Bomb threat that stopped Bruno Mars concert was a false alarm

Bruno Mars concert 4-21

The investigation into a bomb threat during Bruno Mars’ final concert at the Blaisdell Arena is over.

The Grammy-Award-winning singer abruptly left the stage after his first song at approximately 9:15 p.m. Monday. The show resumed a few minutes later.

Honolulu police received the call at around 8:50 p.m.

According to the Dept. of Public Safety, deputy sheriffs were on special-duty assignment outside the arena. They were notified of the bomb threat and checked the area, but it was a false alarm.

No arrests were made.

The arena hired contract security to work inside the arena. Workers responded to an altercation involving 10 people and escorted them from the arena.

Officials say the altercation was not related to the bomb threat.
