Bruno Mars has announced five support acts to take over for Cardi B who exited the upcoming 24K Magic tour to spend more time with her newborn baby.

Boyz II Men, Ciara, Charlie Wilson, Ella MaiThe Green and Common Kings are slated to support Mars for the U.S. dates of his world tour. Kicking off on Sept. 7 at Pepsi Center in Denver, Boyz II Men will open for Mars on his first two dates and make appearances in Philadelphia and at one of his four stops at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Charlie Wilson will appear second on the tour, hopping on board for shows in Minnesota, Michigan, Texas and California.


Ciara will join the 24K Magic tour in Toronto, Ontario and play six consecutive dates with Mars from Set. 22- Oct. 2 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.  

English singer and songwriter Ella Mai will replace Cardi B for six stops starting on Oct. 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and closing out Oct. 12 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Boyz II Men, Ciara, Charlie Wilson and Ella Mai will all perform one of the four nights at Staples Center in Los Angeles between Oct. 23-27.

Closing out the U.S. leg of the tour, The Green and Common Kings will perform before Mars at two of his three Honolulu, Hawaii shows. The three dates at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii are a record-breaker for the venue, with no other artist in its history to have booked that number of successive dates. 

Produced by Live Nation, Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour has traveled the globe since 2017, and will have made over 135 stops across North America, Latin America, Europe, and the U.K once wrapped this November.
