The four words so many Hawaii residents have wanted to hear for months can finally be written: more Bruno Mars tickets.
The Hawaii-born pop star’s first three shows at Aloha Stadium next month each sold out within a couple of hours, leaving the jacked-up prices of the resale market as the only option for the many kamaaina who didn’t get in on the first 100,000-plus tickets sold.
Promoter Live Nation Tuesday announced that more seats for all three shows — Nov. 8, 10 and 11 — will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. online only through Ticketmaster. The new seats were opened up when the configuration of the set for Mars’ “24K Magic World Tour” was finalized. They will be available only to Hawaii residents for the first 48 hours. Live Nation has not indicated what price levels the new seats will be in, but previously released tickets started at $49.50.
Live Nation also announced that former Gap Band lead singer Charlie Wilson will be a guest on the Nov. 8 show. The soul and funk legend has guested on several dates on the tour. As previously announced, The Green and Common Kings will be the opening acts on the last two shows.
