Bruno Mars will be performing at the National Stadium on Apr. 3, 5 and 6, 2024.

There's a lot to know about attending these shows, so we're breaking down the specific guidelines for you to have a stress-free time at his concert.

Pack light

Less is more when it comes to concerts these days.

We all know how long the lines will take to get your bag checked before you even enter the venue.

Pro tip: There may be an express queue for bagless people, so skip the bag to skip the line.

If not, remember to pack light so that your bag check goes as smoothly as possible.

Here's a list of items that are not allowed in the venue:

  • Cameras, video cameras, zoom lenses, GoPros
  • Selfie sticks, tripods, monopods, Gimbals
  • Tablets and iPads
  • Food and drink from outside the stadium
  • Non-collapsible umbrellas
  • Fan signs exceeding A3 in size

And here's a list of items that would be good to bring:

  • Water bottles, but no cans, glass and metal water bottles. Remember to empty them before entering the venue and refill them at the water coolers located within the stadium.
  • Portable phone chargers
  • Raincoat

Get your e-tickets ready

Of course, you can't forget to bring the most important thing that will get you into the stadium: Your tickets.

The organisers specify that you should not save your tickets as a screenshot or an image.

Instead, you're encouraged to download a PDF version onto your phone.

If you're collecting physical tickets, you can do so at the Kallang Wave Mall Box Office on concert days from 2:30pm to 9pm.

Should any disputes arise, you can meet the venue staff at the information counters at Gates 6 and 18 for ticket resolution queries.

  • Gates 1, 3, 4 and 5: Stadium Roar (near Stadium MRT Exit A)
