The “The Moonshine Jungle World Tour” announcement comes just as “When I Was Your Man”, the latest single from Mars’ just-released sophomore album, “Unorthodox Jukebox“, exploded into the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” where it joins the album’s blockbuster first single, “Locked Out Of Heaven“, which recently spent six consecutive weeks atop the “Hot 100” chart.
Remember that one time when Bruno Mars’ “Unorthodox Jukebox” was officially launched in Malaysia and our friends from Warner Music Malaysia planned this awesome flash mob right smack in the heart of Kuala Lumpur?:

Since then, the album has made a stunning SoundScan/Billboard 200 debut upon its release, entering the chart at #2 with sales in excess of 192,000. It’s Bruno Mars’ highest first week sales debut thus far. And let’s not forget his breathtaking performance during the 55th Annual Grammy Awards fronting an all-star tribute to Bob Marley alongside the likes of Sting and Rihanna.
The performance also marked the Grammy-winner’s third consecutive year to perform on the acclaimed show.
Special guests on select dates of the North American leg include Ellie Goulding and newly signed Elektra artist Fitz & The Tantrums. Tickets for select North American dates and all European dates and will go on-sale 1st March. Our question is, where to after the European dates, Bruno? Is Asia anywhere on that “The Moonshine Jungle Tour” schedule?
