Mars spoke to the NY Post and when asked about the performance he said matter of factly, “We were just out, making music and singing.” He then continued on to tell of some of the New Yorkers unexpected reactions, “but we definitely had a couple of people who would hang out of their doors and tell us basically to shut up.”
New York is a tough crowd to win over!
While Bruno has a ton of accolades to his name with constant successes all around, he couldn’t help but feel nervous about the Apollo crowd. The crowd has been notorious for being brutal at the New York legendary theater. They have collectively booed off many hopefuls since 1934. “If you don’t go up there and try to kill it, the audience is gonna kill you,” said Mars to the New York Post.
