The tour will kick off on April 18th with two nights in Mars' hometown of Honolulu, after which it will pick back up again in late May. Pharrell will appear at the tour's New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal dates. Blacc will be Mars' special guest at all of the other dates between May 27th and July 20th.

In and around his Moonshine Jungle tour, Mars is also playing special shows in February, May and August at the Chelsea in Las Vegas' Cosmopolitan hotel. Support artists for those dates, as well as the Honolulu shows, have not yet been confirmed.

One special guest that Mars has confirmed, however, is the band that will be joining him during his Super Bowl halftime performance: Red Hot Chili Peppers. In addition to playing with Mars, the veteran rockers will also headline a pre-Super Bowl show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on February 1st.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
