Bruno Mars is the rare artist who has a repertoire of irresistible hits and an instantly memorable stage presence. So of course he’ll be performing front and center at the festival known for booking the greatest names in music. Worldwide hits, impeccable vocals and dance moves, that extra glitz that Rock in Rio always provides…there are more than enough reasons to make sure you arrive in Vegas for our first appearance in the USA.
The singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist released his first album Doo Wops & Hooligans in 2010, instantly earning a spot on the best-seller list. Just two short years later, his album Unorthodox Jukebox became another worldwide smash, accumulating more accolades: two Grammys, sales topping more than 11 million albums and 68 million singles around the world, and making Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential artists in the world. Check out his latest single “Uptown Funk”, with artist Mark Ronson:
Rock in Rio USA will be held over the course of two weekends–on May 8 and 9, then May 15 and 16. Bruno Mars will be the main attraction of the second weekend, which is dedicated to pop music. Many artists are already confirmed for the first edition of the festival in Las Vegas: Metallica, Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, Joss Stone, and Deftones. And there will be many, many more! Stay tuned.
