Bruno Mars to headline NYE show in Abu Dhabi

Superstar Bruno Mars is heading this way for a bit of Uptown Funk at the Resolution by Night festival on Yas Island.

 

The two-day mega festival starting December 31st promises to outshine any celebratory firework display bringing in the New Year on the night.

Our man Bruno headlines the first night of the show, Resolution by Night. Hot on the heels the next day is Resolution by Day on 1st January 2019.

Bruno Mars is one of the biggest forces in contemporary music, as prolific as he is lauded. Wikipedia currently puts his major accolade tally at 11 Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, four Guinness World Records, nine American and 10 Soul Train Music Awards. And he’s only 33. How does he do it? We want to know!!

Success has been his since 2010 when he first hit the music scene. Think smash hits like “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade.” More than 130 million copies worldwide later and he’s gone on to R&B-influenced, soulful pop hits from albums “Doo-Wops & Hooligans”, “Unorthodox Jukebox”, “Earth to Mars”, and his latest, 2016 album “24K Magic.”

The entertainment company behind the festival, Flash Entertainment, described Bruno Mars as ‘headlining’ and being ‘part of’ the night time event.  Does this signal that other acts are still to be announced? We can only wait and see.

And what better way to kick off 2020 than in a Bouncy Cage of Doom. Start as you mean to go on we say.

There’s also stage entertainment in the form of live theatrical shows, and magic by cheeky funster, Magic Phil.

We’d catch a grenade for these tickets. But fortunately ‘operational human shield’ is not prerequisite. They’re available through official stockists, Ticket Master.

The event kicks off at 6pm on 31st December, at du Arena, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
