Who'll be joining Bruno on tour?

Bruno Mars has announced which acts will be supporting him on his 24K Magic World Tour.

The Grammy Award-winner was originally scheduled to be accompanied by Cardi B during the final leg of the mammoth tour, before she pulled out following the birth of her daughter, Kulture Kiari.

Mars revealed the news with a hilarious self-made video, demonstrating his questionable Photoshop skills by revealing each act with a photo dragged onto the screen.

The singer also proved ad-libs of a song from each act after writing "I was trying really hard to make a cool tour poster once we got confirmation on who's joining us on the finale of the 24K Magic Tour,"

"But in my excitement I forgot I suck at arts and crafts." Watch the video for the big reveal below.

Mars will now be joined by Ciara, Ella Mai, Charlie Wilson and Boyz II Men at various spots during the tour, which kicks off on 7th September in Denver, Colorado and wraps up with three nights in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Last month, 'Bodak Yellow' rapper Cardi announced her departure from the tour after saying that she isn't physically or mentally ready to hit the road following the birth of her daughter.

"I think I underestimated this whole mummy thing," she wrote in a statement on Instagram, labelling the move as the "hardest decision to make". "I'm not ready to leave my baby behind," she added.

Meanwhile, Cardi and her husband Offset have reportedly trademarked their baby daughter’s name. According to documents obtained by The Blast, the pair have filed to register merchandising rights for jackets, shirts, sweaters, footwear, skirts and pants.
