THE MONOLITH MYSTICAL JOURNEY
THE CONCEPT OF A MONOLITH TOUR IS VERY MYSTICAL IN ITSELF
MONOLITHS WERE THE FIRST RELIGIOUS ICONS OF WORSHIP FOR HUMANITY
AND THEN CAME THE MAN AND THE WOMAN AND THEY STARTED TO WORSHIP, ADORE AND VENERATE A MONOLITH.
IT WAS THE FIRST EXPRESSION OF HUMAN RELIGIOSITY
Pedra Azul – Espírito Santo – Brazil
IN PLACES WHERE THERE WERE NOT MONOLITHS, THEY WERE SUBSTITUTED BY TREES
SO, TREES AND MONOLITHS OR MOUNTAINS ARE THE FIRST SYMBOLS OF HUMAN RELIGIOSITY, ADORATION AND WORSHIP
The tree of life
ALL SACRED RITUALS
ALL SACRED ANCIENT RITUALS WERE PERFORMED AROUND A MONOLITH
AND SINCE A TREE COULD NOT BE TRANSPORTED FOR THE RITUAL TO BE DEVELOPED UNDER BETTER CONDITIONS, THE TREE WAS ALSO SUBSTITUTED BY A BONFIRE
SO THESE TWO SYMBOLS OF HUMAN RELIGIOSITY
THE MONOLITH AND THE TREE
THEY ARE STILL PRESENT NOWADAYS IN ALL PLACES AND WERE MODIFIED BUT THEY ARE THERE
A CHURCH MADE OF STONE, REPRESENTS THE MONOLITH, FOR EXAMPLE
SO, THE HUMAN RELIGIOUS LIFE HAS STARTED AND STILL DEVELOPS AROUND A MONOLITH AND A TREE
THAT’S WHERE IT ALL BEGINS
THE MONOLITH TOUR AND ITS MAGIC
The magic I see for this tour is the magic of new beginnings
The magic of renewed enchantment with music and the art of making music.
Music not as a product, thought and made to sell in the mainstream flow;
Music not as portentous spectacles with astounding visual, audible and kinesthetic effects that make you forget it is music, that deviates your attention from the live performance, that brings no visceral connection and interaction with the public.

But music as a live experience of feeling the musician, of listening to his or her voice, noticing his breath at each note, of being taken by the emotion of singing together, of enjoying the band, of dancing, jumping, interacting with the artists and creating with them on the stage.
You never play a song twice, and the public is the great cocreator for each performance.
You need to be there with them and for them, so they can feel what is to make music, what is to live music, what is to breathe music.
Music as an expression of art, of this universal language that joins people from different nationalities, cultures, languages, religions and preferences.
Music that flows from the heart and from the soul
Music that needs to be the genuine extension of the life of the artist, and reflect his story, his creativity, his dreams, his feelings and his moment in life.
What is more beautiful than to feel the viscerality of an artist that performs a song that represents his own story, that burns with meaning, significance and passion.
It is priceless and it is unforgettable
But extremely rare nowadays.
I think 30 Seconds to Mars brings this vicerality to their performance on stage
JARED ENJOYS BEING ON STAGE
IT IS HIS NATURAL PLACE
IT IS WHEN I FEEL HIM THE MOST COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT
AND HE IS ABLE TO EXPRESS ALL HIS PASSION FOR LIFE WHILE SINGING
THIS IS AMAZING
ALSO THE ARTISTS INVITED FOR THIS MONOLITH TOUR ALSO REPRESENT THIS GENUINE ART OF MAKING MUSIC
THEY ARE NOT POPULAR IN A GENERAL SENSE
AND THEY ARE NOT TOO MUCH WORRIED ABOUT IT
THEY MAKE MUSIC AND PLAY MUSIC BECAUSE THEY LIVE IT AND THEY NEED TO BURN IN THEIR OWN HELL OF CREATIVITY AND EXPRESSION
IT HAS ENCHANTED ME IMMENSELY
I AM LOVING EACH DETAIL
I CAN ALREADY FEEL THE MAGIC
I COULD FEEL IT SINCE THE VERY FIRST MOMENT
YES, IT WILL BE MAGICAL
THIS KIND OF MAGIC
THE MAGIC OF MUSIC WHICH IS THE SAME MAGIC OF LIFE.
THIS MAGIC THAT OVERFLOWS DIRECTLY FROM THE HEART AND THE SOUL, SPONTANEOUSLY, UNPRETENTIOUSLY, THAT CANNOT BE BOXED OR DAMMED, AS A LIVING FORCE OF HUMAN NATURE AND ART.
WITH ALL MY LOVE
