Thirty Seconds to Mars’ ‘Unplugged’ Set Premieres Tomorrow
The stripped-down performance debuts at 8PM EST. Thirty Seconds to Mars' 'Unplugged' set is brief, featuring five songs: 'Hurricane,' 'Kings and Queens,' 'Closer to the Edge,' 'Night of the Hunter,' and a cover of U2’s 'Where the Streets Have No Name.' The band's performance of the U2 hit takes the song in a new direction with the inclusion of a gospel choir.
Frontman Jared Leto expressed his excitement about the concert in a press release: "It’s a rite of passage being invited to do MTV 'Unplugged.' Many of our favorite bands did 'Unplugged' and still do it, so we were thrilled to be asked."
The day after 'Unplugged' airs, the band's new 'Hurricane' video, directed by Leto, will go into rotation on the MTV series of networks. The song is the latest release from the group's most recent album, 'This Is War.'
