Bruno Mars among first acts to play MGM National Harbor

WASHINGTON — MGM Resorts International says it has signed a long-term relationship with four-time Grammy-Award winner Bruno Mars, who will headline one of the first performances at its National Harbor concert venue.

Mars is scheduled to perform at its 4,000-seat concert hall Dec. 27. Tickets are priced from $150 to $395 and go on sale Oct. 14. The National Harbor resort opens Dec. 8.

“MGM Resorts is thrilled to bring its mix of world-class hospitality and unrivaled entertainment to the East Coast,” said Bill Hornbuckle, president of MGM Resorts International. “With Bruno taking the stage as one of our first performers, we’ll show the region how MGM Resorts does entertainment.”

Mars also will perform in December at another new MGM property, with Dec. 30 and 31 concerts at the new Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Mars will return to the Park Theater March 12.

While MGM called the partnership with Mars a long-term relationship it did not say how often he might return to National Harbor.
