Stadium officials make small changes to improve crowd control at Bruno Mars concerts

HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - After Thursday’s Bruno Mars concert, Aloha Stadium officials made a few changes to ease the concert experience for the thousands of fans who are expected to be in attendance.

The stadium is now allowing ride-share drops right at the main gates like they do for UH football games.

Meanwhile, lines for the restroom were pretty bad Thursday, especially for the ladies.

Aloha Stadium says that even though there is no seating on the north side, the restrooms are open so if you really have to go a short walk could be better than waiting in a long line.

Long lines are not surprising as the total attendance for Bruno’s three shows could beat an all time record set by the Rolling Stones in 1998.

“Over 100,000 in three nights so it’s pretty remarkable when you consider that one individual, one act, can pull that kind of attraction," said Ryan Andrews, Aloha Stadium deputy manager.

On Thursday, Mars opened to a crowd of roughly 36,000 adoring fans with a thrilling, energy-filled show at Aloha Stadium complete with fireworks and all.

This weekend his shows will continue Saturday and Sunday night. As a reminder to those going: plan ahead.

Many concert goers who attended Thursday’s concert said there were no major hassles in terms of traffic or getting into the stadium.
