Calling all doo-wop hooligans - Bruno Mars announces new autumn 2011 UK tour dates!

Posted: 12th July 2011

The rising star that is Bruno Mars continues to soar high above his contemporaries, not bad for a man who was facing a musical wasteland after a shallow spell with Motown Records a few years ago. Nowadays, he's bedded-in at the rival Atlantic corporation and clocking up hits and sell-out shows like the Beckhams rack up crazy Christian-names.

This year, Mars has been busy plugging his debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans", with headline shows (many of which sold out) and several festival slots including the iTunes Festival, T in the Park and V Festival. He's already got some shows earmarked for August - London on 16th (sold out) and 17th (still up for £25 though selling fast) plus Birmingham on 18th (sold out), then the two V Festival dates (Sunday in Staffordshire is sold-out, but there are still a few day tickets @ £83.50 for Saturday in Chelmsford), but now he's announced more shows for later this year.

First stop is once again in London, but this time at the Brixton Academy on 23rd October (£27.50), followed by Glasgow's SECC on 31st, then his first ever major show in Nottingham at the Capital FM Arena on 1st November and a return to Manchester on 2nd. Both of the latter shows cost £25 and all three will be available via Allgigs from Friday 9AM-onwards. Expect high demand.
