That's what I like! Singer Bruno Mars is coming to Australia, and one can book tickets as early as Friday, May 5. The Grammy-winning singer is bringing his 24K Magic World Tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2018, he said on Twitter.

The Hawaii-born singer will tour six cities on the Australasian leg of his 24K Magic World Tour, which kicks off Feb. 27, 2018, with the initial two shows happening at Auckland’s Spark Arena. The nine-date tour includes performances in the five biggest Australian cities, wrapping up on March 28 at the Perth Arena. Bruno Mars has gigs lined up for other Aussie cities including Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide. Check out the details below.

Mars last performed in Australia in 2014 for his Moonshine Jungle Tour. His current tour will support his latest release, “24K Magic LP,” which peaked at number three on Aussie charts and number 1 on the US Billboard charts after it was released on November 2016. The singer is continuing his chart-topping story following the previous success of “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” (No. 2 in January 2011) and “Unorthodox Jukebox" (No. 1 in January 2013).

Mars' latest song "That's What I Like" climbed from No. 3 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 13), becoming the star's seventh Hot 100 No. 1. The song comes from his latest album, which has only nine songs and is a little more than a half hour. “For me, there are so many different ways to write a song, and that’s a puzzle and a problem,” the 31-year-old told Evening Standard. “Do I know the right way to do it yet? No. I don’t have 18 good ideas. If I had 18 good ideas you’d get two albums."

The singer believes that he cannot write better songs that have already been written, but he tries his best to write songs that can compel people to come on the dance floor. Ticket sales for the 24K Magic World Tour 2018 start this Friday. Visit for more information. Meanwhile, check out the details for his upcoming tour in Australia and New Zealand below:
