Bruno Mars' upcoming concert: 3 things we're looking forward to
MANILA, Philippines – Are you excited about Bruno Mars? We are, here in Rappler! The half-Filipino singer and two-time Grammy awardee has won the hearts of people worldwide with his sexy voice and catchy songs.
With his upcoming concert here in Manila as part of The Moonshine Jungle Tour, here are just a few things we are looking forward to leading up to the concert on March 22.
1. Incredible production value
Which is basically what we're all paying for to see the concert, right? However, we're practically dying to see him sing and dance to his retro-sounding hit "Treasure" and as well as his song that practically has a cult following – "Locked Out of Heaven." We're totally hoping for a concert that's as explosive as his Superbowl performance.

2. Help for Yolanda victims
A portion of his concert here in Manila's proceeds will be donated to rebuilding efforts for Yolanda victims. With the half-Filipino vocalist expected to draw in thousands of Filipino "brunofanatics" and concert enthusiasts, his much-awaited stop in Manila is part of his ongoing world tour to promote his second studio album, Unorthodox Jukebox. It will also act as a fund-raiser for our kababayans that were affected by the super typhoon late last year.
3. How he will interact with Filipino fans
Being half Filipino, Bruno Mars definitely knows how to charm a Filipino crowd. In his last concert in Manila, Bruno Mars even pointed to one girl from the crowd and sang for her!
Thinking of going to the concert on Saturday? Concerts do cost money and while most of us are willing to shell out a good portion of our salaries to watch Bruno Mars, nothing beats getting to see him for free. The good news is several establishments are giving away free tickets. One of them is the concert's official partner restaurant – Max's as well as SM Hypermarket.
Born Peter Gene Hernandez, Bruno Mars is a half-Filipino musician from the US. His Filipina mother who passed away last year was a former singer and hula dancer in Hawaii. She came back to Manila to watch her son's last concert here held in 2011. (READ: 7 things to Know about Bruno Mars)
