Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air! So what better way to celebrate than going to see Mario live in concert? And better yet, tickets were only $10! Talk about a date night for the books.
Anyone who follows Mario knows he puts on a show, not only for the ladies but for music lovers all around the world. On Monday, February 14th, Mario kicked off the festivities by performing at the half-time show at the Warriors vs. Clippers game at Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as Staples Center. Hours later, he hopped on over to The Novo to shut down the stage and give Los Angeles the show they’ve been waiting for.
With the venue filled to the brim, Mario stepped out in a sleek, all-black fit, paired with dark shades to create the ultimate vibe. The stage setup was reminiscent of a sleek, sexy, elegant bar, with beautiful females to the left and right of him dancing in sync. He started the show with “Pretty Mouth Magick,” one of his more recent singles. His smooth buttery vocals were paired with a live guitarist on stage.
Of course, the real OG fans were hyped when Mario said he was taking it back to the classics, performing “Crying Out For Me” first as the crowd recited lyrics word for word. Soon after, Mario gave a speech on how he just went through the hardest time of his life with the love of his life, explaining what exactly love costs while reminding folks to love endlessly.
Soon after, he went into hit after hit: “How Do I Breathe,” “Break Up,” and our absolute favorite “Let Me Love You.”
