Bruno Mars recently took to the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York for his first ever solo television special, Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo.

The hit-filled concert will air November 29th on CBS, executive produced by the “Uptown Funk” singer and Ben Winston, according to Variety.

The producer gushed over working with the Grammy-winning talent.

“For me, Bruno Mars is the greatest performer in the world. To be producing his first television special is a true honor. This will be a special show and a special night.”

As Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS, Jack Sussman shared, “Bruno Mars is the very definition of event television.

“He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history. We at CBS are proud to be broadcasting his first TV special.”

Bruno has often channeled Apollo legends during his stage performances, including James Brown, Sammy Davis Jr. and Michael Jackson.
