Bruno Mars has announced a Las Vegas residency at MGM’s Park Theater at Monte Carlo, set to open December 17-March 12. The 17-time Grammy nominee has performed frequently on the Strip in recent years, including his first Vegas residency at the Chelsea inside the Cosmopolitan. Bruno Mars is expected to perform at the Park Theater for New Year’s Eve on December 30 and 31. Tickets for the Vegas go on sale today (October 14) via Ticketmaster. Prices on the primary market range from $99.50-$550.
Bruno Mars’ music video for his new single, “24K Magic,” was filmed in Las Vegas at MGM Grand, along with a jet-ski ride around The Bellagio Fountains and hotel hallway motorized scooter-chair race. Mars is expected to release his new album, 24k Magic, on November 18.
Though his stay is not a traditional residency like that of Britney Spears, the 31-year-old singer will help kick off the opening season for both the Park Theater at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas and The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
How will Bruno’s ticket prices stack up to the other major artists who have held residencies in Vegas? Historically, artists with shorter residencies have posted some of the priciest tickets. With fewer demand, fans heading to Vegas have a harder time getting ahold of tickets. Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s residency in 2013 was a perfect example of this, as tickets to see the country duo averages a whopping $616. Artists who have held longer residencies, like Britney Spears and Elton John, have posted more affordable resale averages throughout the years. With his new album to boot, Mars is likely to be one of the top-priced shows on the Strip. Tickets for Bruno Mars in Vegas have hit the resale market, and a handful of dates are already pushing strong resale averages.
Just this week, Vegas veteran Elton John announced four new dates to his Million Dollar Piano Residency. Tickets for all four shows go on sale this Sunday, October 16.
