You know the bright lights, smoke, screaming girls, crowd surfing and drunk people who bless every concert? It was all there on January 26, 2011 when I attended the 30 Seconds to Mars concert at the Verizon Wireless Theater in downtown Houston. Despite the above mentioned it was a great show! I had seen 30stm before in Decemeber of ’09 and at that time I loved it! There was not as many people there and the performance was more intimate. My sister Brittany and I went to show in ’09 but we wanted to take Tonya but she had just had her baby. I can tell you though, that if Tonya had it her way that little baby would have been strapped into a sling and his first concert would have been that night.
By the way I did not mention that my sister has been in love with Jared Leto since she was 8 years old? It makes me laugh when I think back to the old days when we shared a room. Frequently I would buy those teeny bopper magazines and tear out all my favorite “crushes” and staple them to my wall. Jared Leto would be the only one I would leave attached to the book. He just was not my type. My sister noticed this atrocity and nearly had a heart attack.
“What are you doing?” She yelled at me one time as she picked up the magazine from the floor. Puzzled I looked at her and asked what she meant. “This guy is so cute.” She tore the picture out and placed it on the wall above her bed. I would have to look at it every time I walked into the room.
So I was very, very happy when I could take her to this concert. Being a fan of the band, I think that this is a rare instance when an Actor turned Musician really knows what he is doing. Give credit where credit is due. This also happened to be my sister in law’s first concert ever. needless to say all who went had a blast! It was a great show and not one I will forget.
