MANILA – Filipino-American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars arrived in Manila at dawn on Friday.

Mars arrived on board a 12-seater private plane at Terminal 1 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport at 4:20 a.m.

He was whisked out of the airport by a convoy of vehicles parked beside the plane.

The singer is scheduled to hold a concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday (March 22) as part of his “Moonshine Jungle” tour.
