Bruno Mars is preparing to launch his extensive “Moonshine Jungle World Tour,” which will include an Aug. 10 show at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The five-month-long arena trek will be the pop-rock star’s most expansive headlining tour to date, according to Billboard. The tour kicks off on June 22 in Washington, D.C.

Ellie Goulding will be the special guest for the Chesapeake Energy Arena show. Tickets for the Oklahoma City concert will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 1, the venue announced today.

Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster locations and by phone at (800) 745-3000.

The tour will support Mars’ new album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,” which he released in December.

According to Billboard, Mars’ tour announcement follows news of “Unorthodox Jukebox” making a 112 percent leap in sales on the Billboard 200 this week, following the singer-songwriter’s performance on the Grammy Awards alongside Sting, Rihanna, Ziggy Marley and Damien Marley. The album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 upon its December release, flies from No. 8 to No. 3 on this week’s chart.

Meanwhile, Mars has two singles in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. After spending six weeks at No. 1, “Locked Out of Heaven” remained at No. 2 on last week’s tally, while “When I Was Your Man” leapt from No. 22 to No. 9.
