Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Bruno Mars became the first Las Vegas Strip resident headliner to announce a comeback today. Mars will return to Vegas for Fourth of July weekend at Park MGM, set for concerts at Park Theater on July 3, 4, 9, 10, 23 and 24. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 30.

“The opportunity to relaunch our Las Vegas entertainment offerings with Bruno Mars, one of the music industry's iconic superstars, is a moment we've all been anticipating for more than a year,” George Kliavkoff, MGM Resorts President of Entertainment & Sports, said in a statement. “Our guests will be thrilled to hear he is returning to Park MGM to do what he does best—entertain with that high energy and passion that is unmatched on the stage.”

Mars began his residency at the 5,300-seat Park Theater in December 2016 and last performed there in early March, 2020, just before the pandemic shut down the Strip. He donated $1 million last year to an emergency relief fund for MGM Resorts employees.

Mars returned to the pop charts in recent weeks with “Leave the Door Open,” a song from his new Silk Sonic side project with rapper, singer and musician Anderson .Paak, who has also performed in recent years at Park MGM at the On the Record nightclub.

July is shaping up to be a blockbuster music month on the Strip as Usher is set to debut his new residency show at the Colosseum on Caesars Palace on July 16. The other headliner with earlier dates on the calendar is Barry Manilow at the 1,600-seat Westgate International Theater, returning on June 10 at the off-Strip Westgate Las Vegas resort.
