It’s hard these days not to have a Bruno Mars song stuck in your head.

The pop musician, likened by one critic to a cross between a “coy young Elvis and naughty ‘The Girl is Mine’ Michael Jackson,” arrives in the Valley for a concert with co-headliner Janelle Monae.

Expect Mars’ portion of the program to be filled with songs from his platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated “Hooligans and Doo Wops” album — the one containing radio hits “Just The Way You Are” and “Grenade.”

Mayer Hawthorne and Plan B also perform on the Hooligans in Wondaland tour.
