Bruno Mars has been around the world with the “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” world tour. He has sold out venues everywhere from France to Australia and he won his very first Grammy award along the way. The tour even brought him the the Philippines.
During Bruno’s very first time visiting the homeland of his mother, he performed for his adoring Filipino fans including a sold out audience of over 10,000 in the famed Araneta Coliseum. (Supporting act for Bruno in the Philippines was fellow Filipino-American and friend of the Open the Light Project, Michael Copon) The Doo-Wop & Hooligans tour is winding down, however it does not mean that one of the hardest working crooners in the industry is going to stop and take a breather anytime soon.
