Bruno Mars concert tickets sold out in about two hours when they went on sale in Hawaii in February. The process used to sell the tickets online was scrutinized as local fans felt it was unfair that a large portion of the tickets were bought by people who don’t live in Hawaii, seemingly for resale at a later time.
Once all the hullabaloo about the ticket sales was over, the wait was on. Weeks dragged by as anxious fans eagerly anticipated Bruno taking the stage in April. When concert day arrived all was well and fans loved the concerts, but problems popped up during the third concert.
The pumped up fans were high on adrenaline when Bruno finally took the stage on his final night. In the middle of his first song the lights came up and Bruno apologized and excused himself from the stage…What in the world was going on???
As fans would later find out, someone called in a bomb threat. State deputy sheriffs went into action, checked the area, and gave the all clear. But this was not the end of the surprises to come from Bruno’s final Hawaii concert.
About the same time as state deputy sheriffs were checking out the bomb threat, some overzealous fans got into a fight near the stage and had to be escorted out. Bummer. After paying all that money and waiting all that time, why in the world would you get into a fight and get yourself kicked out of the concert?
After a short wait, Bruno took the stage again and the concert went on without a hitch. As the show went on the familiar chords to Bruno’s famous, “Just the Way You Are” began to play. The crowd went wild, but they were about to get even wilder. As many performers do during their concerts, Bruno picked a very special lady to serenade for this particular song.
Who was this lucky lady? Who had Bruno singled out to sing this special song to? It turns out Bruno was singing to his grandmother. She was in tears as he sang to her, and so were his fans. Well done Bruno, well done.
To try and accommodate more of his fans the next time he comes home to Hawaii, they are planning to have his concert at the much larger Aloha Stadium. Considering Hawaii is often left off of the most famous musical artists’ tour stops, we are all looking forward to Bruno’s homecoming. Aloha Oe, Bruno…until we meet again.
