Earth, Wind & Fire are returning to Hawaii for a September to remember in a special one night only engagement. Building on their long history of sold out Honolulu shows, Earth, Wind & Fire will take the stage at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena on September 27th for what promises to be one of the most anticipated Hawaii concerts of 2016.

Concert promoter Rick Bartalini Presents will honor the residents of Hawaii with an exclusive Kama’aina pre-sale so local residents may purchase the best seats first, before they are offered on the mainland. Starting Monday, July 11th at 10:00 A.M., Hawaii residents can get early access to tickets before they go on sale to mainland customers. No password is required for local residents, only a Hawaii zip code. Hawaii residents may purchase up to eight tickets each. The Kama’aina pre-sale is only available on the full (desktop) Ticketmaster website and is not available on mobile devices. Non-Hawaii residents can purchase pre-sale tickets starting Friday, July 15th at 10:00 A.M. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, July 16th at 10:00 A.M.
