The rumours were true: Bruno Mars is officially coming to New Zealand.

Rumours have been rife in the past few days after tour promoters Live Nation hinted about the upcoming tour in a social media post, uploading a video promoting Mars' world tour with the message "stay tuned".

Now they've confirmed Mars will be in New Zealand next February with his 24K Magic World Tour.

The Uptown Funk superstar has clocked up five Grammy Awards, the No 1 spot on Forbes' list of top 30 people under 30 and an RIANZ No 1. His latest album 24K Magic has won critical acclaim and been a massive hit with fans.

Last time he was here in 2014, he sold out two arena shows, and now he's back for two more at Auckland's Spark Arena (formerly Vector Arena) on February 27 and 28.
