Multiple Grammy-winner Bruno Mars, who’s sold more than 170 million singles and 26 million albums, returns to Thailand next April 30 for a show at Impact Arena in Muang Thong Thani.



The “24K Magic World Tour” looks set to repeat the success of his first full-length outing, “Moonshine Jungle” in 2013, for which two million tickets were snatched up and 155 dates were sold out.

Mars – who’s been on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine – has had a number of high-profile TV appearances, including the 2016 American Music Awards, Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and America television’s “Saturday Night Live”.

Critically acclaimed as a singer, songwriter, producer and director, Mars recently dominated the charts with the single “Uptown Funk”, a certified diamond hit that made history as the longest-leading Billboard Hot 100 single of the 2010s. 

Mars returned to the Super Bowl half-time stage last year to perform alongside Beyonce and Coldplay. His 2014 appearance helped make NFL history as the second-most-watched Super Bowl Halftime Show ever, and Mars was the youngest artist ever to serve as headliner. 

According to Billboard, Mars scored his first five Hot 100 No 1 singles faster than any male artist since Elvis Presley, and he’s had 35 of them to date.
