Aloe Blacc will support Mars at majority of 40-date tour
Bruno Mars has revealed the next leg of his Moonshine Jungle tour -- and on select dates, he'll be joined by a fellow hitmaker in Pharrell.
The pop singer will kick off the newest set of concerts this May, following two April shows in Mars' hometown of Honolulu, Hawaii. Pharrell, producer extraordinaire and featured artist on two of 2013's biggest songs, Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," will join Mars in five cities -- Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal -- while appearing behind his upcoming solo release with Columbia Records.
Aloe Blacc, best known in America as the vocalist on Avicii's "Wake Me Up," will open for Mars for the vast majority of dates at which Pharrell will not be performing.
The Moonshine Jungle tour's next leg will begin May 27 at Fresno, Calif.'s Save Mart Center, running over 40 total dates before concluding Aug. 17 in Englewood, Colo., at Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre.
As Billboard's Artist of the Year in 2013, Mars tours in support of "Unorthodox Jukebox," his second solo release, which dropped in December 2012. The album has spawned two No. 1 singles on the Hot 100 -- "Locked Out of Heaven" and "If I Was Your Man," as well as the No. 5-peaking "Treasure" and "Gorilla," which hit No. 22. He's also received multiple nominations at the Grammys later this month, including nods for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for "Locked Out of Heaven."
