Representatives for Pharrell Williams confirm that the producer/songwriter will no longer appear as special guest on the scheduled Canadian dates due to a personal conflict. The blockbuster 155-date trek is currently lighting up arenas and amphitheaters across North America, with sold out shows continuing through mid-August (see attached itinerary). In addition, the GRAMMY®-winning singer/songwriter/producer performed two sold out shows at the World's Most Famous Arena, New York City's Madison Square Garden, on July 14th and 15th.

With total viewership of 115.3 million, Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show Starring Bruno Mars shattered previous records to becoming the most watched Super Bowl Halftime Show of all time, surpassing the 110.8 million delivered last year by Beyoncé as well as the prior record of 114.0 million set by Madonna in 2012. In the addition to the record-breaking audience, Mars further made history by being the youngest artist to ever serve as the sole NFL Super Bowl Halftime headliner.

Named Billboard magazine's "2013 Artist of the Year," Bruno Mars is among the most extraordinary talents of this or any other era. 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 84x platinum worldwide -- Mars has logged an extraordinary catalogue spanning 22 "Hot 100" hits, marking his numerous gifts as singer, songwriter, musician, and producer

Furthermore, Mars has earned near unprecedented critical acclaim, with Billboard hailing his work as "boldly ambitious and gloriously irreverent." "Bruno Mars is beginning to stake a claim as one of the most gifted songwriters of his generation," declared GQ, while The Hollywood Reporter ranked him "among the best male vocalists that the music industry has to offer." The New York Times summed it up: "(Bruno Mars) is the most formidable synthesizer of styles going in pop today."
