Bruno Mars at Tao

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Bruno Mars played after-party host Saturday night at Tao in the Venetian after a sold-out concert at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade” crooner arrived on the red carpet in all black, save for a cheetah-print shirt, and sunglasses. Once inside the hotspot, DJ Politik announced Mars’ arrival.

The music superstar was joined by a group of friends at a VIP table on the dance floor, and he enjoyed cocktails and was seen dancing before making his way to the DJ booth. Mars hopped on the mic and performed his hit, “Locked Out of Heaven,” followed by “Bubble Butt.”

Afterward, he exited the DJ booth and returned to his friends at their table. Also at Tao on Saturday night: NBA star Roy Hibbert with friends at a VIP table.

Thanks to Al Powers of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery and Bill Cody for his video of the red carpet posted on YouTube. Check back later for a review of the concert by our colleagues at Las Vegas Weekly.
