30 Seconds To Mars sold out the Pageant last night, and frontman Jared Leto proved himself a dynamic presence capable of putting on a hell of a show. He's also kind of got a George Michael look going on these days, but that is probably beside the point. Anberlin and CB7 opened. Jason Stoff was there to capture the madness.

Fans lined up around the block near The Pageant to get great spots on the floor. Britney Walters, Jenny Walters, Marie Isenberg and Lisa Bradley were near the front of the line.

Agree with the posts below... really no momentum. Heard the drummer was sick and that would make sense... won't see another 30 STM show but still like the music...

This was the worst live show I've ever seen; my husband and I actually left in the middle after they messed up no less than five times in the first eight songs and completely butchered "The Kill". The "crowd karaoke" piece of this show was a joke - it was an excuse for Jared not to sing and spin around the stage with his guitar. Overall the show was a disappointing waste of money, and I recommend never spending a dime on this band again. A national act of their "caliber" putting on a show like that was just disrespectful to good musicians and fans who pay good money to see them.

Seriously? This show was horrible. Constant stopping and starting killed any chance of getting into a groove, and the audience sing-a-longs on literally every song quickly turned into Leto simply not even singing the choruses at the end, which was okay considering his voice was not in good form. Right to the end, the crowd was loud and you could tell everyone was really trying to enjoy it and just waiting for it to come together, but the band never justified their fans' faith. A shame too, as the crowd was as hyped up as any I've seen in a long time.
