After “Uptown Funk” star Bruno Mars sold out his October 4 show in Tel Aviv in just two hours, promoter Live Nation Israel added another performance for October 7 in the city’s Yarkon Park.
There are approximately 50,000 places available in Yarkon Park. Last week Guns N’ Roses sold out the outdoor venue.
The Grammy Award-winning — 15 so far — Bruno Mars has a string of well-known hits, including “That’s What I Like,” “Treasure,” “Uptown Funk,” and “Just the Way You Are.”
Mars, born in Hawaii, has Jewish lineage through his half Puerto Rican-half Jewish father who is originally from Brooklyn, New York. One grandparent, of Hungarian and Ukrainian descent, was reportedly a Hebrew teacher.
He’s known for his stage performances and showman style, and for singing and producing pop, R&B, funk, soul, reggae, disco and rock songs.
