Hawaii residents snap up Bruno Mars tickets

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Credit card information shows that 42 percent of the tickets purchased for three sold-out Bruno Mars concerts in Hawaii were purchased by people outside the state.

According to the Blaisdell box office and Ticketmaster, those purchases were made by people on the mainland and Canada. But Hawaii residents managed to snap up 58 percent of the 17,000 tickets.

Local promoter Tom Moffatt tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser he hadn't experienced a sellout like he saw Monday in his 50-year career.

Ticket sales started at 9 a.m. and set a Blaisdell sellout record by 11 a.m.

The Hawaii-born singer will perform shows at the Blaisdell Center Arena on April 18, 19 and 21.

Tickets for 40 performances during his spring-summer tour went on sale the day his halftime Super Bowl show.
