Mars’ 1st Philippine Invasion Was A Huge Success!


April 8, 2011 long lines stretched at the Araneta Coliseum. The hit maker Bruno Mars had sold the place out with over 16000 people on a Friday night, did make it clear that Mars is touching people with his music. The opening acts were Juris and Michael Copon. They were great and played songs that are mainstream today such as Sa’yo Lamang, Baby and OMG.

The singer/songwriter/producer gave the crowd a playful sense of humour and terrific vocals, while repping for the females (‘doo-wop’ grooves) and the fellas (‘hooligan’ joints), Mars’ first Philippine invasion was an impressive success for the rising star. The party atmosphere didn’t die down and he sounded amazing throughout the entire set. Long guitar solos became the norm and Mars was sure to make eye contact with a few fans up front. He played a lot of songs without any stopping to change clothes.The set list included “ The Other Side ” “Count On Me,” “Liquor Store”, “Our First Time”,  “Marry You”,  “Lazy Song” “Billie Jean” and ”I Want You Back” in support of and in tribute to one of his idols Michael Jackson. Bruno Mars also played his solo remixes of his two chart toppers, “Billionaire” and “Nothin’ On You,” were amazingly flipped and energized with the live band’s arrangement and jammed with Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

When he performed his solo smash hit “Grenade,” the voices of the concert goers were exploded with happiness and excitement. Of course his finale and our daily anthem “Just The Way You Are” brought the biggest moment of the show. He even added “I’m very, very proud to say I’m a Filipino!” He was very thankful to all the support of Pinoy fans.

The crowd chanted “WE WANT MORE !! WE WANT MORE!!! and he obliged the crowd with ”Runaway Baby for his encore.

It was a complete show that lasted about an hour and a half, full of powerful music from his album “Doo-Wops and Hooligans.”
