Bruno Mars will take his 24K Magic act on the road in 2017 with a massive, 85-date world tour.
The world tour kicks off in Antwerp, Belgium on March 28th and jets around Europe before opening its North American leg July 15th at Las Vegas’T-Mobile Arena. The 24K Magic Tour will crisscross the continent, including two nights each at Chicago’s United Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, before concluding with a four-night stand at Los Angeles’The Forum November 7th, 8th, 10th and 11th.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale on Monday, November 21st. Mars will release 24K Magic on November 18th, with fans who pre-order the album gaining early access to tour tickets.
Mars previously gave fans a sampling of his energetic live show when he served as musical guest on Saturday Night Live, where he performed his single “24K Magic” alongside the new album’s “Chunky.” Mars’October was also packed with promotional performances and concerts, including an October 7th gig at Uncasville, Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Arena and a stop at the MTV European Video Music Awards.
In Mars’recent Rolling Stone cover story, the singer admitted he sometimes feels out of place in a music world filled with streaming exclusives.
“Sometimes I feel like I’m in the music business 10 years too late,” Mars said. “How many platforms do we have? Whose money are we giving to who? It’s this weird game. You don’t even buy songs anymore – it’s just a subscription; it’s Netflix. And while we’re in the process of figuring it all out, I’m here trying to make albums.”
