It was a little over two years ago that The Girl and I attended a Thirty Seconds To Mars show at the Hollywood Bowl.
She follows Jared on Twitter, and a couple of days before we arrived in LA, he was offering free tickets for their Saturday show. Apparently they were webcasting it and wanted it to be a “sell out show”.
Seeing a show at the Hollywood Bowl was a bucket list item for me, so away we went. Let me tell you, if you ever get a chance to see a concert there, do it. It doesn’t matter who the band is…just go. Absolutely the best venue I’ve ever been in.
Also, if you ever get a chance to see TSTM, you should do that too. Tremendously entertaining live band. Jared Leto is a fantastic frontman and singer, and his brother Shannon is a beast of a drummer. The guy aims for the floor with every single hit.
This band makes the best music videos I’ve seen since Michael Jackson was on top of his game.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
