If you aren’t a fan yet, you soon will be. Bruno Mars’ polished pop and smooth R & B sound has made him a presence in mainstream music. He’s one Grammy Award shy of a dozen, was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People, was the first artist to reach the top 10 with 13 singles right out of the gate, has seven No. 1 singles overall and is one of the most downloaded artists of all time. Songs like “Grenade,” “Gorilla,” “Moonshine” and the ultra-danceable “Uptown Funk” become even better when you see him live. He is one of those transcendent performers akin to James Brown, Springsteen and Prince—he’s that good. Go back and watch his mesmerizing Super Bowl 50 halftime performance or, more recently, his showstopping performance at this year’s Grammys. In Las Vegas, he is easily one of the most sought-after tickets in the city.
