Jared Leto and 30 Seconds Mars

Fresh off his Oscar win, Jared Leto and his band 30 Seconds to Mars revealed new details Tuesday about their upcoming Carnivores Tour with Linkin Park and AFI.

At a live multimedia press conference at MILK studios in Los Angeles, Leto and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington announced that their groups will co-headline a 25-date summer tour with special guest AFI. The North American tour kicks off Aug. 8 in West Palm Beach, Fla., and includes shows in cities including Tampa, Montreal, Chicago, Houston and Denver. The tour will wrap Sept. 19 in Concord, Calif.

The conference was broadcast via the interactive social platform VyRT.

While he took a few days off to attend awards season events, Leto and the rest of 30 Seconds to Mars (Leto’s brother Shannon and Tomo Milicevic) have been touring the world to promote their latest album “Love Lust Faith + Dreams.”

After making a stop in Finland on March 8, the group will travel to Ukraine for a show on March 12. During his Oscar acceptance speech, Leto referred to the conflict in Ukraine, saying, “To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight, in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say, we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we’re thinking of you tonight.”
