3rd Mariah Carey show added due to high ticket demand

Just hours after Mariah Carey’s first show was quickly sold out Saturday morning, and on the heels of the announcement of a second show, promoter Rick Bartalini has just announced a third show for Wednesday, Nov. 23, 8 p.m., at the Blaisdell Arena.

Tickets for the Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 26, concerts are $255.50, $155.50, $85.50, and $65.50 plus service fees. They’re available online at ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets at all Walmart locations, in-person at the Blaisdell box office (Monday – Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) or charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000.

Hawaii residents and military have access to a kamaaina pre-sale that started at 9 a.m. Saturday for those with a Hawaii ZIP code. Customers can purchase up to eight tickets each.

Tickets go on sale worldwide Oct. 1 at 9 a.m.

Carey’s concerts will make her first performances in Hawaii in nearly two decades. Her last performance in Hawaii was in February 1998. The sold-out concert at Aloha Stadium was filmed for her HBO special “Mariah Carey: Live Around the World.”

In a statement to her Hawaii fans, Carey said:

Aloha Lambily, it’s been too long!! I’m so excited to be coming to Hawaii to perform for you all. I’m thrilled my extraordinarily talented friend Jussie Smollett will be joining us for this special night in paradise. I promise we’re going to share the most amazing moments together and I have so many surprises in store for you daahhlings! Can’t wait to see you all. Love Mariah xx

Actor and singer Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal Lyon on the hit FOX show “Empire” will open the show.

Speaking of which, Carey will appear on the Oct. 5 episode, playing a singer named Kitty who collaborates with Jamal (Smollett) to help him craft a new song.
