30 Seconds to Mars Shoots Thru Chicago for Taste
of Chaos Tour
By Randy J. Klodz
Alternative-rock band 30 Seconds to Mars returns to Chicago as part of the
annual Taste of Chaos Tour. This time around, the band will perform at Chicago’s
Aragon Ballroom on March 16.
Led by singer/guitarist—and famous actor—Jared Leto, along with
Tomo Milicevic (guitar) and Shannon Leto (drums), rock band 30 Seconds to
Mars has been hitting the road with a vengeance in support of the band’s second
major-label effort “A Beautiful Lie” which hit stores in 2005.
As a band built on constant touring, not the fame of its lead singer, 30
Seconds to Mars has hit high on the radio charts with “A Beautiful Lie” songs
like “Attack,” “From Yesterday” and “The Kill.”
Aside from a headlining performance by 30 Seconds to Mars, as part of this
year’s installment of the Taste of Chaos Tour, fans can expect to be treated
to a full-out concert event featuring bands The Used, Aiden, Chiodos, Evaline,
Saosin and Senses Fail. Also, those attending the Taste of Chaos Tour should
expect to have the chance to try out various interactive kiosks. In previous
years, including last year, video game consoles or often on display for fans
to play the latest titles.
Aragon Ballroom is at 1106 W. Lawrence Ave. Tickets for this all-ages show
are listed for $30 each with showtime slated for 5 p.m. For more information
