A not-so-mysterious golden countdown with the letters "XXIV K" had been posted a week ago on the Japanese concert promoter H.I.P.'s website, and sure enough, on Thursday (July 27), Bruno Mars announced two April 2018 concert dates for Japan.

The Grammy-winning superstar will be playing in Japan for the first time in four years on April 12 and 14, 2018, at the Saitama Super Arena.

Tickets for the 24K Magic Tour are priced from a whopping 100,000 yen (900 USD) for ultimate VIP seats that include access to the VIP lounge, special merch and other perks, to a relatively more reasonable 9,500 yen (85 USD).

Advance tickets go on sale Aug. 25. Mars' tours in North America and Europe sold out in 24 hours, and the tickets to see him live in Japan likely will go quickly, too.
