We’ve no doubt the super-fans will know everything about Bruno, from his inside leg measurement, to his siblings names, but for those looking forward to their first Bruno gig, here’s 9 things every Bruno Mars fan should know.


1 – Bruno was born in the Waikiki neighbourhood of Honolulu, Hawaii to a musical family. His parents were both performers and alongside his Elvis impersonating uncle, young Bruno developed a love of music and was performing live on stage at the tender age of 4!

2 – Real name Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno Mars created his stage persona from a nickname given by his dad (Bruno) and tagged Mars to the end when fans labelled him ‘Out of this world’.

3 – Before becoming a recording star in his own right, Bruno has penned a tonne of international hits for fellow artists such as Alexandra Burke, Adam Levine, Travie McCoy, Brandy, Sean Kingston and Flo Rida and the Sugababes.

4 – Will we ever forget the first time we heard Bruno’s silky-smooth tones on B.O.B’s ‘Nothing On You’ single back in 2010? Do you know he co-wrote the track too and it’s success paved the way his stunning debut studio album ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ and the love song of the decade ‘Just the Way You Are’. Awwww

5 – 111.9 million people watched Bruno’s awesome performance at the Super Bowl 50 Half-Time show in 2017, alongside Beyoncé and Coldplay it was the third most watched halftime show in history. Can’t beat a bit of Uptown Funk can you?

6 – Bruno’s band, The Hooligans is made up of 8 members just bursting with musical talent. Bass guitarist Jamero Artis began honing his musical talent from the age of 10 and was the winner of the 2009 P Diddy fronted spin off series ‘Making His Band’ on MTV

7 – Bruno is a dog lover (like we needed any more reason to love him) and is pet Rottweiler is called Geronimo!

8 – Totally gutted even typing this point but, Bruno is currently dating model, Jessica Caban and has been since 2010 so sorry girls, this is no flash in the pan! The couple reportedly have a home in the Hollywood Hills where Bruno spends most of his downtime.

9 – The 24K Magic Tour is Bruno’s 3rd international tour and will take in 86 dates from March to November across Europe and North America. Make sure you have April 15th Sharpied into your diary, on your arm and all over your Google calendar because the Liverpool, Echo Arena gig is one of only 7 UK dates. Imagine how dev’od you’d be to miss it?
