30 Seconds to Mars Rockers 30 Seconds To Mars reached new heights on Tuesday (18Jun13) when the band performed on the roof of the O2 Arena in London.

The group, led by frontman Jared Leto, braved the blustery English weather to play an acoustic set atop the huge venue - 173 feet (52.7 metres) above the banks of the River Thames.

The performance was in celebration of the O2 Arena's roof walk experience first anniversary, and the rockers - who wore harnesses for safety reasons - played tracks from the band's new album Love Lust Faith & Dreams.

30 Seconds To Mars aren't the first band to perform on the roof of the O2 - Bon Jovi played there in 2010.
