Bruno Mars’ ’24K Magic’ Tour Has Made $200 Million … So Far
Since the release of his hit album 24K Magic in late 2016, Bruno Mars has pretty much been on tour.
And now, Billboard has shared the numbers for his massive trek, which lands at close to a quarter of a billion dollars. Yep, Mars has made $200 million and sold just over two million tickets, so far.
The huge 24K Magic World Tour, which is produced by Live Nation, began in Belgium on March 28, 2017 and ran in Europe until mid-June. His North American run began that July and his Latin America jaunt began in November. So far, Mars has had a total 115 headlining performances.
And he's not stopping. Mars will continue his tour well into the middle of 2018, with shows in New Zealand, Australia and an Asian run through April and May. The tour won't end until the British Summer Time Festival at London’s Hyde Park on July 14.
It's not only his music and style that's old school—so is his work ethic. Taking a note from greats like James Brown, who was the hardest working man in show business, Mars didn't just work this album for six months—he'll basically have been on tour for a year and a half. And the payout will clearly be huge.
