Macau kicked off the new year in style with a dazzling performance by 15-time Grammy Awards-winner Bruno Mars at MGM COTAI on January 6. The “24k magic in the air” set the tone for an extraordinary evening on the rooftop terrace, attracting both local residents and devoted “Hooligans” from around the globe. MGM, known for its commitment to providing top-notch non-gaming experiences, once again showcased Macau as the “World Center of Tourism and Leisure.”
Bruno Mars, the exceptionally talented musician and songwriter, illuminated the Macau skyline with his high-energy performance against the backdrop of MGM COTAI’s award-winning “jewelry box” architecture. The event not only marked a celebration of music but also served as a testament to Macau’s capacity to host world-class entertainment and performing arts, further solidifying its reputation as a global tourism and leisure hub.
The concert featured Mars’ signature blend of funk, hip-hop, and R&B, captivating the audience with hits like “Just the Way You Are,” “Locked Out of Heaven,” “That’s What I Like,” and “Uptown Funk.” These chart-topping songs not only showcase Mars’ musical prowess but also contribute to his remarkable list of achievements.
With Bruno Mars’ immense popularity, tickets for “The One & Only Night” became highly coveted worldwide, selling out rapidly after the box office opened in early December. The exclusive event attracted a star-studded audience, including Hong Kong-Canadian singer-songwriter Jay Fung, Hong Kong actress Nicola Cheung, Joey Thye, and more.
This one-night-only extravaganza marked the beginning of a novel outdoor music experience at MGM COTAI, solidifying its position as a venue for magnificent events in the coming year. As Macau continues to shine on the global stage, MGM remains dedicated to bringing world-class entertainment to the city, promising more unforgettable moments for residents and visitors alike.
