Grammy Award-winning English rock band MUSE will tour 15 cities in North America this summer, joined by multi-platinum-selling Thirty Seconds to Mars. The duo of bands stops at Starlight Theatre on Monday night, June 12.
Featuring Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme, MUSE released its newest album, Drones, in June 2015. Drones debuted at No. 1 in 21 countries, including the United States, spawned the No. 1 hit single “Dead Inside,” and earned MUSE its second Best Rock Album Grammy last February. Since forming in 1994, MUSE’s seven studio albums have sold 18 million copies worldwide. The band’s honors also include an American Music Award and the O2 Silver Clef, presented by Queen’s Roger Taylor and Brian May.
Special guest Thirty Seconds to Mars features lead vocalist/songwriter Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic. Currently working on their highly anticipated fifth studio album to be released later this year, the American rock band has sold more than 5 million albums and received numerous awards since forming in Los Angeles in 1998. Among the group’s honors are a dozen MTV Awards, a Billboard Music Award and the Guinness World Record for the Longest-Running Concert Tour in history. The world record was achieved for the two-year, 309-show tour (December 2009-December 2011) in support of their third studio album, This Is War.
Supporting band PVRIS is a Boston-based trio of vocalist Lynn Gunn, guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald. Over the past year, PVRIS has performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Last Call with Carson Daily,” and hit the road with Fall Out Boy and Awolnation for an arena tour.
