CBS and Atlantic Records have partnered with multiple Grammy® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, director, musician and two-time Super Bowl Halftime performer Bruno Mars to premiere his first primetime television special, Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo, Wednesday, Nov. 29 (10:00-11:00PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
The special was taped at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City, where Mars kicks off the primetime special in style, with an epic performance atop the Apollo’s landmark marquee. Also, Mars and his band the Hooligans take to the streets, visiting, singing and entertaining locals in exciting, intimate, must-see moments. The special, which will continue to tape in the coming weeks, features never-before-seen stage performances throughout the broadcast.
“For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world,” said Ben Winston, who, alongside Mars, serves as Executive Producer. “To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”
“Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. “He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”
