Rock act 30 Seconds To Mars hit a new high when they performed a gig on the roof of the O2 Arena.

The band, fronted by Hollywood star Jared Leto, played a selection of acoustic songs after scaling the roof of the former Millennium Dome.

They were on the roof - which is 52 metres above ground - to mark the first birthday of the Up At The O2 walkway which occurs later this week.

The band, who will play the venue on November 23 as part of their newly announced nationwide tour, recently charted with single Up In The Air, from top five album Love Lust Faith + Dreams.

They were the first band to perform on the roof since Bon Jovi in 2010.
