"Bruno is among the most talented performers in the world and we are excited to start a long-term relationship with him across our industry-leading portfolio of entertainment venues," said Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International.  "There is no stronger launching pad for a new venue than for Bruno Mars to be among the first to grace its stage, and we get to do it twice, an amazing beginning to a multi-year partnership."

The new 5,300-seat Park Theater, with its state-of-the-art audio and visual technology, will provide artists an exclusive space to create one-of-a-kind productions where every seat allows guests to feel up close and personal.

Park Theater is the first step in the recently announced reimagination of Monte Carlo. The transformation, taking place over the next two years, will include two distinct hotel experiences – a Las Vegas version of the Sydell Group's famed NoMad Hotel and the launch of a new luxury hotel named Park MGM. Each hotel will feature fully redesigned hotel guest rooms and innovative food & beverage offerings, highlighted by Eataly, a vibrant Italian marketplace with cafes, to-go counters and full-service restaurants interspersed with high-quality products from sustainable Italian and local producers.


Mars will host a special engagement Tuesday, Dec. 27 at The Theater at MGM National Harbor.  He will be one of the venue's first performers, setting the tone for the level of A-list entertainment to be expected at the stunning new resort scheduled to open Thursday, Dec. 8.

Tickets for the show range from $150 to $395, not including applicable service charges, and go on sale Friday, Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. EST.  Ticket sales are limited to eight (8) per person.  Tickets can be purchased online at or  For more show and ticket information, visit

Hornbuckle added, "MGM Resorts is thrilled to bring its mix of world-class hospitality and unrivaled entertainment to the east coast.  This resort casino is destined to become a must-visit destination for locals and visitors to the region alike. With Bruno taking the stage as one of our first performers, we'll show the region how MGM Resorts does entertainment."

MGM National Harbor, a $1.4 billion resort on the shore of the Potomac River in Maryland, will offer luxurious accommodations, an unrivaled culinary program and world-class entertainment in The Theater, which can accommodate 3,000 guests for reserved-seating events and just over 4,000 for general admission shows.

Mars released his newest single "24K Magic" on Friday, Oct. 7.
