Tips for Bruno Mars 24K Magic World Tour - Hawaii Concertgoers

Last night my friends and I attended the first night of Bruno Mars’ #24kmagicworldtour in Hawaii. The concert was awesome (Bruno started at 9:12pm and ended just before 11pm; Charlie Wilson, the opening act, was great too). The entire night pre- and post-concert seemed a bit chaotic, however, but hopefully by Saturday’s & Sunday’s concerts there will be more organization. Thankfully, from what I could tell, most people treated others with respect, and everyone had a great time.

Here are a few tips for future concertgoers:

1) Do not park at Aiea Elementary. Getting to the pedestrian bridge after the concert was awful. Getting out of the Aiea El parking lot was even more awful. Find a park & shuttle if you can. Or if you choose to park at the stadium, park away from the pedestrian bridge & as close to an exit as possible.

2) Get in line as soon as you arrive at the stadium, and if you notice a faster moving line, it’s probably the one you want to move to.  The security check process was quick, but some lines merged with others, causing them to move very slowly.  No outside food / drink is allowed inside the stadium, but consider bringing food / drink for while you wait in line to get in (we were in line for nearly an hour)

3) If you plan to drink, you need to get a wristband ahead of time from one of the numerous ID check stations. If you don’t have one when you’re ordering a drink, you’ll be asked to go get one.

4) Get your food / drink early. Buy as many drinks, pizzas, etc. as you think you'll need.  Have some people in your party stand in line for drinks, others for food.  By 630p one pizza station already ran out. One cocktail station had already run out of Mai Tais by 700p.  Note - most vendors accept cash only.

5) Bring a disposable poncho in case of rain. We felt a few drops, but fortunately no heavy rain.

6) Dress for warm weather. Even though the concert is at night, waiting in lines (for security, food, restrooms), and being amongst 30000+ people made it very, very hot. Bring a portable / collapsible fan if you wish.  If you tend to get cold, bring a light jacket.  But you'll most likely be dancing the night away, working up a sweat!

7) Have patience, aloha, and lots of fun!!! Bruno Mars was amazing!
