It’s party time!
Bruno Mars’ TV concert at the famed Apollo Theater is airing on CBS on Wednesday, Nov. 29.
Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live At the Apollo, debuts Wednesday on CBS at 10 p.m. Eastern. He recorded the special at the Apollo Theater in New York’s Harlem, performing the majority of his third album, “24K Magic.”
Mars is the first Filipino American to have his own concert special on U.S. television.
Last weekend, Bruno Mars cleaned up at the 2017 Soul Train Awards Sunday night, nearly sweeping the six categories in which he was nominated.

Mars took home awards for best R&B/soul male artist, video of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best dance performance.
Earlier this year, he won seven American Music Awards, including artist of the year. Mars picked up video of the year at the BET Awards, shared with Beyonce, and won his fifth Grammy Award earlier this year. His album 24K Magic reached double platinum.
He performed in the Apollo concert in the middle of his current tour so he and his musicians, his signature choreography are all on point.
Mars said he chose to film the one-hour special at the Apollo — which he calls “a magical place” — because of the venue’s rich history in music and pop culture.
“People are going to get the best that I got,” he said in a CBS interview.
