The 24K Magic World Tour celebrates Mars’ 2x RIAA Platinum-certified album, 24K Magic (http://smarturl.it/24kmagic), released in November 2016 via Atlantic Records. The 24K Magic World Tour has been Mars’ first full length tour since his hugely successful Moonshine Jungle World Tour in 2013, an international blockbuster that sold 2 million tickets worldwide across 155 sold-out dates. Mars most recently appeared on the 60th GRAMMY Awards for a show-stopping performance of his hit single “Finesse” with fellow chart topper Cardi B. Mars also swept the awards that night, taking home the seven GRAMMYs he was nominated for, including Album of the Year (24K Magic), Record of the Year (“24K Magic”), Song of the Year (“That’s What I Like”), Best R&B Performance (“That’s What I Like”), Best R&B Song (“That’s What I Like”), Best R&B Album (24K Magic), and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical (24K Magic). Mars’ 60th Annual GRAMMY wins make him only the tenth artist to win the “Big 3” (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year) in the same night, following Simon and Garfunkel, Eric Clapton, Norah Jones, and Adele.
