Tickets still available for Bruno Mars' Blaisdell concerts
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
"It's chaotic, it's bananas, it's absolutely overwhelming." That's how 102.7 Da Bomb DJ Steezy describes the hype leading up to the three Bruno Mars concerts happening April 18-20 at the Blaisdell Arena.
During a conversation, he takes time to answer phone calls from listeners still trying to find tickets. Although they've been sold out for months, 102.7 Da Bomb is giving people a chance to score a pair at the last minute.
"We have front row seats to give away, so close you can probably touch Bruno if he decides to come over. You can probably smell what cologne he's wearing" said Steezy.
The promotion is simple. Listeners have been challenged to make the biggest, baddest Bruno sign possible, then submit a photo via 102.7's website or Instagram account.
A winner will be announced live on air Friday morning between 6-10am.
For those looking for the sure thing, tickets are available through individual sales. People are selling them on sites like stubhub.com and craigslist. Prices we saw ranged from the low hundreds of dollars to one thousand dollars.
While expensive, the prices have come down significantly after the initial crush to get them. As the concert gets closer, the competition between buyers shifts to the sellers looking to unload them.
Traditionally, individual ticket sale prices usually drop in price the closer and closer an event gets. For Bruno Mars fans, however, no price is too high.
Said Steezy of the concert: "Right now, the Bruno Mars show I feel is THE ONE of 2014. It's THE concert to be at".
