World-famous musical megastar Bruno Mars is bringing some of his 24 karat magic to Abu Dhabi to celebrate the start of 2020.
That’s right, the Hawaiian singer-songwriter, pop star polymath will be performing at Resolution by Night on Yas Island.
Organised by Flash Entertainment and the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the huge party will be held at du Arena on December 31 and January 1.
Mars rose to prominence in 2010 with his debut album Doo-Wop & Hooligans and hits The Lazy Song, Just The Way You Are and Grenade. Follow-up Unorthodox Jukebox got to number one. In 2014, he collaborated with producer Mark Ronson on Uptown Funk. 24k Magic, his 2016 album was another smash. With more than 200 million singles sold and 26 million albums worldwide, he’s one of the biggest solo artists of all time and we can’t wait to ring in the new year with him.
Tickets start from Dhs350 for standard tickets, with prices rising to Dhs1,550 for Tree House tickets (an elevated platform with a dedicated bar). They go on sale at noon today (Monday September 16).
On New Year’s Day, Resolution by Day will take over du Arena.
The family event will be open from 2pm until 10pm with attractions including the ultimate MONSTER, which is coming from the UK. It’s a 300m-long inflatable castle with more than 40 obstacles and an 18m Mega Slide, as well as the Tunnel of Love and The Bouncy Cage of Doom. Sounds brilliant.
There will also be stage shows and roaming entertainment from the likes of face painters and magician Magic Phil.
