Tour Notes:

Bruno Mars’ third major tour, in support of his third album, 24K Magic, released in Nov. 2016, began with a run through Europe and the U.K. from late March through mid-June, then crisscrossed North America from mid-July through Nov. 11. After only one week off, the tour then resumed in South America and returned to the States for four holiday shows in Washington DC and Las Vegas. For 2018, the tour continues, with multiple shows in Mexico (Jan. 31-Feb. 5), Las Vegas (Feb. 14-19), Australia/New Zealand (Feb. 27-March 29), Asia (April 11-May 13) and Europe (mid-June through mid-July).
