    Concert Review: Bruno Mars

    By Camille Cannon

    Bruno Mars didn’t have to set up residency in Las Vegas. His last album, Unorthodox Jukebox, sold more than 1.8 million copies and his last Vegas concert took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Playing to an intimate room of 3,000 at the Chelsea—the capacity of our city’s newest music venue, housed in The Cosmopolitan—was just for fun.

    By Camille Cannon

    Not since her 2004 wedding and annulment has Miss Spears caused such a commotion in Las Vegas. Opening the same night as the Beacher’s Madhouse debut at MGM Grand (now with 100 percent more Miley Cyrus), Britney Spears’ two-year Piece of Me residency finally pops off on Friday. That’ll be one show down and 99 to go, Brit.

    Concert Review: Bruno Mars

    By Melinda Sheckells

    While I liked Bruno Mars going in, I emerged a fan. The first thing that is noticeably refreshing about Mars (a.k.a. Peter Hernandez) is that he’s still happy to be “here,” and it shows in his performance. The one-hour, 45-minute show started on time and was without pretense. He sang, played guitar and drums and threw in a bit of humor between sets. Mars fronts a band of horn players that complement his blues-jazz-R&B-pop blend. With his two-album career arsenal of hits, Mars is the Prince of the new generation.

    Stars bling at jewelry party

    By Jason Scavone

    With the JCK Las Vegas jewelry convention in town, Las Vegas was like a bright shining beacon for high-society con men, Ocean’s 11-style heist teams, cat burglars and David Niven circa 1963. Along with all that (and how disappointing is it that not one safe was cracked all weekend?), loads of celebs came to get the early look at what they’ll be loaned to wear on red carpets and at awards shows in the coming year.

    No Iron Bar Hilton for Mars

    Singer Bruno Mars—born Peter Hernandez—will duck jail time stemming from a Sept. 19 arrest for possession of cocaine.
