Bruno Mars & Maroon 5 Leave Las Vegas With Their Biggest New Year’s Eve Jackpots Yet


After wrapping his two-year 24Okay Magic Tour in Hawaii final November, Bruno Mars ended the yr on prime with a two-night stint on the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He leads the Hot Tours recap (see beneath) dated Jan. 26, 2019, grossing $5.9 million from 30,241 tickets on Dec. 30-31, based on figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

It’s his fourth consecutive yr spending New Year’s Eve in Sin City. After closing out 2015 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan, Mars spent 2016 and 2017 at The Park Theater earlier than graduating to the T-Mobile Arena on the finish of 2018. The Grammy-winning chart-topper leveled up by making an enormous 114 p.c improve over final yr’s $2.7 million gross and 10,292 attendance rely.

Similarly, Maroon 5 returned to Vegas for New Year’s Eve, ringing in 2019 at Mandalay Bay Events Center for the third consecutive yr. On Dec. 30-31, 2018, they grossed $2.three million, up four p.c from final yr. While this yr’s 15,463 tickets bought is sufficient to be their best-attended NYE stint, the $2.7 million grossed in 2016 stays their most profitable two-night Vegas engagement.

Late 2018 MGM concert events dominate this week’s tally, with Anita Baker at No. 6 from three exhibits at The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md. There, she grossed $1.three million on Dec. 26, 28-29, promoting out all three performances at eight,271 tickets. These exhibits characterize Baker’s greatest engagement in additional than 20 years, since her five-night run at New York’s Radio City Music Hall in 1995 ($1.eight million; 28,285 tickets bought).
