Bruno Mars Eyes Cardi B Replacement For Sold-Out Tour

Published: Sunday 29th Jul 2018 by David

Cardi B‘s last-minute decision to pull out of Bruno Mars‘ ‘24k Magic Tour’ to take care of her first baby has forced the ‘Grenade’ throwing chart-topper to seek a replacement!

Full story below….

Sources close to TMZ claim Bruno was blindsided by Cardi’s departure and is frantically looking for a replacement…and an economic way to handle the costumes, stage backdrops and dancers hired to support her.

We’re told Bruno’s people were burning up the phones Friday … starting conversations with reps from a number of musicians but nothing is close to being locked down.


I know the fans will understand. You are absolutely doing the right thing. I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play ‘Bodak Yellow’ every night in your honor. Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on The 24K Magic Tour.”

Who do you think he should call?

    Little Mix

    • Xavier Woods July 29, 2018

      Beyoncé would be great if Bruno lets her open for him!
      Is a huge opportunity to expand her dying career to a whole new generation.

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? July 29, 2018

        If memory serves me correctly… it was bruno mars that opened for Bey at this years coachella. and why would bey open for an ARENA tour, some of his shows are at 5k capacity THEATERS. I see why cardi declined, better off touring WITH and not for Migos. ?

      • Theresa S July 30, 2018

        Yup Xavier. This would be a great gig for her and she’ll be able to show herself to a younger audience than her habitual one. It’ll be great for her. But I think she’s still in the middle of that tour with her husband (unfortunately). And with the time passing by it wouldn’t be time for all the rehearsals. She likes shows with lots of special effects and a whole bunch of dancers, back up singers, musicians and all that and Bruno is a more simple performer than that (he’s amazing, all the show is him and his music nothing more ?). Only for that reason I can’t imagine he’ll think about her, it’s sad she’s letting this huge opportunity go. Maybe in a few years she accepts opening for him or Ed to meet a younger public.

    KELLY ROWLAND here’s your chance girl!

    • Ispeakfacts July 29, 2018

      This would be great to expand her audience but she has no new music out! Hopefully she drops something in August or early September bcuz I really want her to do black girls rock this again which comes in September… I’m hoping for a bigger & better solo tour she promised fans as well…

    • jammy July 30, 2018

      YES for Normani, although this would be too soon for her since all she has out is Love Lies lol

  5. MessyBoots July 29, 2018

    The one & only Ciara #LevelUp

  6. AnonymousTruth July 29, 2018

    I was thinking Ciara also…

    Makes me kinda sad that she is on album number ??? And can’t headline an arena tour though.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 29, 2018

      I dont think Ciara would open again. She is looking for her own solo tour and it is time she headline. Openig again is a step backwards for her

      • Caleb July 29, 2018

        Well she’s definitely at a point in her career where this would be a great gig for her.

    • Faf July 29, 2018

      Ciara hasn’t ever toured solo no girls from that time did. Ashanti didn’t nor Amerie

      She always did the scream tours because the 00s were about comradeship vs stanning individuals

      So now that she’s back she’s done shows but never full concerts ??‍♂️

      • Tori July 29, 2018

        Ciara just toured 2015-16…The Jackie Tour?…And she toured during The Evolution…

      • DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? July 29, 2018


        the Jackie tour does NOT count. it was just a THEATERs tour lol on top of that didnt even SELL OUT to crowds of only 3,500 im guessing. how many ppl do theaters hold?

  7. ROCK July 29, 2018

    Dummy B is not cut out for this industry.

    • The Wig Snatcher July 29, 2018

      She blew it.

      • Yolanda July 29, 2018

        In the words of P.Diddy, “Somebody is always looking to take your place.” Cardi thinks she is so big that she can take a break. Why you think Beyonce and Rihanna stays in the spotlight. Taking a break in this industry is suicide. Nicki took a break-and Cardi slipped in.

    • whhhewchil123 July 30, 2018

      I couldn’t agree more…there’s 0 wrong with having a child but she shouldn’t be taking breaks whilst she is at the top of the game…breaks occur before signing the major deal once u have the major deal u must be ready for a 10 year consistent commitment.
      For instance look at jlo she launched her debut album at 30 then she was committed for 8 consistent years before having kids at 38 then immediately, came with new music 0 breaks. There are 0 career breaks for successful people. She is a millionaire, she could have hired 2 nannies & a chef to go on tour with her which would cost 25% of the money she wasted on the lambo she just bought… she is dumb & will go broke within 5 years…Atlantic r a hot mess is this the best person they could find? Nicki that sacrificed everything for this n u think she can just go down like that dumb idiots atlantic… she is a typical statistic who got lucky

      • whhhewchil123 July 30, 2018

        Alsooo… i hope she had the sense to lease that lambo coz 300k on a car is beyond stuppppid…..she could lease a different lambo from time-time just to flex no need to own one.. its a complete waste

  8. Chell July 29, 2018


  9. Seth July 29, 2018

    Ciara or Kelly Rowland would be great

  10. DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? July 29, 2018

    lmao. the audacity to even mention C ERROR. c wuld get STAGE FRIGHT. lol not used to Arena, only THEATERS like StrainTina?…… didnt even SELL OUT to crowds of only 3,500 im guessing. how many ppl do theaters hold?

    i bet the jackie tour only grossed $1.3 million at best ?

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? July 29, 2018

      lol forgive this post… upon doing my research i guessed numbers that were wayyyy too high.

      Divide my numbers by atleast 3. ?

  11. ChrisFresh July 29, 2018

    HOW about Sza

  12. Jackx July 29, 2018

    get Rita ora

  13. Latinissima July 29, 2018

    Ciara would be great but I doubt Bruno’s team are thinking of her ’cause “Level Up” is too recent and there’s no sign of the album yet.

  14. Ann July 29, 2018

    Tori Kelly would be a great replacement, Pink, Christinia Aguilera, Rita Ora, Boys to Men they would be great also ok Bruno do a good job picking people who know how to entertain and can sing and dance. Good Luck !! Remember to pick someone who is a true entertainer like you pop songs slow songs etc……. waiting in suspense for this choice. Bruno you can think of somebody how about Charlie Wilson? That would be great addition bring back some old tunes.

    • Caleb July 29, 2018

      Pink?? She has a huge tour of her own why would she open? Lol

  15. Alex July 29, 2018

    Azealia Banks is the only one that comes to mind. As far as whose hot, there won’t be a replacement for Cardi B that also fits bruno’s Fan base.

    I really hope Cardi bailed because something much bigger is in store. This doesn’t make sense. But I think Cardi is bigger than opening for Bruno now.

  16. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY/STREAM “Throw A Fit” Now Available Everywhere) July 30, 2018

    Sources are saying Tinashe got it!!!

  17. Bravo!! July 30, 2018

    I’m sure Cardi already told Bruno no to Nicki Minaj. That really the only person I can think of. Nicki should be calling Bruno to be on the tour. She needs to put her pride to the side and perform records from her upcoming album. Nicki need to promo and this will be a good opportunity for her album.

    • Bravo!! July 30, 2018

      I forgot all about Ciara. Would also be good promo for as well.

    • Musika July 30, 2018

      Nicki’s too big of a name now though and probably on the same level as Bruno. Normally they get a rising artist to be opening acts. Earlier this year it was Dua Lipa who opened. I reckon they should go for Stefflon Don.

  18. MusicLife July 30, 2018

    Iggy Azalea would be a good choice since sold out apparently and also she had big pop hits around time bruno was out so yeah. Plus not in place to headline own tour, perfect!

  19. whhhewchil123 July 30, 2018

    Perhaps Jorja Smith could do it or Ella Mai …or HER i THINk HER may be a tad bit too mid tempo but nonetheless she would bee good

  20. Musika July 30, 2018

    It has to be a rising female R&B hip-hop star who sings AND raps well enough to fill in for Carbi B’s shoes. Stefflon Don comes to mind.

  21. Yan July 30, 2018

    I think Tinashe would be a good fit, and God knows she needs it.

  22. truthteller July 30, 2018

    I laughed at the deluded Brits who suggested Little Mix or Rita Ora. The very idea that he would go from Cardi B to nobodies in the US

  23. Yolanda July 30, 2018

    How about Post Malone?

  24. Donna August 4, 2018

    I would love it if he would get Charlie Puth to go on tour with him, if he’s available.

  25. Henry December 3, 2018

    Who ended up doing it?
