The Hawaii-born singer's 24K Magic world tour will make a third stop at Aloha Stadium, capping off a run of 135+ dates across the globe

Following two sold-out dates, Bruno Mars has added a historic third Hawaii show to his successful 24k Magic world tour.
Produced and promoted by Live Nation, the newly announced concert will take place on Thursday 8 November at the 50,000-capacity Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The trio of homecoming performances by the Honolulu-born star is a record for the stadium, with no other artist in its history having booked so many dates in succession.
Mars (pictured) will also play Aloha Stadium on 10 and 11 November, with special guests the Green and Common Kings.
The 24K Magic tour, Mars’s third world tour, will have made more than 135 stops in the Americas, the UK and Europe by the time it wraps up with the final Honolulu show. According to Pollstar’s mid-year top 100 tours chart, Mars sold nearly 739,575 tickets in H1 2018.
The 24K Magic tour is the Grammy winner’s first since 2013’s Moonshine Jungle world tour, which sold two million tickets worldwide from 155 sold-out dates.
