Jared Leto is now definitely going to Australia. No cancellations. No second thoughts. No more rescheduling. The "Oscar" winner is now preparing to conquer Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney with his band "Thirty Seconds to Mars."

". . . I understand other bands have cancelled their shows, but there was no f***ing way, no f***ing way, Thirty Seconds to Mars wasn't going to be here in this beautiful city, in this great country here tonight,' Jared Leto was caught saying by someone in the audience during his band's performance in Russia. The said speech was posted in the Web through a video.

And same goes with Australia. Jared Leto and his band was supposed to tour Australia in 2013 but had to reschedule and put down March 2014. But, now, there is no delay because Leto and Thirty Seconds to Mars will be in an Australian Tour, promoting their newest album "Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams."

On March 19, Leto announced on his Twitter account the release of his band's new single "Do or Die," which is included in the "Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams" album. In addition to that, the actor encourages his fans to request the new single to be played on the radio.

Earlier, on March 17, Leto had his fans freaked out when he shared an image from his Instagram account showing him with short hair.

"Short hair don't care" was written to describe the image. There was no description saying that it was supposed to be a throwback picture. Fans initial reaction to that, of course, was to freak out.

But no, Leto is not going to perform with short hair. The actor/frontman still prefers to wear his hair long. Australia will still have the privilege to see his long hair.

On March 20, the Oscar-winning actor sounded excited as he announced on his Twitter account that he is going to see Australia, soon.

Below are "Thirty Seconds to Mars" Australian Tour dates according to the band's Web site:

March 25 - Challenge Stadium, Perth

March 27 - ARTIFACT Screening with Jared Leto in Melbourne

March 28 - Hisense Arena, Melbourne

March 29 - ARTIFACT Screening with Jared Leto in Sydney

March 29 - Entertainment Centre, Sydney

March 30 - Riverstage, Brisbane
