It’s Been a Magic Ride

We may be heading towards cooler temperatures, but Grammy-winning hit-maker Bruno Mars has hot plans for the City of Entertainment. Beginning Sept. 3, Mars returns to Las Vegas for his final set of scorching performances at Park Theater.

Born in 1985 as Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno was always destined for the lights of Sin City. Part of a large musical family, he began performing for audiences at age 3. Known as “Little Elvis” for his impersonation of The King, Mars had a bit part at age 7 in the film Honeymoon In Vegas and launched his first Vegas residency at The Cosmopolitan in 2013.

While the word “superstar” is often tossed around with abandon, Mars deserves the label. Rising like a rocket, the Honolulu native went from near obscurity to phenomenon in less than a decade. With only three studio albums, the singer has managed to make an impact unseen since the days of Prince and the Revolution.

Mars may indeed be the heir apparent to the Purple One’s throne. His backstory, style and career path are remarkably similar. And much like the legendary funkmeister, Mars manages to defy musical genres by blending rock, R&B, pop, dance, soul, reggae and even a little New Jack Swing into his own brand of “Uptown Funk.”

Bruno and his band The Hooligans manage to cast a spell on every generation and culture. Their party-hearty hits are just as popular at weddings as they are at nightclubs. And of course, you’ll hear favorites like “24K Magic” in dozens of other productions around the city.

Since opening in 2016, the residency has sold out nearly every performance at Park MGM’s beautiful new theater, and was extended to this year. Be a part of Vegas history when three successful years come to a close. –Sam Novak

Park Theater at Park MGM, 9 p.m. Sept. 3-4, 7, 9-10 & 13-14, starting at $87.61 plus tax and fee. 844.600.7275
