI sent over word that Thirty Seconds To Mars are about to set a new Guinness World Record. Here are the details:
Thirty Seconds To Mars will celebrate their 300th and final show in support of their third studio album This Is War with a special Tribus Centum Numerarae concert at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom on Dec. 7th, 2011.
They will also set a new Guinness World Record for the most shows played during a single album cycle. This Is War was released in December, 2009 and the band has since circled the globe numerous times, playing over 300 shows in almost 60 cities in 6 continents.
"We have been on the road for an incredible and insane two years and thought what better way to celebrate the end of this phenomenal journey than with a week of special shows in New York City. We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guiness Book of World Records would be fun especially as we aren't any good at growing our fingernails very long or cultivating the world's largest squash," said frontman Jared Leto.
