The atmosphere was electric. I went to see him with my daughter, who is also a massive fan, we sat for hours just to get as close to him as possible. Fellow fans were great and friendly - his stage production was out of this world, playing Locked Out of Heaven, Grenade and best of all Gorillaz and a solo performance on the drums by the man himself.
The rest of the band members were equally as good and totally wowed the crowds with their moves, a truly awesome experience which we intend to repeat again and again and again and again.
Bruno was magnificent - such a huge amount of energy from a little guy and the alternative versions of his hits were fantastic. He was backed-up by a superb band who were all excellent musicians and they really seemed to be enjoying themselves. His vocals were flawless for a whole 2 hours. I think this has to be one of the best concerts I've been to.
I had a smile on my face from beginning to end watching this young man perform. He is a born showman, who genuinely looks like he is enjoying himself on stage. A great atmosphere greeted all of his major hits, everyone was up on their feet and dancing especially when he played the Lazy song and Gorilla. He is an outstanding singer, dancer and musician. First class entertainer, if you havent seen him yet make sure you go!
When Bruno Mars comes to town, he doesn't do things by half. A fantastic show that delivered all his best numbers: Billionaire, Marry you, Grenade and, of course, Just the way you are.
Bringing with him a sense of theatre, dance, effects, and sheer sex appeal is all in abundance, while comparisons to Michael Jackson and the passion of Bruce Springsteen spring to mind. He's seriously good live and fans knew it all the way to the back row!
Saw Bruno Mars at the O2 in London last month on his birthday, October 8! Ive saw him on his last tour but this gig was the best, couldn't believe how many hits he played - he has loads, was excellent to hear Grenade and Just the Way you Are too! He didnt say an awful lot during the show but the music did all the talking.
