Bruno Mars confirmed today what the Honolulu Star-Advertiser first reported almost a month ago: He will return home to Hawaii for a concert at Aloha Stadium on Nov. 10.
The Roosevelt graduate made the announcement regarding his 24K Magic World Tour this afternoon with a trio of posts on his Instagram account. A source told the Star-Advertiser that a second show is being considered for Nov. 11. That show has not been announced yet, likely pending ticket sales for the first show.
It is common practice for additional concerts to be booked as each previously announced show sells out, as was the case recently when comedian Jo Koy extended his November run at the Blaisdell Arena from one show to two and eventually three and four as each of the first three sold out.
Mars last played in Hawaii in 2014, selling out three concerts at Blaisdell Arena. Tickets for that homestand sold out so quickly that many local fans were left without, with mainland ticket brokers getting the blame.
Since then, many high-profile artists, including Koy and Diana Ross, have held presales restricted to local residents.
Ticket prices and dates when they go on sale are not yet available.
