Think About It: Bruno Brings It

While we still don't know if there is life on Mars, we know that we will see life with Mars in November when Bruno Mars returns home for a concert on November 10th at Aloha Stadium. With reasonably priced tickets and a 48-hour period where only local orders will be taken, starting on Saturday, this should help to ensure that everyone locally who wants to go, gets to go this time. Just don't wait too long.

 

You may recall that four years ago, when "little Elvis" played three shows at the Blaisdell Arena, tickets sold out in a mere nanosecond, and the aftermarket was able to charge outrageous prices to those who just had to go. The Aloha Stadium show on Saturday, November 10th, will allow about twice as many people to see Bruno outdoors than got to see him play three indoor shows back in April of 2014. Full disclosure- I am a member of the Aloha Stadium Authority, and thus am quite pleased that such a major concert event is choosing to come to Aloha Stadium. Hopefully, this will be just the first of many more great events to come to this viable venue.

 

We need more major concert and sporting events to come to our islands in general, and the public response to this concert, which should be great when tickets go on sales this Saturday, will go a long way toward convincing other acts, promoters and entrepreneurs that Hawaii can put on big time events, and put them on well. We need to continue to figure out ways to put together great events with manageable ticket prices to put Hawaii back on the concert and major sporting events map. As Bruno will say to us all with his "Uptown Funk" in five months, with great "Finesse" I might add- "That's What I Like". Think about it…
