Jared Leto just won an Academy Award for his part in “Dallas Buyers Club,” but when he comes to Tampa this summer he'll be playing the role of rock star.
Leto's band 30 Seconds to Mars and nu-metal stars Linkin Park announced this morning that they'll join forces for the Carnivores Tour, which includes a stop at Steinbrenner Field on Aug. 9.
It will be the first concert at Steinbrenner Field since 1996, which at the time was called Legends Field.
Tickets go on sale March 10 through Ticketmaster outlets and both bands' websites. Prices will range from $40 to $79 for reserved seats, and $85 to $115 to stand on the field.
AFI will provide opening support on the tour, which kicks off Aug. 8 in West Palm Beach and will stop in 25 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
“We are so excited to join our friends on this epic journey. It's going to be the adventure of a lifetime,” Leto said in a news release.
The New York Yankees, which use the field for spring training, recently installed a new, 26-foot-tall, 63-foot-wide, high-definition video screen at the field.
“The video board is like a giant TV, so you can use it if we have concerts,” Howard Grosswirth, vice president of marketing for the New York Yankees told the Tribune in January.
