NEW YORK -- Jared Leto scaled the Empire State Building this week to announce Thirty Seconds to Mars' 2024 tour.

The Oscar winner climbed the exterior of the New York City landmark Thursday morning, saying in a statement, "The building is a testament of all the things that can be done in the world if we put our minds to it, which is largely the inspiration behind our most recent album, 'It's the End of the World but It's a Beautiful Day.'"

"In 1933, King Kong climbed the Empire State Building. In 2023, @JaredLeto took his place," read the caption of an Instagram post shared by the Empire State Building.

The Seasons 2024 World Tour, the band's first headline tour in over five years, kicks off in Latin America with dates ranging from March 15 to March 30. They then head to Europe from April 16 to June 1 and, later in the year, visit Australia and New Zealand from Sept. 12 to Sept. 19, ABC News reported.
