Nearly 10 months since he was last in town playing two nights at Staples Center, Bruno Mars has somehow managed to top that impressive feat. Between his continuous radio success and a lauded appearance on the Super Bowl halftime show, the former Elvis impersonator returns a bigger star than before while gracefully doing the evening's heavy lifting. When you have the star power Mars has, you can attract some of the biggest names as openers. For these shows, the Hawaiian is calling upon the resurgent Pharrell Williams (and his hat) to handle those duties. Fans undoubtedly would be thrilled to see these two superstars on their own, never mind on the same bill. Also Sunday, June 1.
