About Bruno Mars

Since he burst onto the music scene in 2010, Mars has been one of the most lauded artists in the world, with his record sales exceeding 130 million copies worldwide. After the release of his first two smash hit singles, “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade,” in 2010, Mars and his powerful vocals quickly became an international hit. Since then, he has earned major success with many other R&B-influenced, soulful pop hits from albums “Doo-Wops & Hooligans”, “Unorthodox Jukebox”, “Earth to Mars”, and his latest, 2016 album “24K Magic”.

Another undoubted career highlight includes Mars becoming the youngest artist to headline the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show for the 2016 final, which was the most watched show of all time, with a record-breaking 115.3 million viewers. In 2018, Billboard named his 24K Magic World Tour the fourth highest – grossing of the year, tallying more than $237 million for 100 shows.
