Bruno Mars turned out to be the most anticipated guest at the 2011 "Today" summer concert series so far. The Doo-Wops singer has drawn a huge crowd at the free gig with more than 2,000 fans arriving early on Friday morning, June 24 to watch his live performances at the Big Apple.
It's the "biggest crowd of the year" for the "Today" show concert series, host Ann Curry proclaimed. Some of those coming to the concert even camped around the Plaza at Rockefeller Center on the previous night. And the "Grenade" crooner didn't disappoint them by showing up as scheduled despite misty weather.
The Grammy-winning singer performed such tracks as "Runaway Baby" and "Just the Way You Are", which all are taken from his critically-acclaimed debut album "Doo - Wops & Hooligans". Looking dapper in a black Dolce & Gabbana suit, he kicked off his set with toe-tapping "The Lazy Song".
