When you think of romantic spots in Sydney, where do you think of? Maybe somewhere with a view of the harbour bridge, one of our gorgeous beaches, or possibly even the Royal Botanic Gardens…
But for Grammy Award singer Bruno Mars, he thinks of a place a little bit more west that was made famous on SBS…Mount Druitt!!
During Jackie’s O news on the show this morning she revealed that at Bruno Mars’ Sydney leg of the 24K Magic Tour, Bruno gave a shoutout to the town out west. Jackie revealed that fans lost their minds during the show on Saturday night when Bruno made a joke about taking his girl out on a date to Mount Druitt.
During the skit Bruno calls up his girlfriend and says, “Hey baby! I’m in Sydney right now. Remember that time we vacationed over here and I took you to Mount Druitt?”.
When the crowd heard mention of the suburb from Struggle Street they erupted in cheers. “Not like paris where we stayed up late hours of the night…Nah f*ck that we going to MOUNT DRUITT!!”, continued Bruno Mars. Again the crowd absolutely roared!
Kyle then joked and said, “Guys forget about taking the girls out to the Easter Suburbs, they want to go to Mt Druitt!”
The shoutout has since sparked the start of a new hashtag across social media, ‘#BringBrunotoMountDruitt’.
