Thirty Seconds to Mars have rescheduled their concert for April 10 due to unforeseen circumstances.
The band comprising 43-year-old actor Jared Leto, his older brother Shannon Leto on drums and guitarist Tomo Milicevic, was scheduled to play a gig at the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena next month. However, now the group has moved the event to September 25th after finding a conflict in their work commitments.
Thirty Seconds to Mars and Live Nation say they are dedicated to maintaining customer experience and want to ensure a smooth transition process for fans who have purchased tickets. The American band would like to express “our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused".
All purchased tickets for the original date of the show will be valid for the new concert five months later, but the option of a full refund will be available for anyone who wishes to do so through Ticketmaster. Check out www.marsindubai.com for more details on how to go through with the process, which has to be done before April 10th.
Additionally, 10 per cent of all existing concert-goers now have the opportunity to enter a lottery for a chance to win ticket upgrades, signed merchandise or meet and greet with the band.
Tickets for the September gig will resume selling this Wednesday at the same prices currently advertised. Winners of competitions organised by Thirty Seconds to Mars, Live Nation or any media partner outlets are also valid and will carry forward to September.
The highly-anticipated competition #MARSBattleoftheBands will still be carried forward and “can be expected to just get bigger and better”. More entries will be accepted and the reopening date for submission will be announced shortly. Entries received earlier stay in the competition. The winning act will get to perform in front of the multi-platinum selling album band’s 10,000 fans.
The gig was part of Middle East Film and Comic Con 2015 (MEFCC), the region’s largest popular culture festival showcasing Film, TV, Sci-Fi, Animation, Gaming, Comics and more, taking place April 9-11. UAE band Juliana Down was previously announced as their support act.
