Bruno Mars to make “Magic” with first primetime TV special


Michelle Crowe/CBSBruno Mars has played the Super Bowl — twice — and won numerous Grammys.  He’s toured the world and appeared on dozens of TV shows, but he’s never had his very own TV special — until now.

Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo will air November 29 on CBS at 10 p.m. ET/PT.  The special started recording a few days ago at New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater; Bruno filmed the opening sequence on top of the famed venue’s iconic marquee.

Also in the special, Bruno and his band The Hooligans will take to the streets of New York, entertaining and chatting with the locals.  The special will continue to record in the coming weeks, capturing a number of “never-before-seen” performances.

In a statement, executive producer Ben Winston 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.”

A CBS programming exec added, “Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation. He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history.”

Bruno’s 24K Magic tour kicks off this Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina.
