    Mariah Carey:

    The singer returns to perform again in Hawaii after a four-year absence

Pop superstar Mariah Carey returns to Hawaii on March 10 with a concert at the Blaisdell Arena.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday to Hawaii residents and military only, a one-hour head start on other buyers.

Carey has topped the Billboard pop singles chart 18 times, starting with her debut single, “Vision of Love,” in 1990 and most recently “Touch My Body” in 2008, and the next three singles, all from her eponymous debut album. Her duet with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day,” held the record for most weeks at the top (16) until just this year, when it was surpassed by Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”

Only the Beatles have had more No. 1 singles than Carey, and she is tied with Elvis Presley for most total weeks in the top spot (79). She has sold more than 60 million albums in the U.S. alone.

Her last visit to Hawaii resulted in three sellouts at the Blaisdell Arena in November 2016. Her previous one was 18 years earlier, a sellout of Aloha Stadium attended by 33,000 fans.

Tickets for the March 10 show will be available via Ticketmaster, at the Blaisdell Box Office and by calling 800-745-3000 starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, but the presale beginning an hour earlier is available only at Ticketmaster.com and requires the password “Christmas,” in honor of Carey’s holiday standard “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Prices range from $65.75 to $255.75.
