I see you Jared Leto. Your freshly engraved Oscar for an amazing performance in Dallas Buyers Club, your perfect rock and roll outfits, your amazing ombre coif I could never pull off… You know you can take a break right? Take a couple weeks and bask in the glory that is being an Oscar-winning actor and worldwide rock and roll star. Oh? You’re going to announce a nationwide summer stadium tour with your band Thirty Seconds to Mars and co-headliner Linkin Park? You’ve truly outdone yourself.

The dramatically titled “Carnivores Tour” kicks off August 8th with support from fellow rockers AFI and will have two stops in the Los Angeles area: September 11th at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine and September 13th at the Hollywood Bowl. After experiencing Thirty Seconds to Mars’ theatrical performance last year at the Bowl, I can’t wait to see what they roll out this year.


Mike Shinoda, co-singer of Linkin Park, described the dramatic tour name in a statement. “Carnivores is a metaphor that is meant to convey an appetite for something visceral and substantive, and I feel that’s exactly the hunger this tour will feed.” Leto added, “We are so excited to join our friends on this epic journey. It’s going to be the adventure of a lifetime.”

Tickets go on sale Monday through LiveNation, so check out the dates below and get ready for the alternative rock experience of the summer.
