Bruno Mars to headline next summer's Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park

There'll be 24K Magic in the air next July.

Pop pop, it's showtime, showtime, guess who's back again?!

Bruno Mars is returning to the UK next summer as one of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park's 2018 headliners.

The Hawaiian performer's 24K Magic World Tour is currently in full swing, and will end in May of next year after 172 shows across five continents. The global jaunt is in support of his Top 3 album 24K Magic, which spawned the US Number 1 single That's What I Like.

Bruno will headline the Saturday, July 14 show, while rising star Khalid, who currently has three songs in the Official Singles Chart Top 40, has also been confirmed for the bill. More names will be announced in the coming months.

"Bruno Mars is unquestionably one of the best live performers of his generation and we're incredibly excited to have him bring his full production magic to Hyde Park," said James King, Senior Vice President at AEG Presents, the festival's organisers.

Bruno is the second headliner announced so far for the festival next summer - Pink Floyd's Roger Waters will top the bill on Friday July 6. Should as many shows happen next year as did this year, another four headliners are still to be announced for events across the fortnight.

In 2017, Justin Bieber, Green Day, Phil Collins, The Killers, Kings of Leon and the late Tom Petty headlined BST Hyde Park, with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Blondie, Naughty Boy and Elbow also performing across the various line-ups.

Past headliners include Taylor Swift, Lionel Richie, Jennifer Lopez, Black Sabbath and Kylie Minogue.

Tickets will go on general sale this Friday (October 20) at 9am. Barclaycard customers can be pre-sale access from 9am today (October 17), and the Amazon pre-sale opens this Thursday (October 19).
