Mars debuts

Art beat in April

Bruno Mars is giving his debut concert in China. The Grammy award-winner starred in a successful show at the Super Bowl, as the youngest-ever Super Bowl halftime performer. The Beijing and Shanghai concerts are part of his Moonshine Jungle tour. Mars hopes to give people an experience with the title. "With the jungle and the whole theme, we wanted to make it feel like you're stepping into something a little unpredictable. Unorthodox. And maybe a little dangerous," he says. "I only have two albums out and both albums only have 10 songs on it. So I basically do every single song in a concert."

8 pm, April 3. Mercedes-Benz Arena, 1200 Expo Dadao (Avenue), Pudong New Area, Shanghai. 021-5150-9199.

8 pm, April 5. MasterCard Center Beijing, 69 Fuxing Lu (Road), Haidian district Beijing. 4006-228-228.
