SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Fresh off a headline-grabbing performance at the 2013 Grammy Awards and riding a string of billboard hits, Bruno Mars will bring his "Moonshine Jungle World Tour" to the Xcel Energy Center this summer.
The show is scheduled for Sunday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m. Ellie Goulding will be his special guest.
Bruno Mars is among contemporary pop's most versatile and prolific artists, with global sales currently certified at 40 times-platinum and over 50 million singles sold worldwide. In his short career Mars has received 14 Grammy nominations.
Mars burst on the music scene with his 2010 release "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," a record greeted with both popular and critical acclaim. "The year's finest pop debut," raved Rolling Stone. "Near-flawless...(the album) delivers pleasure without pretension."
Fueled by a string of hit singles, including the multi-platinum No. 1 smashes, "Just The Way You Are" and "Grenade," the album confirmed Mars as a major force in modern pop music.
