Bruno Mars' '24K Magic' tour sold 1 million tickets in a day
That boy good.
With a hit (and magic-made) album on his hands, Bruno Mars is unarguably pop culture’s man of the hour. So when tickets for his global tour went on sale this week, the big question raised wasn’t on how many tickets were going to sell, but quickly they would go.
According to Live Nation, more than one million tickets were sold for the 24K Magic World Tour in a single day.
Tickets for Mars’ Europe and North America tour dates went on sale Monday (November 21), just hours after the singer’s epic set at the American Music Awards and a “60 Minutes” profile that marked his first on-camera interview in over four years.
The singer has since added 15 more shows to the tour, which now has a total of 100 dates. The new additional dates include five shows in New York City, four nights at London’s O2 Arena and four Los Angeles gigs at the Forum.
Tickets (while they still last) are available now.
In regards to Bruno Mars’ third studio album, 24K Magic is set debut in the Top 3 of the Billboard 200 chart. According to HDD, the album is expected to sell between 200-210k copies (175-185k in pure sales) in its first week. It is expected to fall behind Metallica’s grand return (Hardwired… to Self-Destruct), which is on pace to sell 305-315k (295-305k) in pure sales.
