Ahead of his official album release on Friday, Bruno Mars announced yesterday that he will be embarking on a 2017 world tour, including a date in Dublin in April. The 24K Magic tour will kick off in Antwerp at the end of March, with Bruno funking his way through Europe until the North American leg of the tour starting in July.
This is Mars' first major world tour in almost three years, with his last tour, the Moonshine Jungle World Tour, selling 2 million tickets worldwide with 155 sold out dates. It's expected that the 24K Magic will be just as highly sought after, with social media exploding at the news of the concerts yesterday.
Since the release of 'Uptown Funk' , Mars' collaboration with producer Mark Ronson last year, fans have been eagerly anticipating new material from Mars, with his social media presence being fairly quiet during his break from making albums. However, with his release of album title track 24K Magic last month, it seems we have no cause to worry about his sound faltering.
Mars will play the 3Arena on Saturday, April 29th 2017, with tickets available from Ticketmaster. These will be on sale from Monday, 21st November at 10am. Pre-orders of the album are available from his Offical Store, where buyers of the album will also recieve early access to tickets for the tour.
