The 11-time Grammy winning American singer, songwriter and record producer Bruno Mars brought ‘24K Magic’ to the capital as he performed an unforgettable New Year’s Eve concert.

Bruno Mars struck several chords at the du Arena, Yas Island, as part of Resolution by Night, presented by du Live in collaboration with the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) and Miral Asset Management.

The music maestro began his mesmerising performance with the Grammy winning record “24K Magic”, as his powerful vocals and trademark dance moves blew the crowds away. With special effects including a laser show, confetti canons and flame machines, Mars brought finesse together with his band, the Hooligans as thousands of cheering fans sang and danced along to his smash hit singles including “Treasure”, “Versace on the Floor”, “Uptown Funk”, “Perm” and “That’s What I Like”. As the showman thanked the capital for spending the last minutes of the decade with him, he took the spectators down the memory lane with an exceptional vocal display of some of his most memorable songs over the last decade including “Nothin’ On You”, “It Will Rain” and “When I Was Your Man”.

As the opening chords of “Just the Way You Are” began to play, the audience counted down to midnight, with Bruno Mars’ extraordinary voice joining a spectacular firework display for a breath-taking New Year’s memory that concert goers and music aficionados would never forget.

The celebrations will continue at du Arena tomorrow with Resolution by Day; an action-packed all-ages festival for all entertainment-seekers to enjoy.
