HONOLULU - Lots of let down Bruno Mars fans vented their frustration about not being able to score tickets online to the concert. Many of them blame automated bots behind the sudden swallow-up on Ticketmaster.com because, they say,, while they were trying to get their own tickets, many folks saw prices hiked hundreds of dollars on third party resale sites like stubhub.com.

State Senator Clarence Nishihara is on the Senate committee for Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health. He says he can't recall legislation to combat the problem but acknowledged it's something the committee can look into. 

"The people who are scalping and selling it- I guess it's outrageous in terms of cost. As an example, buying four tickets at $125 and then reselling those tickets for like $3,000, $5,000. $88 thousand dollars? That's crazy," Senator Nishihara says. 

Ticketmaster also had what it calls "Platinum tickets," which are tickets that go up in price based on demand. Tickets for the second concert on November 11 go on sale on Saturday, June 16. 

Ticketmaster sent a statement late Saturday night saying: 

"The 24K Magic World Tour anticipated extremely high demand for Bruno Mars’ hometown show. In order to reward local fans with the fairest access to tickets, the tour restricted ticket sales for this show to Hawaii residents for the first 48 hours of the onsale. Given the extraordinarily high demand for the first show, a second Honolulu show has been added at Aloha Stadium on Sunday, November 11, 2018. We expect similar demand for this second show and will implement the same ticket access restriction for Hawaii residents for the first 48 hours of the onsale. Ticketmaster will continue to ensure that Bruno Mars’ fans have fair access to tickets for this event."
