Bruno Mars is about to take things to another level with an epic primetime television special.
The performer will tape the special at the Apollo Theater in New York City, which will air in November on CBS. The special, Bruno Mars: 24k Magic Live At The Apollo, will feature never-before-seen stage performances intertwined with Mars and his band the Hooligans taking to the streets to sing, dance and entertain everyone they encounter.
The special is another win for Mars, who became the first artist to have two songs spend 24 or more weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 with “That’s What I Like” and “Uptown Funk.” Mars has also performed during the Super Bowl halftime show twice, setting records during his first performance as the first performer under 30 and of Puerto Rican descent to ever headline the show. His Super Bowl XLVIII performance was also the most watched halftime show in history.
Ben Winston, an executive producer on the Apollo special said in a statement, “For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world. To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”
Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment, added, “Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation.He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”
Bruno Mars: 24k Magic Live At The Apollo will air Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 10pm ET on CBS.
