The Green will open Bruno Mars’ sold-out shows in Honolulu next month as the Grammy Award-winning artist kicks off the second leg of his eagerly anticipated blockbuster “Moonshine Jungle World Tour.”

The shows take place Friday, April 18, Saturday, April 19, and Monday, April 21, at the Neal Blaisdell Center Arena.

The local band says it’s “beyond stoked” to be the star’s opening act and rescheduled its original California appearances for May. All tickets will be honored.

The Green formed in 2009, blending elements of Hawaiian style with dub roots reggae. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year. The group’s sophomore album, Ways & Means, topped iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts, and the latest album, Hawaii ’13, charts a journey through Hawaiian life and music in 2013.
