American star Bruno Mars sold more than one million tickets for his '24K Magic World Tour' in a single day
Bruno Mars sold more than one million tickets for his '24K Magic World Tour' in just 24 hours.
Tickets for the 31-year-old singer's Europe and North America tour dates went on sale on Monday (21.11.16), and fans of the chart-topping star wasted no time in seizing the opportunity to watch Bruno in the flesh.
Bruno's 100-date '24K Magic World' tour sees the American singer - whose real name is Peter Hernandez - appear at five shows in the New York City area, as well as four nights at The O2 Arena in London and another four shows at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
The shows will include performances of the hits from Bruno's '24K Magic' album, which featured the single 'Versace on the Floor'.
Meanwhile, Bruno recently admitted he found it "daunting" working on his new album.
Bruno said he was apprehensive about releasing '24K Magic', his first album in four years, because of the success he previously enjoyed with the single 'Uptown Funk'.
He recently shared: "This album, it was daunting, because coming off of 'Uptown Funk' was like the biggest song I've ever been a part of. And then you're like, alright, now what are you gonna do?"
Bruno also said he "really cares" about what his fans think of him and his music.
He explained: "I just really care about what people see. I want them to know that I'm working hard for this. The artists that I look up to like, you know, Michael, Prince, James Brown. You watch them and you understand that they're paying attention to the details of their art.
"And they care so much about what they're wearing, about how they're moving, about how they're making the audience feel. They're not phoning it in. They're going up there to murder anybody that performs after them or performs before them. That's what I've watched my whole life and admired."
