Pop-R&B star Bruno Mars will star in a primetime television special “Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo” will be broadcast on CBS on Nov. 29, according to CBS. Mars will perform and executive produce the television special. The show will feature the popular entertainer and his band walking the streets of Harlem, “visiting, singing, and entertaining locals in exciting, intimate, must-see moments.”
Mars taped the show at New York’s historic Apollo Theater, where he performed the opening sequence by dancing on top of the marquee, according to the LA Times.
Bruno Mars News posted pictures of the “Versace On the Floor” singer dancing on top of the Apollo Theater on Twitter.
The CBS special will be Mars first television special. He performed live before large television audiences during his two Super Bowl performances, but this show will be different because it will be a solo performance. The event will feature Mars’ band the Hooligans, as well as stage footage that has not been shown before, according to Rolling Stone.
Five-time Grammy winner Bruno Mars is the first artist to have two songs on the Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 for 24 or more weeks. With the success of his songs “That’s What I Like” and “Uptown Funk,” Mars is tied with Elvis Presley, Frankie Valli, and Phil Collins for seventh most chart-toppers among male soloists, according to Variety.
