As the saying goes, no news is good news. And that means that barring any last-minute changes, it looks like Thursday’s Bruno Mars concert in Fresno will go on as planned.
Fans of the five-time Grammy award winner freaked out earlier this week after finding out on Twitter that Mars canceled his Monday concert in Denver because of a severe sinus infection.
People worried that he may not be well enough to perform in Fresno. But SMG officials, who manage events at the Save Mart Center, are preparing for the show, including sending out a traffic advisory.
They expect heavy traffic in the Save Mart Center and Fresno State area from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
Bruno Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, tweeted Saturday that he had to call off his Monday concert in Denver because of a severe sinus infection.
“I hate canceling shows more than anything,” Mars wrote. “I hope you can forgive me and trust that we will do everything we can to reschedule and make it up to you.”
Mars said that he had the infection during his show Friday in Dallas, and that his performance might have made his infection worse.
Fresno’s Bruno Mars concert is the 46th of 52 shows dubbed the 24K Magic World Tour 2017 – North American Leg.
Mars last performed in Fresno in 2014, selling out the Save Mart Center.
Among Mars’ top hits are: “Uptown Funk” and “Just the Way You Are,” and more recently “That’s What I Like” and “Versace on the Floor.”
