Bruno Mars Smashes the Stage at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show; Tickets for "Moonshine Jungle World Tour" Go on Sale Tomorrow, February 3rd; Mars' Grammy Award-Winning Album "UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX" Officially Certified Double Platinum

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/02/14 -- Bruno Mars made history tonight as he took the stage at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show as the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole NFL Super Bowl Halftime headliner.

The multi-platinum, multi- GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter/producer/musician opened the show with a rousing drum solo on a kit designed to honor his late mother, Bernadette Hernandez. The artwork was modeled after Bruno's arm tattoo dedicated to his mom.

Mars and his eight-piece band, The Hooligans, were dressed from head-to-toe in clothes created custom Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

Mars acted as musical director behind this epic performance, which included upbeat, energetic deliveries of multiple hits from his catalogue including "Locked Out Of Heaven," "Treasure" and "Runaway Baby."

The Red Hot Chili Peppers then took the stage to perform their unforgettable song "Give It Away," as Bruno's special guests. Mars invited the Red Hot Chili Peppers to join him on the Pepsi Super Bowl Half Time stage in August 2013, prior to being announced as the halftime performer. Mars said the Red Hot Chili Peppers were the first name he thought of to join him because they are a "soulful" band who is "passionate about creating music and performing."

The historical halftime spectacular also included a special video package honoring men and women of the United States Armed Forces, capturing personalized messages for their loved ones.

Mars ended the performance with a powerful solo rendition of his GRAMMY® Award-winning No. 1 single "Just The Way You Are," standing midfield, backed by the biggest firework display in NFL Super Bowl history.

Tomorrow, February 3rd at 10am local time, tickets for Mars' eagerly anticipated additional leg of his blockbuster "Moonshine Jungle World Tour" will go on sale at brunomars.com/moonshinejungletour. The acclaimed trek will hit arenas and amphitheaters across North America throughout summer 2014, with dates getting underway May 27th at Fresno's Save Mart Center (see attached itinerary). The global superstar will be joined by special guest Pharrell Williams in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. In addition, Aloe Blacc will join the bill as supporting act on multiple dates.

Last Sunday night at the 56th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, Mars added a second statue to his collection, taking home the award for "Best Pop Vocal Album" for his blockbuster second album, "UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX." What's more, the acclaimed album has been officially certified Double-Platinum in the United States by the R.I.A.A. for sales in excess of 2 million.

Billboard's 2013 Artist of the Year, Bruno Mars is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer and musician. With 130 million singles sold worldwide, the 18-time GRAMMY® Award nominee and winner has made music history more than once, including such milestones as scoring his first five Billboard "Hot 100" chart-toppers faster than any male solo artist since Elvis Presley. In addition to his two acclaimed multi-platinum albums -- 2010's "DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS" and 2012's "UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX," of which share a combined certification total of 74x platinum worldwide -- Mars has logged an extraordinary catalogue spanning 22 "Hot 100" hits, marking his numerous gifts as singer, songwriter, musician, and producer.
