The popular American singer Bruno Mars on Sunday performed at the Dinamo Arena stadium in the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi as part of Starring Georgia, a series of shows promoting the country's tourism potential and showcasing it on the map of entertainment events around the world. 

A memorable moment of the performance came with a rendition of Tbiliso, a song by the popular late Georgian composer Revaz Lagidze, on the stage of the show.

Maia Omiadze, the Head of the Georgian National Tourism Administration, said about 70,000 music enthusiasts were hosted for the show at the venue.
