Though not a traditional residency like that of Britney Spears or Celine Dion, Mars will help kick off the opening season for both the Park Theater at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas and The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
“Bruno is among the most talented performers in the world and we are excited to start a long-term relationship with him across our industry-leading portfolio of entertainment venues,” Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International said to ET in a statement. “There is no stronger launching pad for a new venue than for Bruno Mars to be among the first to grace its stage, and we get to do it twice, an amazing beginning to a multi-year partnership.”
Mars will celebrate the New Year on Dec. 30 and 31 at the Las Vegas location and will return in 2017 for additional performances in March. Tickets for his performance will go on sale on Friday at 1 p.m.ET. Tickets can be purchased online at parktheaterlv.com or ticketmaster.com.
The “24K Magic” singer will also host an event on Dec. 27 in Maryland, after the MGM National Harbor’s grand opening earlier that month. Tickets can be purchased online at mgmnationalharbor.com or ticketmaster.com.
