Bruno Mars Is Bringing the Funk Uptown for ‘Live at the Apollo’ TV Special

Bruno Mars will take the stage at New York’s famed Apollo Theater for a primetime special set to air on Nov. 29. “Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo” will be broadcast on CBS and is executive produced by the singer along with Ben Winston, who said: “For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world. To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”

Though Mars has performed for a large television audience before, his two Super Bowl halftime appearances, for example, this will be his first solo television special. In addition to a performance with Mars’ band the Hooligans, the event will also feature never-before-seen stage footage.

“Bruno Mars is the very definition of event television,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. “He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”

Mars is a multiple Grammy winner and the first artist to have two songs spend 24 or more weeks in the Billboard Hot 100 top 5 (“That’s What I Like” and “Uptown Funk”). He is now tied with Elvis Presley, Phil Collins and Frankie Valli for the seventh most chart-toppers among male soloists and is also ranked No. 1 among male artists with the most Hot 100 No.1s for this decade.

“Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo” is produced by Fulwell 73 Productions.
