Tourists visiting the Empire State Building on the morning of November 9th could have caught more than a beautiful view of the city; They could have seen Oscar-winning actor, Jared Leto, scale the building’s 102-stories!
In his bright orange jumpsuit, he has successfully become the first person to legally climb the building.
The entire stunt was to promote his band’s new world tour. It’s Thirty Seconds To Mars’ first tour in five years, beginning in March 2024.
“I was more excited than nervous to tell you the truth. But I have to be honest, it was very, very hard. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be…Just the endurance that it took, the stamina that it took, and it was very sharp,” Leto told NBC’s Today Show. “I made it to the top, and I saw my mother in the window of the 80th floor, and that was a nice surprise.”
