Fans of pop sensation Bruno Mars have good reason to rejoice with a second show added to his scheduled Manila concert next year.


On Thursday, concert promoter MMI Live announced via Facebook they have scheduled another show on May 4, 2018, “due to demand.”

The announcement came after tickets to Mars’s first show, scheduled on May 3, 2018, sold out in less than an hour.

Tickets for the second show will be available Friday, Sept. 8, at SM tickets branches.

Mars first performed in the country in 2014 for his “Moonshine Jungle” world tour.

Born Peter Gene Hernandez to a Hawaiian father and a Filipina mother, Mars shot to fame in 2009 after being featured on “Nothin’ On You” by B.o.B. and “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy.

His latest album, “24K Magic,” which was released last year yielded three hit singles, including the title track, “Versace on the Floor,” and “That’s What I Like.”

Childhood & Early Life
  • He was born as Peter Gene Hernandez on 8 October, 1985, in Honolulu, Hawaii. His father Peter Hernandez was a Latin percussionist while his mother Bernadette “Bernie” San Pedro Bayot was a singer cum dancer. He was nicknamed “Bruno” as a child. He has five siblings.

  • His parents exposed him to a diverse variety of music from childhood. He was naturally inclined towards the performance arts since both his parents were professional performers. One of his uncles, an Elvis impersonator, encouraged Bruno to perform on stage when he was a three-year-old. He soon started performing with his family band and gained popularity in his hometown for his impersonation of Elvis Presley.

  • He attended the President Theodore Roosevelt High School from where he graduated in 2003. While at school, he used to perform in a group, called, The School Boys.
    • Bruno Mars moved to Los Angeles, California, shortly after his graduation to pursue a musical career. It was at this time that he adopted the stage name “Bruno Mars”.

    • He signed to Motown Records in 2004 and though this deal turned out to be fruitless, he got the opportunity to meet the songwriter and producer Phillip Lawrence who was also signed to the same label.

    • Lawrence introduced Mars to his future A&R manager at Atlantic Records, Aaron Bay-Schuck, in 2006. Soon he was signed to Atlantic Records and from there his career took off.

    • In addition to his career as a singer, Bruno Mars collaborated with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine to establish the songwriting and record production team, The Smeezingtons, in 2009. The team became very popular and has been much in demand since its inception. The team has worked with various artists and received mainstream awards including the ASCAP Pop Music Awards for Songwriters.

    • In July 2010 he released his first solo single, “Just the Way You Are”, from his debut studio album, ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’, released after a few months in October. The single peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was named “the year’s finest pop debut” and catapulted Bruno Mars to international stardom.

    • His much anticipated second album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ was released in December 2012. The album’s lead single, “Locked Out of Heaven”, topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks and landed in the Top 10 in 20 countries, making it a huge international success. This album too became a critical as well as commercial success.
