Bruno Mars Kicks Off Moonshine Jungle Tour

June 24, 2013 09:20 AM by Lisa Princ

Bruno Mars may still be nursing a broken heart since the loss of his mother a few weeks ago, but that was not about to keep The Voice guest star from giving his fans what they want. In fact, Bruno Mars kicked off his new tour, Moonshine Jungle this weekend, and in typical fashion, amazed his fans!

Obviously, this is still a very tough time for Bruno Mars, who lost his mother earlier this month due to an aneurysm. However, Bruno, who has been lying low since her passing, knew exactly what his mother would want him to do – keep singing! “So thankful for all the love during the most difficult time in my life. I’ll be back on my feet again soon. That’s what mom wants, she told me,” the 27-year-old singer Tweeted before the tour.

And that is exactly what he did this weekend as Mars kicked off his new Moonshine Jungle tour in Washington D.C., and according to fans, it was impressive! Bruno gave fans a special treat with the very first performance of Gorilla, a track off his album, Unorthodox Jukebox. The performance included fire blasting from the stage, but according to Mars, who spoke to Ryan Seacrest prior to the tour, he wants to make his shows more about the performance and less about the effects.

After the show, Bruno Mars took to Twitter to share his excitement, posting: “Thank you DC! last night was magical for me. We’re back at it!” We’re thrilled that Bruno Mars is back at it again also! The next stops on his tour include Philadelphia and Boston.

    Well, I was at the Washington, D.C. show, and it was FANTABULOUS ! It was the most amazing performance, that I have seen since the Jackson’s VICTORY tour in 1984, at the RFK stadium, in Washington, D.C. ! Bruno Mars was born to ENTERTAIN, and I pray that he entertains us for a LONG time ! He is awesome, not to mention naturally handsome ! He is my new idol ! ( James Brown was my old idol ). By the way, like James Brown, Bruno Mars does not need ” special effects ” ! Bruno can STAND on his own talent !

    Bruno is a TRUE entertainer. He has evolved and matured in such a natural realistic manner. His new album shows another way music and the greats like MJ, Prince, and Sting have influenced him. He’s a true showman. Seen two of his new shows and may I say VA-VA-VOOM! SEXY! But not raunchy. Classy yet Suave. Bruno has brought NuDisco with a retro flair that is truly seamless in this 21st century.
