- Story Text: Jared Leto's recent Oscar win for his supporting role in "Dallas Buyer Club" should see him getting plenty of job offers in Hollywood. However the actor and musician announced on Tuesday (March 04) that he and his band, Thirty Seconds To Mars, will instead be hitting the road for a joint tour with Linkin Park and AFI.
"To stand on the stage in front of the Linkin Park army out there. I think it's going to be absolute insanity," Leto told members of the media at a Los Angeles panel discussion featuring various members of the bands.
"This announcement is being broadcast right now on Vyrt.com, which is really a platform where bands can share their concerts with fans all over the world in a social way. So it's a fun way to watch live events online. Hopefully there will be a show that we're going to broadcast for all the people that won't be in America to see this tour - people that are in Russia, Brazil, Germany and the U.K. and in Asia."
Linkin Park member Mike Shinoda also expressed his excitement over the tour.
"I'm so stoked to get on the road with these guys and AFI and I know it's going to be a great summer."
The tour is set to kick off in West Palm Beach, Florida on August 8 and hit various North American venues until it wraps on September 19 in Concord, California.
