Thirty Seconds to Mars Plays Ukraine

Thirty Seconds to Mars Plays Ukraine

When he accepted his Oscar, Jared Leto addressed the people struggling in Ukraine and Venezuela:

"To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here, and as you struggle to make your dreams happen and live the impossible, we are thinking of you tonight."

Leto walked that talk on Wednesday night.  His band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, played a concert at Kiev, Ukraine's Independence Square.

Leto led a "Glory to Ukraine" chant.  He also told the crowd:

"You guys are in the midst of something beautiful, and it may be difficult, but there's no price too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself...I understand other bands have cancelled their shows, but there was no fucking way, no fucking way, that Thirty Seconds to Mars wasn't going to be here in this beautiful city in this great country."

Then, he dedicated The Kill to all of the "true believers out there."
