Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars to return to Hawaii for upcoming concert

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Grammy Award-winning musician Bruno Mars is coming back to Hawaii – and this time, he's performing at Aloha Stadium.

Hawaii News Now has learned that the Hawaii native and Roosevelt High School graduate is adding Hawaii to his list of states for his current 24K Magic World Tour.

No dates have been announced by Mars or his management team, but multiple sources say it will likely take place in November.

Mars' latest album, 24K Magic, swept the Grammy Awards in January, winning both the Record and Album of the Year awards. The album's hit single, 'That's What I Like,' won the Song of the Year award.

He last performed in Hawaii at the Blaisdell Arena in April of 2014, at the start of his 'Moonshine Jungle' World Tour. Tickets for his three shows were snatched up in record-setting time, within just a few hours.

People also stood in long lines waiting to buy tickets only to find out that they were sold out within hours. It's believed that many of these tickets were sold to scalpers on the mainland.

The incident changed the landscape of big concerts in Hawaii, prompting lawmakers to push legislation preventing people from scalping tickets.
