Thirty Seconds to Mars To Close Winter Season in Ischgl

Thirty Seconds to Mars are set to play on 2nd May 2015 at the legendary Top of the Mountain Concert in Ischgl, at 2300 metres altitude, right in the centre of the ski area. Entry is free when you have a valid ski pass.
At 2300 metres altitude the band from Los Angeles will be playing songs from their latest album 'Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams'. At 1 p.m. winter sports fans will be able to watch the band perform hits like 'City of Angels' through the Silvretta Arena. At the open-air concert in the middle of the ski area, brothers Jared and Shannon Leto along with guitarist Tomo Miličević, will follow in the footsteps of greats - world stars like Robbie Williams, Elton John, Katy Perry and Rihanna have preceded them on the Top of the Mountain stage. Entry is free when you have a valid ski pass. A day ticket is available for 85 Euro per person. For 4 days and over, standard, discounted ski pass tariffs apply.
Thirty Seconds to Mars is already familiar for a few things – they are in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest concert tour ever. Yet, an open-air concert at 2300 metres is also something new for these experienced musicians. In Ischgl they will present their fourth studio album 'Love Lust Faith + Dreams' - which reached number 3 in the German album charts – on the legendary Idalp stage. In November 2014 the American trio received their third MTV Europe Music Award for 'Best Alternative' act.
Thirty Seconds to Mars took a break from touring in 2012 and spent most of the year recording their fourth album, entitled Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams. The album was produced by Jared Leto with previous collaborator Steve Lillywhite. Leto said that the band took a new direction with Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams. He explained that the album "is more than an evolution, it's a brand new beginning. Creatively, we've gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring".

The legendary Ischgl Top of the Mountain Concert is to provide spectators with world-class entertainment surrounded by ideal winter sport facilities. Skiers are to be transported this year by the new Pardatschgrat tricable gondola lift directly from the centre of the resort to the ski area in next to no time. Freeriders can meanwhile go on the hunt for new lines under the Piz Val Gronda cable car. The area was only opened in winter 2013/2014. The evening will be a time to put the skis down and celebrate the start of the season with a world-famous star.

Thirty Seconds to Mars follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig. Long time ago, Ischgl decided to put its entire advertising and marketing budget into staging two massive concerts a year to open and close the winter season. Elton John was the first star to feature in the Tirolean resort's now famous season closing concerts, back in 1995. Since then the resort has hosted Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Sting, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias, Atomic Kitten, Peter Gabriel, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Lionel Richie, Pink, the Scissor Sisters, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Elton John again, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Gossip, The Killers,Roxette, Mariah Carey, The Scorpions, Deep Purple, Nickelback, Robbie Williams and James Blunt.

Ischgl (1377m) is a truly Ski Paradise in Tirol (Austria) with 238 km of prepared pistes, 43 lifts and lots of interesting new features in the ski resort. The modern lifts managed by the Silvretta Seilbahn AG Company offer a high level of comfort and countless extras, such as heated seats in the Fimbabahn cable car built for the 2007/08 season. A variety of slopes and ski routes offer a opportunity for everyone, from beginners to experts looking for challenging pistes. Eleven is the name of the longest piste with approximately 11 kilometres from the top of the ski resort in Greitspitz (2,872 metres) to Ischgl village (1,400 metres).
From Ischgl you can access to the Silvretta Arena Ski Paradise, thanks to an alliance between two Companies (Silvretta Seilbahn AG and Bergbahnen Sammaun AG) and two ski resorts (Ischgl-Sammaun) from two different countries (Switzerland-Austria).
