Meeting Thirty Seconds To Mars (An Adventure Into Wonderland)

So the day has finally happened! I finally had the chance to see Thirty Seconds To Mars live & meet them! I was really nervous going into the meet and greet and almost missed the whole thing thanks to Cherry St being closed for construction. I was half an hour late, but luckily by the time I finally got there people were still being checked in by our Adventures In Wonderland host Reni.

After being checked in, we waited to meet MARS. Reni went through the rules with us (we were allowed one thing singed, it could be anything as long as it was official MARS merch, all gifts must not be given to them personally because someone recently thought it would be a good idea to give Jared a human ear.. and finally just keep the line going) and handed out our posters that came in our package so we could get it signed if we wanted to. When MARS showed up for the meet and greet, everyone noticed someone was missing. Thats when Jared explained to us that Shannon had caught the bad cold he and Tomo had earlier and could not make it to the m&g because of a high fever. Jared and Tomo spoke to us for a bit, talking about the Hollywood Bowl VyRT and how everyone was catching the cold. After that, everyone lined up and got their poster or cd signed. Jared joked and said he can sign for Shannon if we’d like, and Tomo chimed in to say it was OK for that to happen since they are blood related. I didn’t get to talk to Jared much because in front of me was a 10 year old with a shirt that said “Shanimal in training” and he wanted to get Shannon to sign the school paper he wrote about him being his hero. When this boy’s mom was talking to Jared about it, Jared was kind enough to try and get one of the crew members to organize with the mom to bring the boy backstage to meet Shannon! In my opinion that was really sweet of him and he didn’t have to go above and beyond for them. But since he was busy doing that, he was rushing through the autographs and not really paying attention. I waited for him to stop talking and he kind of gave me a look as to why I was still standing there, but I asked him to write the lyrics ‘Time To Be Alive’ for me on my poster so I could get it tattooed later and he was kind of enough to do it for me. It looked like he was trying hard to make it look neat and flow with the poster (I’ve seen him just scribble it off to the side for some people who’ve asked at meet and greets). Then I met Tomo, he was super friendly and always smiling. I wish I had time to say something to him but Reni had to keep us moving since it was getting close to doors. After everyone got their stuff signed we got in line for our photos. When it was my turn, Tomo smiled and said hi, being a little awe struck it didnt completely register that he said hi to me until after the photo was over, and then I just told them ‘thank you’ quickly and moved out of the way for the next person. I felt really bad after, and I hope I didnt come off as rude. I’m just really shy and sometimes it takes me time to realize whats actually going on because i’m in lala land haha.

We were allowed into the show area early so we could buy our merch and get a good spot. I hurrily bought my merch and was able to grab a barricade spot between where Jared and Shannon was going to be. The whole night was amazing. MARS exceeded my expectations for how the show was going to be. All 3 of them played beautifully live, and they have amazing stage presence. I was also a little surprised that Jared pays so much attention to the crowd, he saw me not jumping up and down during one of the songs and pointed to me and told me to jump lol. I also died a little every time he’d walk over to my side of the crowd and get close to sing. During ‘Closer To The Edge’ he jumped up on the barricade right infront of me to get up and sing further into the crowd. I have no idea how he does it, the whole time he was on the barricade he was bouncing up and down. If that was me, I would have totally lost my balance and have fallen off onto the ground haha. At the end of the night, Jared announced that he and Tomo would stay back after the show to sign the new album for anyone who purchases it at the merch table. Martha and I got in line to get our albums signed. The signing was super quick and they couldnt talk to us since they had to keep everyone moving and the venue was not pleased that they were staying back so long to do the signing.

At the end of the night, I have to admit I was a little disappointed with how quick the meet and greet was for the price we paid, but at the same time I’m so grateful for the opportunity to meet them and would definitely do it again when they come back! Hopefully next time everyone will be feeling better. I’m also really appreciative for the fact that they still went through with the meet & greet and show that night. Jared mentioned that the doctor told them they should cancel the show, but Shannon didn’t want to cancel it. Also, through the meet and greet Tomo and Jared had to keep turning away to cough every so often since they weren’t feeling well either. Looking back on the night, it still amazes me that it happened. It was so refreshing to be at a show and not have to worry about taking photos for press or having to do an official review. It’s a lot more fun to be there as a fan, screaming at the top of your lungs at the front of the crowd. I haven’t had this much fun at a concert in ages. Everything felt so new and the fans in the crowd were actually very friendly.

Still waiting for my email form Wonderland with my photo from the night. I’ll post it later when I get it. If I’m up to it later, I’ll post a proper review on the show over on my other blog Concert Life Toronto.

Damn you, Post-MARS depression! I just want to re-live Thursday night! haha.
