Bomb threat interrupts Bruno Mars concert

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:41 p.m. HST, Apr 22, 2014

A bomb threat briefly interrupted Bruno Mars' third concert at the Blaisdell Arena Monday night.

Police received the threat at 9:15 p.m. interrupting Mars' first song.

State deputy sheriffs, who were on special duty outside of the Blaisdell Arena, were notified of the bomb threat, said Toni Schwartz, Department of Public Safety spokeswoman.

The deputy sheriffs checked the area and determined it was a false alarm. Schwartz said.

The concert resumed after the area was checked and no explosive devices were found. The arena was not evacuated.

However, private security hired by the Blaisdell Arena to work inside of the facility, responded to a fight involving 10 people. Security ejected the 10 people from the arena. The fight was not related to the bomb threat, Schwartz said.

They just wasted their hundreds of dollars of tickets. Maybe they were just plain wasted. Stupidity and embarrassment. Good riddance.

people were so drunk at the concert. I had more beer spilled on me at the concert than at a club.

Some people just can't go anywhere without fighting. At least that is another story they can add when they are sitting around getting drunk.
