Bruno Mars is coming to the heart of Harlem!
This fall, the Grammy-winning crooner is teaming up with CBS to deliver his first primetime TV special, “Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo.”
Set to air Nov. 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, the electrifying special was taped at the iconic Apollo Theater in New York City, where Bruno delivered a show-stopping performance in an intimate setting.
Ben Winston is executive producing the special alongside Mars. “For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world,” he said. “To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”
CBS’ Executive Vice President, Special, Music and Live Events also praised Mars. “Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation,” said Jack Sussman. “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’s critically acclaimed third studio album, 24K Magic, was recently certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA. The album and its lead single, “24K Magic,” simultaneously hit No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Albums and Overall Songs charts during its week of release. The single peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has also been certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA. The album’s 5x Platinum certified second single, “That’s What I Like,” recently climbed to #1 on the Hot 100, marking his seventh Hot 100 chart-topper and his first #1 on the Hot R&B Songs chart, where it remained at the top-spot for 19 consecutive weeks.
In support of his latest album, Mars has been traveling the globe on his massive “24K Magic World Tour,” which sold over 1 million tickets in a single day.
