It appears that 30 Seconds to Mars are close to entering the Guinness Book of World Records for amount of consecutive shows played in support of an album.

Just as the band nears the end of a two-year tour in support of their 2009 album ‘This is War’ and heads for long hiatus, it has been discovered that the band are close to breaking a world record. EMI has announced that the alt-rockers will celebrate their 300th show in support of the album with a special Tribus Centum Numerarae concert at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Dec. 7th, 2011.

The date also marks the most concerts ever played by a band during a single album cycle. Antimusic reports that frontman Jared Leto made this statement in regards to the milestone:

“We have been on the road for an incredible and insane two years and thought what better way to celebrate the end of this phenomenal journey than with a week of special shows in New York City. We thought documenting this for posterity with the Guinness Book of World Records would be fun especially as we aren’t any good at growing our fingernails very long or cultivating the world’s largest squash.”

It has been reported that the band is planning to take at least a few years off after they wrap their current tour, which makes a lot more sense after you see how busy they’ve been the last couple of years.
