After Bruno Mars kicked off the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night with an electrifying performance of his new single "Treasure," Mars' manager Brandon Creed stopped by Billboard's Backstage live stream to speak with Billboard editorial director Bill Werde. On Mars' intense work ethic and the pressure of opening an awards show, Creed played down any anxiousness that may have built, instead saying Mars was more focused and excited than nervous. "He spends a lot of time rehearsing and preparing, and directing and doing choreography, everything," he said. "It's all him... He takes it from the past and brings it to today. Wait 'til you see the tour."
On the subject of the upcoming tour, Creed didn't have much to elaborate on, but still expressed his excitement. "We're going into rehearsals now, so I don't have much to share, but it's going to be... incredible," he said. "It's hectic, but it's amazing... It's a thrill to work with an artist so talented."
