You gotta have a special relationship with MGM Resorts if you’re gonna ride a Jet Ski around the fountains at Bellagio. Now we know why Bruno Mars was allowed to do so in the video for his new single “24K Magic”—the 17-time Grammy nominee is the new resident at MGM’s Park Theater at Monte Carlo, which opens December 17.

Mars, whose third album is expected soon, has performed frequently on the Strip in recent years, including his first Vegas residency at the Chelsea inside the Cosmopolitan. He’ll debut at the Park Theater for New Year’s Eve on December 30 and 31, with return dates scheduled for March. He’ll also perform on December 27 at the Theater at MGM National Harbor, becoming one of the first artists to play the company’s new resort in the Washington, D.C. area, set to open December 8.

Tickets for the Vegas shows are $99.50-$550, go on sale October 14 and are limited to eight per person. They can be purchased at or
