POP/R&B Bruno Mars 3Arena Dublin 8pm, Also Sun ¤92/¤72/¤45.05 tick­et­mas­ Honolulu-born Peter Gene Her­nan­dez (aka Bruno Mars, right), one of the world’s best-sell­ing solo artists, is a born en­ter­tainer, so if you’re look­ing for full-blown retro raz­za­matazz – with a wide va­ri­ety of mu­sic styles – then here’s the gig for you. More in­ter­est­ing for some, per­haps, is the sub­lime sup­port act An­der­son.Paak, who af­ter his Sun­day slot will play a brief live set at Dublin’s Academy. Paak and a few mu­si­cian friends will, we are told, play a min­i­mum of three songs with the pos­si­bil­ity of more. Would you risk that for ¤26? You never know who might show up.

JC NEW BLOOD Cúig The Dock, Car­rick on Shan­non 8.30pm ¤16/¤14 This five piece band, with mem­bers from Ar­magh and Ty­rone, are tear­ing up the rule book with their bold ap­proach to the tra­di­tion. With a fiery rep­u­ta­tion for humdinger live per­for­mances, Cúig do a fine trade in tak­ing no pris­on­ers and re­defin­ing the con­tours of the tra­di­tion. Ev­ery genre needs its young turks, and Cúig look like they may be ready to take up that man­tle. SL
