Before the clock struck midnight, GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and musician Bruno Mars and his band, The Hooligans, delivered an extraordinary performance to a sold-out crowd at The Chelsea. Concert-goers and notable guests alike including Halle Berry and Perez Hilton buzzed with excitement as the legendary artist ushered in the New Year with pop hits such as “Billionaire, “Treasure,” and “Marry You.”

As 2016 approached, Mars counted down with the energetic crowd and shouted “Happy New Year, Las Vegas” as confetti rained down. Mars then called for a toast and proclaimed, “There isn’t anywhere in the world I’d rather be than The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, happy New Year!” before closing the evening with a performance of “Uptown Funk” and “Just the Way You Are.”
