Thanks to my good friend, JC, from the bay, I was lucky to see Bruno Mars on his Moonshine Jungle Tour at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. I was quite impressed with how fabulous Bruno Mars was live and since this was my first time seeing him live, I had no expectations. I actually knew more of his songs than I thought I would and he put on a spectacular show with not one, but six hypemen behind him. They, including Bruno Mars, all wore flashy red suits with leopard print tank tops and gold chains. The show was full of energy, pyrotechnics, shots of tropical birds, glitter and animal sounds.
I was definitely enjoying the show, but Bruno took it to another level when he was performing “Our First Time” from his Doo-Wops & Hooligans album and remixed it with some 90s classics like Ginuwine’s “Pony”, GhostTown DJs’ “My Boo”, Soul for Real’s “Candy Rain” and Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat”. All of these songs have either been featured on MMJotW or should be soon! All of my fave jams!
Like most concerts, Bruno returned for an encore and played “Locked out of Heaven” and “Gorilla”. “Gorilla” was highlighted with green lighting, flames, an animated film of palm trees and a spotlight on Bruno. It’s quite a powerful and sexy song. Check it out!
