He may be a newly minted Oscar winner… But Jared Leto is also a successful musician. And, he’s planning to take his show on the road.
The 42-year-old part-Spanish American actor/singer, his brother Shannon and their 30 Seconds to Mars have revealed the details surrounding their upcoming Carnivores Tour.
The band will co-headline several summer dates with Linkin Park and special guest act AFI, it was announced at a press conference in Hollywood on Tuesday, just days after Leto took home the Academy Award for best supporting actor.
The 25-date tour kicks off on August 8 in West Palm Beach, Florida, with stops in Tampa, Montreal, Chicago, Houston and Denver, among other North American cities. Carnivores stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on September 15 and wraps up on September 19 in Concord, California.
Live Nation announced that tickets will go on sale Friday. A minute-long trailer for the tour features a British narrator and assorted live scenes, paired with some of the bands’ more anthemic hits, including Linkin Park’s “Numb” and 30 Seconds to Mars’ “The Kill (Bury Me).”
Before the summer road trip with Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars will be heading out on a global tour that includes a concert in the Ukraine on March 12, after Leto referred to the conflicts there in his Oscar acceptance speech.
“To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight, in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say, we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we’re thinking of you tonight,” he said after collecting his statuette.
The tribute was missing from the delayed broadcast that aired on Russian television, but state-run television network Channel One said that it wasn’t responsible for cutting Leto’s speech.
