You could say that Bruno Mars was born to be a pop star. Raised in a family of musicians in Hawaii, he first gained notice as a child Elvis impersonator in the 1992 movie “Honeymoon in Vegas,” going on to hone a style sharing space alongside Prince and Michael Jackson on the borderline between pop and soul. He has also developed a reputation as one of the finest showmen on the road today, a live act he’ll bring to Raleigh’s PNC Arena on Saturday. Aloe Blacc opens the show at 8 p.m. and tickets are $51.30-$115.41. See thepncarena.com for details.
