Bruno Mars' 24K Magic World Tour is the hottest ticket in North America, since Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour was canceled abruptly.
Tickets for Mars' tour went on sale Monday. According to Live Nation, Mars sold more than 1 million tickets in 24 hours.
Mars' third studio album, 24K Magic, was released on November 18 on Atlantic Records.
The 24K Magic World Tour kicks off in Europe on March 28, 2017 in Antwerp, Belgium. The North America leg of the tour follows on July 15, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. Additional shows may be added in select markets.
The 24K Magic Tour added 15 shows for a total of 100 dates, including 5 concerts in New York City, four nights at London's 02 Arena and 4 shows at the Forum in Los Angeles. Atlanta is not on the list.

Kanye West, who was involuntarily committed to a psyche ward in Los Angeles, had the hottest tour in the land before the Saint Pablo tour was canceled on Monday. Refunds were issued for the remaining 21 dates.
The troubled 39-year-old rapper earned over $1 million per night in excess of $30 million before his tour was canceled on Monday.
West and his promotor, Live Nation, left $30 million on the table. It is unclear if tour insurance will cover the loss.
There is speculation that the insurance carrier may not pay West or Live Nation if he failed to disclose his mental illness diagnosis beforehand.
That may explain why a non-psychiatrist house call doctor made the on-the-spot mental diagnosis rather than West's own psychiatrist -- if he even has one.
