Bruno Mars coming to New Zealand, promoters hint

Promoters are refusing to say if pop star Bruno Mars is about to announce a New Zealand tour, but they are hinting he’s likely to perform nearby soon.

Touring company Live Nation Australasia posted a video to Facebook of Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour saying “stay tuned”.

Asked if Mars would be performing in New Zealand, a Live Nation promoter said “we haven’t made any announcements”.

There was a chance Mars could perform in Australia only. The Live Nation spokesperson said they couldn’t comment on whether negotiations to bring Mars to New Zealand were underway.

The teasing video had been viewed more than 225,000 times. About 6000 people had liked it, yet when asked why the company had posted the video a Live Nation promoter claimed he didn’t know it existed.

The 24K Magic World Tour started last month in Belgium. It was planned to end in November 2017. So far, no performances outside of Europe and North America have been announced.
