Bruno Mars will mark the end of his massive “24K Magic World Tour” by providing meals to 24,000 Hawaii residents in need for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Hawaiian-born singer announced Sunday he has donated money for the food to the Salvation Army’s Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division, which hosts an annual Thanksgiving meal program to help those in need.
Mars was set to perform the final show of his 200-date tour at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Sunday. It is his third consecutive night at the 50,000-seat venue.
The performer’s tour is in support of his multi-platinum 2016 album, “24K Magic.” It won six Grammy Awards earlier this year, including album, song and record of the year. The album includes the hits “That’s What I Like,” ”Finesse” and “24K Magic.”
Mars may not be cooking thousands of meals himself, but he is handy in the kitchen. “U know every now and then I turn the stove on & make myself a salami sandwich. I think it’s best if u all knew that.. Alright.. take care,” he wrote on Twitter earlier in November.

“We are humbled and honored by this generous donation from Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars,” Major Jeff Martin, divisional leader of the Salvation Army Hawaiian & Pacific Islands division told Hawaii News Now. “Bruno is a shining example of how people in Hawaii step forward and take care of one another and we are grateful to him for his aloha and kokua.”
The Hawaii native made the announcement after a three-night stint in Honolulu of sold-out shows, which broke Michael Jackson and U2’s records for two-night sellout shows in the same stadium. The tour was one for the books, with 200 tour dates across North America, the United Kingdom, Europe and Latin America.
