BRUNO MARS HAS ANNOUNCED his much-anticipated world tour … starting June 22 in Washington, D.C., and crossing North America to end Aug. 30 in Miami! San Juan, Puerto Rico, is next up Sept.1 before the “Moonshine Jungle” tour moves to Europe Oct. 2 in Belfast, Ireland, through Nov. 15 in Madrid, Spain. Tickets go on sale March 1 … No word yet on Bruno coming home to Hawaii to perform. Stay tuned …

Meanwhile, I got an excited call from Bruno’s dad, Pete Hernandez, now living in Hollywood. He’s collaborating with a top screenwriter on what could be a major movie: The Bruno Mars Story. Father of the Year? He should be. Pete’s four daughters – Jamie, Presley, Tahiti and Tiara - are now The Lylas, having signed with cable’s WE TV for a reality show scheduled to begin this spring. You can hear their new single Come Back on iTunes. Fun Fact: “Lylas” stands for “Love You Like a Sister.” For more, check this week’s cover story …
