Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak have announced Silk Sonic will be taking Sin City by storm later this year.
The pair announced a 13-date residency set to kick off at Las Vegas’s Dolby Live at Park MGM starting on Feb. 25. The last show scheduled (April 2) is one day before the 2022 Grammy Awards, which will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Bruno and Anderson as Silk Sonic are nominated in four categories, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Leave the Door Open.”
“It’s happening! The sexiest party of the year! Them Silk Sonic boys are performing Live In Vegas,” Bruno Mars wrote on Twitter. Anderson .Paak quickly followed suit, writing on Instagram, “THE TERMS ARE LOCKED AND VEGAS MIGHT NOT EVER BE THE SAME JACK!! YOU’RE INVITED TO THE HOTTEST SHOW IN SIN CITY!”
The duo dropped their debut An Evening With Silk Sonic back in November. The album featured Thundercat and Bootsy Collins, and grew organically after the two artists met while touring together.
“I was opening for him on the 24K Magic Tour back when we were doing Europe in 2017, and I was opening up for him for a couple months, and that was the first time I really seen him do his thing live, and I became an instant fan,” Anderson previously said in an interview with Hot 97. “After awhile, I got him in the studio, and we started working on some stuff in Europe and that was really the building blocks of starting Silk Sonic.”
