The duo – comprising Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak – will perform 13 concerts at the 5,200-capacity Dolby Live theatre between 25 February and 2 April. Pre-sale tickets are available from 6pm today, 19 January.
“The terms is locked and Vegas might not ever be the same Jack!!” .Paak wrote to announce the shows on social media. “You’re invited to the hottest show in sin city!”
Mars added: “Its happening! [sic] The sexiest party of the year! Them Silk Sonic Boyz are performing Live in Las Vegas!”
Dubbed as ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’, the run of dates will see .Paak and Mars showcase material from their debut album of the same name. It comes almost one year since the duo premiered the collaborative project at the Grammys 2021.
In a five-star review of their first record, NME wrote: “The songs are radiant and full of joy, formed from the synergy of two relentlessly creative minds.
“The album glows with appreciation for the simple but irreplaceable power of working alongside someone you trust and respect like no other — and it sounds as effortless and rewarding as an old friendship.”
Last month saw the album surpass one billion streams on Spotify, according to figures released by Chart Data. Their inaugural collaborative album An Evening With Silk Sonic was originally slated for release in January 2022, however, it arrived ahead of schedule on November 12.
The duo made their live debut at the 2021 Grammys with ‘Leave The Door Open’, before going on to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. They also opened the 2021 BET Soul Train Awards with two vintage-influenced live performances of ‘Fly As Me’ and ‘Smokin’ Out The Window’ at the Apollo Theater in New York.
Meanwhile, Silk Sonic are nominated in the International Group category at the BRIT Awards 2022, where they are up against ABBA, BTS, Måneskin and The War On Drugs.
