According to inquisitr.com, the sold-out show at the Brisbane Entertainment Center has been canceled, but fear not! The show has been rescheduled for March 13. Promoter Live Nation reportedly made the announcement on Thursday.
The Herald Sun reported that a spokeswoman for the promoter said that she did not know what illness struck Bruno Mars, but that the rest of his tour would go on as planned. The tour reportedly will start up again with a show in Sydney on Saturday.
Bruno Mars has been a constant presence in entertainment news since making his way back onto the Billboard 200 chart following his performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. According to an earlier report by The Inquisitr, the singer’s first album, Unorthodox Jukebox, sold between 70,000 and 80,000 copies in the seven days following the Super Bowl. “Doo-Wops & Hooligans also jumped several notches on the Billboard 200, selling an estimate 16,000 copies in the span of seven days.”
“Mars also conquered the iTunes chart following his appearance at the Super Bowl. His 2012 album occupied the number one position, while Doo-Wops & Hooligans landed at number three. The soundtrack to Disney’s animated hit Frozen found its way between the singer’s extremely popular records.”
