Bruno Mars w/Fitz & The Tantrums @ Philips Arena
“Treasure” is one of the biggest songs of the year. Every time its on the radio (which is basically all the time) we can’t help but break out in dance and belt out the lyrics along with Bruno Mars. His latest record, Unorthodox Jukebox, is an irresistible throwback to soul and disco. Plus the always-fun/soulful Fitz & The Tantrums will be opening for Bruno! This is a pairing that’s sure to get you out of your seat.
