In September of 2015 Bruno Mars fans celebrated the revelation that he and his “band of merry men” (the Hooligans) would be involved in another Super Bowl Halftime Show. After all, the then-record breaking February 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII performance that brought back seminal Rock/Funk act The Red Hot Chili Peppers resulted in the generation of millions more fans and a surge in ticket sales for the Moonshine Jungle World Tour, which ran from June 2013 to October 2014.

The arena darkens; a curtain featuring majestic palms is illuminated with pulsating lights, and a disembodied voice states, “Welcome to the Moonshine…. Jungle!” As blue lights glow, a rhythmic mélange comes to the aural foreground, and then… Bang! The curtain FALLS to an oceanic wave of emotion and cheers. Tens of thousands are about to be possessed deep in the heart of la jungla (the jungle). Bruno Mars and his Hooligans Band are poised to slay relentlessly, without mercy.
This is the Moonshine Jungle World Tour (MJWT)/Moonshine Jungle Tour (MJT). From June 22, 2013 to October 14, 2014, a musical juggernaut plows through Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania, leaving audiences ecstatically exhilarated and transformed.
