Pop superstar Bruno Mars quietly slipped into Manila today for his concert tomorrow night, March 22, at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City.

The 28-year-old Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, along with his band and crew, is billeted in Solaire Resort and Casino, a short distance from the MOA Arena.


Tickets to the concert have sold out a few weeks ago, according to SM Tickets. But those still hoping to buy one may get in touch with this number, 0917-833-4223. The contact says there are still a few remaining tickets in the following sections: Special VIP (P21,710); Lower Box A (P9,040); and Lower Box Standing (P6,930).

Mars, born Peter Gene Hernandez in Honolulu, grew up in a family of musicians led by his father, Peter Hernandez, a Puerto Rican from Brooklyn, New York. His mother, Bernadette “Bernie” San Pedro Bayot, was born in Manila.


In a past interview with Inquirer Lifestyle, published only last March 12, Bayot, who was very close with her son, was quoted by writer Tatin Yang: “I knew he was special the day he was born.”

The same article mentioned: “In June last year, Bernie unexpectedly died of a brain aneurysm; she was only 55. When Bruno received another Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for “Unorthodox Jukebox” two months ago, he dedicated his win to his mom: Ma, I know you’re watching, I hope you’re smiling, I love you.”
