GIG REVIEW: Bruno Mars At YoYo's, London

Last week Thursday during his promo schedule, pint-sized singer/songwriter/music producer Bruno Mars performed his first UK show at the weekly music night at YoYo's at the Notting Hill Arts Club.

The charming artist opened his performance with the track 'Other Side', sans B.o.B and Cee-Lo, who feature on the track. He went on to sing 'Nothing On You', but created his own lyrics to the song to fill in for sections where B.o.B would rap which went down a treat.

Bruno changed the vibe up a bit by performing Jimi Hendrix's 'Fire', where we got to see his skills on the electric guitar. The crowd then sang along to Travie McCoy's 'Billionaire', where Bruno sang his heart out. To be honest you didn't even realize that Travie's lyrics were missing - Bruno Mars makes that track!

To end the night, Bruno finished off with his brand new debut single, 'Just The Way You Are', which had the ladies swaying in the crowd, hanging on to every lyric in the track. This was the perfect track to end the night.

Aside from the appalling sound system, which caused a bit of technical difficulty at the beginning of his set, Bruno didn't let the sound quality affect his performance at all. A good performance all round from Mr Hernandez.

I can't wait for him to return to London to perform at a bigger venue!
