Bruno Mars announces second concert after quicky selling out

News

Bruno Mars has added a 2nd Honolulu show to his 24K Magic World Tour taking place Sunday, November 11 at Aloha Stadium. Both nights, produced by Live Nation, will feature special guests The Green & Common Kings.

Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com and the venue box office.

Statement from Ticketmaster:

“The 24K Magic World Tour anticipated extremely high demand for Bruno Mars’ hometown show. In order to reward local fans with the fairest access to tickets, the tour restricted ticket sales for this show to Hawaii residents for the first 48 hours of the onsale. Given the extraordinarily high demand for the first show, a second Honolulu show has been added at Aloha Stadium on Sunday, November 11, 2018. We expect similar demand for this second show and will implement the same ticket access restriction for Hawaii residents for the first 48 hours of the onsale. Ticketmaster will continue to ensure that Bruno Mars’ fans have fair access to tickets for this event.”


Tickets for the Bruno Mars concert in Honolulu will go on sale tomorrow, Saturday, June 9, at 10 a.m.

But that didn’t stop hundreds of fans, who will spend the night at Aloha Stadium, waiting for tickets.

Catheryn Nauka of Kapolei was the first one in line with her mom. She says they started “scoping out the stadium” around noon yesterday, nearly 48 hours before tickets even go on sale. 

“I’m in line for my four and nine year olds, they absolutely love Bruno Mars, and we can’t wait—I can’t wait for the priceless moments and smiles on their faces,” Nauka said. 

Some family members were waiting in line, with no intention of even going to the concert. 

“I’m not even going to the concert, I’m just in line for my sister,” said Precious Linmark, who was waiting in line since 7 a.m. 

Campers were waiting around playing Bruno Mars songs, while others were playing cards, taking naps, and spending time with family.

Staff at the stadium say there were about 200 people in line at around 3 p.m., but were expecting more people to show up once the workday was over. 

Nauka said another benefit to standing in line is to hopefully guarantee a front-row seat for her kids.

“I don’t think they would be able to see if we just had floor seats,” she said. “So I’m gunning for those front row seats so they can see and no one is blocking them.” 

There will be limited accessible seating available at field level and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Stadium officials add that the best chance for getting a ticket is online at ticketmaster.com. There is a four ticket limit per person. 

Tickets will only be available for persons that have credit cards with a Hawaii billing zip code. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, June 11, at 10 a.m. 

“We’re so proud, Bruno Mars is from Hawaii and everyone standing in line is just so proud of him,” Nauka added. “He inspires—from my 4-year-old and up. I know my kids will enjoy it and the rest of Hawaii will enjoy it. We’re ready for an awesome show.”

The concert will take place Saturday, Nov. 10, at Aloha Stadium.
