Bruno Mars to play here for first time
BRUNO Mars fans, rejoice: The Grammy-winning pop superstar will play a long-awaited Singapore concert next year.
According to tour dates posted on his official website, the gig will take place on March 26 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
It will be the 28-year-old's first performance here.
Concert promoter Lushington Entertainments told MyPaper that ticketing details have yet to be finalised, but will be released in the coming days.
Hawaii-born Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, started out as a producer before taking the music scene by storm in 2010 with his well-received debut album, Doo-Wops And Hooligans.
That outing spawned instant hits like Grenade and Just The Way You Are.
The guy, who is of Puerto Rican and Philippine parentage, followed that record up with last year's Unorthodox Jukebox, with tracks like Locked Out Of Heaven and When I Was Your Man topping charts around the world.
Full-time singer Nana Karia, 33, has been a fan of Mars since 2010 and plans on getting front-row tickets as soon as they are released.
"Being an entertainer myself, I love everything about him - from his vocals to his musicianship and entertainment value - as well as what he represents," she told MyPaper.
"He's the only pop star in this millenium that I'd go crazy about, now that Michael Jackson is gone."
