The second night of Bruno Mars' 24K Magic World Tour will take place tonight at the MOA Arena.


Bruno Mars incorporated Tagalog lines into his songs during his 2018 Manila concert held last night, May 3, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

This was during the first night of the Philippine leg of his 24K Magic World Tour, which was produced by MMI Live. 

After performing at jampacked venue, the Grammy award-winning singer performed at an after party held at the CHAOS Nightclub at City of Dreams Manila until the wee hours of the morning.

The second night of his sold-out concert will take place tonight at the MOA Arena.

Bruno Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, was born to a Filipina mom and a Puerto Rican dad in Honolulu, Hawaii.

At one point, Bruno Mars pretended to make a phone call as he said in his bedroom voice, "Hey, baby, I'm in Manila right now. I just called to tell you...Miss na kita, mahal."

His fans cheered as he sang it again and again with an accent: "Miss na kita, mahal."

Here's a snippet of his performance of his hit song "Locked Out of Heaven."



Bruno Mars kicked off his Manila concert by singing "Finesse" from his album 24K Magic.




Bruno Mars was accompanied by his band called The Hooligans.




Upon seeing concertgoers holding up their smartphones to document the event, Bruno Mars admitted, "I've never seen so many camera phones in my life."

He asked the crowd to put away their smartphones since he pointed out, "You can't dance if you're trying to get the shot." 




After singing the line "Miss na kita, mahal," Bruno Mars pretended to continue his phone call and asked his imaginary partner: "Baby, do you want me to beg in front of all these people? That's exactly what I'm gonna do."




The talented singer-songwriter brought out his guitar and impressed the audience with his skills in playing the instrument.




When the crowd became too focused on taking photos and videos, Bruno Mars told the crowd: "If you're going to be quiet tonight, we're going to be quiet too."

True enough, they cut the music and the performer danced even without any background music.
