Tickets for Bruno Mars’ concert at Aloha Stadium on Nov. 10 go on sale on June 9, with local residents getting a 48-hour jump on others.
The Hawaii native sold out three shows at Blaisdell Arena in April 2014, and his profile has only grown since, including winning six Grammys at this year’s ceremony, bringing his career total to 11. He brings his 24K Magic World Tour to Honolulu after more than 135 performances around the world. Rapper Cardi B has been his opening act on recent dates, but she announced last month that she is pregnant. Opening acts on his Hawaii date will be The Green and Common Kings.
The presale for Hawaii residents gives hope that there will not be a repeat of what happened when tickets went on sale for his 2014 shows, when many kamaaina were left without tickets, with mainland ticket brokers blamed.
Since then, many high-profile artists, including comedian Jo Koy and Diana Ross, have held presales restricted to local residents, and Mars is following suit.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 9, with prices ranging from $49.50 to $125, plus fees. Sales will be restricted to purchases with credit cards with Hawaii zip codes for billing. Tickets for the general public go on sale on June 11 at 10 a.m.
The show will begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30.
