The 'Locked Out Of Heaven' singer is sound checking ready for his headline set at this year's Ball.

Bruno Mars has officially arrived at London's O2 Arena today (8th December) ahead of his bill-topping performance at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2012.

The 'Grenade' singer has been sound checking with his band on stage in the currently empty arena, before the 16,000 fans arrive for today's sold-out first day of the Capital FM event.

Bruno is expected to thrill the thousands in attendance at tonight's show with a setlist of hits from across his first album 'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' and new album 'Unorthodox Jukebox', which is officially released this Monday (10th December).

Ahead of his performance today Bruno has promised he and his band will be wanting to "let loose" with their show when they give fans a "real treat" on stage.
