  • Taking a cue from this, we used a VPN tool to look for the TikTok account, since the platform is banned in India.

  • This led us to one Noah Reyna's account, where we saw that this video was uploaded a week ago, which implies that this video was shared on or before 5 October.

The translated version of this video's caption asked viewers if they were at the show "today," and was shared with a hashtag with American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars' name.

  • Using Google Lens, we translated the Hebrew text in the video.

  • The translation mentioned that it showed "the moment they opened the gates at Bruno Mars."

On looking for news reports about the event, we found an article by Times of Israel dated 5 October, which mentioned that the previous evening (4 October) was Mars' first performance in Israel's Tel Aviv.

We also noticed a board with the words "Live Nation" and "Bruno Mars" on it.

  • Using these as search terms, we came across an Instagram account for Live Nation Israel, an entertainment company which organises concerts.

  • In one of its pinned posts, it showed that Bruno Mars was scheduled to give two performances at Park Hayarkon at Tel Aviv, Israel, on 4 and 7 October.
