Tickets for Garth Brooks’s upcoming first-ever concert in Hawaii went on sale Saturday morning, and they’re just about gone.
The popular country music singer/songwriter and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, will perform two shows at the Blaisdell Arena on Saturday, Dec. 10 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
Tickets went on sale through Ticketmaster online and by phone only, and they were going fast. At last check, there were not many tickets left.
To cut down on scalping, tickets were limited to eight per order, and with these paperless tickets, concertgoers will need to bring the credit card used in the purchase to the concert. That means any second-hand tickets will need to have the original credit card of purchase. Tickets are not transferable.
Organizers tell us they did not notice any suspicious activity today.
The two unplugged concerts are the first time Brooks is performing in the islands — just him and his acoustic guitar. Shows are at 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Brooks is performing for the Pacific Historic Parks that will disperse 100 percent of the net proceeds to four historic organizations with the mission of preserving the legacy of Pearl Harbor: WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument (USS Arizona Memorial), Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and Battleship Missouri Memorial.
The back-to-back concerts are the culmination of a week-long schedule of events commemorating the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, other military bases, and civilian areas on Oahu, which led directly to our country’s entry into WWII.
