Bruno Mars is ill and canceled one concert. His next show is in Fresno. Will he make it?

Headliner Bruno Mars is scheduled to perform Thursday at the Save Mart Center. But the status of the show remains up in the air after Mars tweeted that he had to cancel a showing Monday in Denver because of a sinus infection. No announcement has been made whether Mars will cancel his Fresno showing. Ticketmaster.com, however, still was selling tickets for the concert as of Tuesday evening.

Headliner Bruno Mars isn’t feeling well.

And he’s already been forced to cancel one concert from being sick.

Will the five-time Grammy Awards winner cancel his next concert, scheduled for Thursday in Fresno?

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 still performed but might’ve made his infection worse.

There has been no official word from the Mars camp or the Save Mart Center whether Thursday’s showing still is on.

But signs might indicate the concert remains a go.

Mars, one of pop music’s biggest stars, sent out two tweets Tuesday evening that were related to Halloween, and nothing about canceling more shows.

In addition, Ticketmaster.com still was selling tickets as of Tuesday night.

So was the Save Mart Center website, with tickets as low as $114. There was fine print at the bottom of the Save Mart Center website, though, that stated event information is subject to change without notice.

In comparison, though, Ticketmaster.com posted a cancellation notice for the Jay-Z concert that was scheduled Wednesday. And the Save Mart Center website immediately removed any links related to Jay-Z upon news of the rapper’s abrupt cancellation.

The Bruno Mars concert in Fresno initially was scheduled as the 46th of 52 shows as part of the 24K Magic World Tour 2017 – North American Leg.

Mars last performed in Fresno in 2014, then selling out the Save Mart Center.

He also played in Fresno as the opening spot on Maroon 5’s tour in 2010.

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.”
