Unstoppable hit-making machine Bruno Mars has just been announced as the second headliner for Barclaycard’s British Summertime show in London’s Hyde Park, and will perform on Saturday 14 July next year. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now here.

The multi-platinum artist, famous for global smash hits including ‘That’s What I like’, ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘Just The Way You Are’, will have just finished his gigantic 172-date world tour supporting his latest double-platinum LP ’24K Magic.’

Back in April he played four critically-acclaimed shows at London’s 02 Arena.

Mars’ breakthrough ballad in 2010 ‘Just The Way You Are’ set the tone for his stellar career, owning the record for longest-reigning debut single to stay at the top spot worldwide. Cheeky pop number ‘The Lazy Song’ made the top five, and has remained a global radio staple. ‘Marry You’ is a go-to soundtrack for viral marriage proposal videos to this day.

In 2014 Mars became the first artist under 30 to headline the Superbowl halftime show, with a dazzling Prince-esque set that won him admirers around the world.

Storming mega-hit ‘Uptown Funk’, a collaboration with Mark Ronson, topped the global charts and is the fifth most watched video on YouTube with more than 2.5 billion views.

Earlier this month it was announced that former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters is headlining Barclaycard British Summertime the day before on Friday, July 13.
