Bruno Mars Tickets for Sale
Bruno Mars is out with a new album, Unorthodox Jukebox, and is set to back this album up with a new tour. The Moonshine Jungle Tour is going to keep the celebrated pop star busy from June to November 2013. Overall, Bruno Mars tickets are going to be available for 68 shows, 40 in the North America and 28 in Europe.
Unorthodox Jukebox is the singer/songwriter’s second studio album and it is an album that is keeping everyone guessing. Some love it for the R&B tracks, some prefer the 1980s synth-rock tunes, and others like the simple pop songs. Critics, overall, are finding this to be a very good pop album with great hooks and engaging lyrics. Fans have responded quite well to the album too, taking it gold in just a couple months.
This album has done much more for Bruno Mars than produce great sales numbers. It has made him a star. He has managed to tap into the something special with the songs on this album. The singles, “Lock Out of Heaven” and “When I Was Your Man” have become international hits and have outsold the album. Hopefully this is first of many hit albums and songs to be released by the charismatic young artist.
Bruno Mars is not his real name. This should not be a shocker. Rather, the singer was born Peter Hernandez. It can be argued Peter Hernandez was raised to become Bruno Mars though. His parents were both musicians and he performed in a band with his parents and extended family on their home island of Hawaii beginning at an early age. Still, Peter felt he needed a name under which he could perform, so he took his father’s old nickname for him (Bruno) and the feeling that he came from another world (Mars) and created a musical persona.
Like many musicians, before he became a star he had to endure the cruelty of the music business. The promise of a record label brought him to Los Angeles at the age of 18, but ultimately the deal would go nowhere. Bruno remained a talented musician and manager Aaron Bay-Schuck would do his best to keep Mars busy while he worked on giving the artist a chance to record an album. This would mean spending time as a songwriter, becoming part of a three-man production team called the Smeezingtons, and moonlighting as a hook artist.
This flurry of activity kept him busy and it eventually earned him enough notice to sign a real deal with Atlantic Records. His first offering would be Doo-Wops & Hooligans. The album “only” went platinum, but its singles did spectacularly well. “Just the Way You Are”, “Grenade”, and “Count on Me” were certified international hits. Bruno Mars followed these hits up with a multi-platinum single on the Twilight Saga soundtrack, “It Will Rain”.
Bruno Mars has enjoyed this kind of success because he has eclectic musical taste. He uses this musical taste to create perfect pop songs that can hardly be said to be forgettable. These songs may have R&B roots or feature a note of rock, but it is something that appeals to the masses. He continues this with Unorthodox Jukebox. The album is certain to add some platinum plated albums to his wall and to further his career as he develops into the next great male pop star.
