Bruno Mars attempted to speak as Gaeilge with the help of 2FM's Eoghan McDermott.

On Tuesday, Bruno Mars announced that he will bring his 24k Magic World Tour to Ireland.

The musician will perform at the 3Arena on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

To help him prepare for the show, 2FM's Eoghan McDermott gave him some "cupla focal"

He taught him how to say "Dublin, how are you?" as a standard greeting but Bruno requested a more grittier opening.

"How do you say 'Ireland, get the f**k up, let's dance'?" he asked.

Eoghan, a capable Gaeilgeoir, gladly obliged.

"Write that sh*t down," exclaimed Bruno.

"That sounds intense. That sounds like we're ready for war right there."

Bruno Mars will speak with Eoghan McDermott in his only exclusive Irish Interview at 4pm today on RTE 2FM.
