Hundreds of people were left outside the Barclaycard Arena after self-printed tickets for the rear standing area failed to scan.
Hundreds of Bruno Mars fans were left “raging” after they were left locked out of his gig for several hours at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena this week, following a malfunction with the turnstiles.
Disgruntled fans, who had shelled out between £43 and £85 to see the American singer performing the first of two gigs in Birmingham on his 24K Magic World Tour on Monday (April 24th) and had queued for up to three hours already, were left fuming at several further hours’ worth of delays entering the venue because some tickets wouldn’t scan on the automated turnstiles correctly.

Seriously? These guys have never been named Sexiest Man Alive?
So Dwayne Johnson was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year; a decision that has been the source of both praise and confusion. Praise because he's an excellent role model with enormous muscles and because he's mixed race, and confusion because all the obvious choices haven't been exhausted yet.
Here are ten more Hollywood heartthrobs who deserve to be named 'Sexiest Man Alive' sooner rather than later.

His latest '24K Magic' track.
Bruno Mars has unveiled yet another tune from his eagerly anticipated third studio album '24K Magic' out this Fall. 'Versace On The Floor' is a romantic ballad that follows the release of the title track and 'Chunky', which he performed on 'Saturday Night Live' last month.
Bruno Mars unveils new track 'Versace On The Floor'
Recorded at Glenwood Place, Burbank, California, '24K Magic' has been in the works since Bruno completed his Moonshine Jungle Tour in 2014. He unveiled the title track in early October, his first single release in three years, and has apparently been hitting the studio with everyone from Mark Ronson and Jeff Bhasker to Skrillex and Andrew Wyatt. He's also been working with Grammy-winning songwriter and producer James Fauntleroy, as well as hip hop collective The Stereotypes.

In a radio interview on Tuesday, Mars said he was initially put off by Adele's attitude when they worked together for 'All I Ask'.
Nearing the end of a massively successful and lucrative tour supporting a similarly massive and lucrative album, Adele has the whole world in the palm of her hand at the moment.
However, one person didn’t quite think she was all she was cracked up to be – at least on first impression. Bruno Mars recalled that, when he worked with her while co-writing the song ‘All I Ask’ for her album 25, she was a “diva” – and not in a good way!

The accompanying album will hit shelves in November.
Bruno Mars is set to launch his third studio album '24K Magic' this Fall, and he's now unveiled the first single of the same name. Plus, he's due to make his first live appearance since the release this week and he'll appear on the small screen with a spot on 'Saturday Night Live' on Saturday week.
Bruno Mars unveils '24K Magic'
'24K Magic' is pronounced 'twenty-four karat magic' and follows his last solo single 'Young Girls'. The multi-Grammy Award winning superstar said of the release: 'You can call it my first single, but I call it the invitation to the party'.

Sometimes artists wear their influences on their sleeves.
Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.
Adele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single
The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.

If true, it would be the second time that the 'Uptown Funk!' singer has had the honour, following his performance in the 2014 edition.
Following his spot on one of the biggest pop hits of all time in the last 12 months, R&B / pop star Bruno Mars has apparently been asked by the NFL to perform during the Super Bowl half-time show for the second time in his career, according to reports by multiple media outlets.
Since he last took on the prestigious honour in 2014, Bruno has featured on Mark Ronson’s ginormo-hit ‘Uptown Funk!’, which has been almost certainly the biggest hit of the decade so far and spent an incredible 14 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. Insiders familiar with the situation are indicating on Wednesday (September 9th) that this extraordinary success has persuaded the NFL to extend their invitation for a second time.

It’s the first time the number of weekly streams has hit the half a billion mark and it’s is nearly double the number of songs streamed just a year ago.
Ed Sheeran is 2015’s most streamed artist so far.
The 505 million streams happened in the chart week ending July 16th and takes into account services such as Spotify, Deezer and Google. 2015 is said to have seen 11.5 billion streams to date, with more than 25 billion streams being predicted by the end of the year. According to The Guardian, when YouTube is included, the total is expected to top 50 billion.

Is this the first signs of the post-'Blurred Lines' legal ruling coming into effect?
The biggest selling single of the year so far has seen a significant change to its writing credits. Mark Ronson’s record-breaking ‘Uptown Funk!’ now includes the writers of The Gap Band’s 1979 hit ‘Oops Up Side Your Head’.
It’s not clear as to how this alteration came about – there have been no court cases or lawsuits in the offing – but five extra names are now included on Ronson’s hit, according to Music Week. They are The Gap Band’s three members Ronnie Wilson, Charles Wilson and Robert Wilson as well as producers Lonnie Simmons and Rudolph Taylor.

Bruno Mars collaboration marks his first chart-topper.
Mark Ronson is no stranger to the UK Singles Chart, but the surprising success of his collaborative hit with Bruno Mars, 'Uptown Funk', has seen him finally at number one - for a full seven consecutive weeks.
Mark Ronson is a UK Chart fix right now
The funk-infused single has gone multi-Platinum since its release in November 2014, and became the first release from his number one fourth album 'Uptown Special'; an album which also featured collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Andrew Wyatt, Jeff Bhasker and Mystikal. His previous most famous single was his cover of The Zutons' 'Valerie' with the late Amy Winehouse; a much loved hit that surprisingly only reached number two in the UK, though with a Platinum certification.

Lenny Kravitz will join Katy Perry when she performs at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Both the album and single charts are looking excessively loved up in the first week of the year.
This week in the UK Singles Chart, Mark Ronson held onto the top spot with his single Uptown Funk, featuring Bruno Mars. The catchy tune maintains its position for the third non-consecutive week, having set a streaming record with 2.5 million plays in its third week on top. The song’s combined sales reached a total of over 156,000, presumably enough to take Mr. Ronson’s future children through university.
Mark Ronson is in his third week of UK Chart domination, alongside funk champion Bruno Mars.
In second place this week, there’s a finally a newcomer – Phillip George, a 21-year-old DJ entered the chart with his debut single, Wish You Were mine. The loved up theme holds strong throughout the chart with Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud taking the third spot this week. So does that mean that people are extending their winter cuddle time past the holidays and into January? That’s the only logical explanation for all these ballads.
