News of the primetime special first percolated this weekend, when Mars and his backing band the Hooligans performed atop the famed venue’s marquee.
The Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo special, which airs November 29th, will also feature the singer walking the streets of Harlem, “visiting, singing and entertaining locals in exciting, intimate, must-see moments,” the special promises.
The hour-long special will continue taping footage throughout the coming weeks, with “never-before-seen stage performances” also in store for viewers.
Mars serves as executive producer alongside Ben Winston on 24K Magic Live at the Apollo. “For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world,” Winston said in a statement. “To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”
