Still riding the wave of success from his 2012 album "Unorthodox Jukebox," Bruno Mars has extended his Moonshine Jungle Tour into 2014 to include a stop at the legendary Hollywood Bowl. On May 31, the GRAMMY Award winner will touch down in Los Angeles to perform his first of two nights at this revered outdoor amphitheater. In addition to hearing chart-topping hits from Mars' catalog, attendees will be treated to an opening performance from esteemed producer Pharrell Williams.
