Band really taking off.

Byline: GORDON BARR

FAST on their way to becoming one of the world's biggest bands, Thirty Seconds To Mars have announced a gig at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.

They will play the venue on November 27, with tickets on sale from Friday.

The tour will see the band play to a combined audience of more than 50,000 people with support provided by Shikari.

Thirty Seconds To Mars follow their triumphant Download set with the release of the new single Closer To The Edge. Co-produced by Flood (U2, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails), Steve Lillywhite (The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel) and Thirty Seconds To Mars, it is led by Jared Leto's soaring vocals and backed with an undercurrent of electronic flourishes. Taken from the global hit album This is War, Close to The Edge features backing vocals courtesy of the band's dedicated fans The Echelon, who contributed to the album's recording during sessions in nine different countries stretching from America to Australia. Formed by brothers Jared and Shannon Leto and completed by Tomo Milicevic, Thirty Seconds To Mars have won numerous awards and accolades, including an MTV Video Music Award, three MTV EMAs, an MTV Latin and Asia Award, a Fuse Award, and three Kerrang! Awards. GORDON BARR
