Jared Leto Makes History With Empire State Building Climb
To celebrate the announcement of Thirty Seconds To Mars‘ 2024 world tour, frontman Jared Leto made history by becoming the first person ever to climb the Empire State Building.
The daring feat was motivated by Leto’s fascination with the iconic New York landmark since childhood. Reflecting on the climb, Leto shared:
“The building is a testament to all the things that can be done in the world if we put our minds to it,” linking it to the inspiration behind their latest album, It’s The End Of The World But It’s A Beautiful Day.
This jaw-dropping stunt adds another chapter to Leto’s reputation for pushing boundaries in the name of artistic expression.
