Bruno Mars announced that Ciara, Boyz II Men, Charlie Wilson and Ella Mai will serve as openers during the final leg of his 24K Magic tour. Cardi B was originally scheduled to support Mars throughout the trek, but she pulled out to spend more time with her new daughter, Kulture.

Mars announced the new openers in a cheeky Instagram video where he showed off his amateur Photoshop skills. The pop star provided exuberant narration as he dragged photos of each artist onto his computer screen, belting a few lines from their songs as well.

Ciara, Boyz II Men, Wilson and Mai will join Mars at various points throughout the 24K Magic trek. The tour launches September 7th and 8th in Denver, Colorado and wraps with a three night stand in Honolulu, Hawaii, November 8th, 10th and 11th (those last shows will feature the Green and Common Kings).

Cardi B announced her decision to drop off Mars’ 24K Magic tour at the end of July. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” the rapper said. “I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think that I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”

Mars voiced his support for the rapper – who anchored the remix of his track “Finesse” – writing, “You are absolutely doing the right thing. I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right.”
