News of the primetime special first emerged over the weekend, when Mars and his band the Hooligans were spotted performing atop the famed New York City venue’s marquee.
Dubbed The Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo special, which airs November 29th, will also feature the singer walking the streets of Harlem, “visiting, singing and entertaining locals in exciting, intimate, must-see moments,” the special promises.
“For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world,” said Ben Winston, who, alongside Mars, serves as executive producer. “To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”
“Bruno Mars is the ultimate live performer of this generation,” added Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. “He is the very definition of event television. He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”
