Rick Bartalini Presents is proud and delighted to announce that Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of all time, will be returning to the Hawaii stage this fall with her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour. On the heels of a sold-out Las Vegas residency, the forthcoming launch of docuseries Mariah’s World on E!, and one of the most exciting years of her extraordinary career, the global superstar will be taking her fans on a thrilling journey of wonder as she performs her biggest, career-defining hits. To reward her legions of super-loyal Hawaiian fans, the Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour will play Honolulu’s Neal S. Blaisdell Arena on Friday, November 25, 2016. The one-night-only engagement marks Mariah’s first performance in Hawaii in nearly two decades.

International demand for the one-night-only engagement is expected to be unprecedented. Therefore, concert promoter Rick Bartalini Presents will honor the residents and military of Hawaii with an exclusive Kama’aina pre-sale to purchase the best seats first. Starting Saturday, September 24th at 9:00 A.M., Hawaii residents and military can get early access to tickets before they go on sale anywhere else in the world.

Drawing on a back catalogue of over 18 No. 1 singles, Mariah will be performing her biggest hits, including the timeless “Hero,” “Fantasy,” “Always Be My Baby,” the global smash hit “We Belong Together” and many, many more.

After two seasons of speculation, Mariah will appear on the third season of the hit Fox series Empire. Carey will play a singer named Kitty who collaborates with Jamal (Jussie Smollett) at Empire and helps him craft an “explosive new song.” Mariah will appear on the October 5th episode.

“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 extraordinarilytalented 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”

Mariah Carey’s last performance in Hawaii was in February 1998. The sold-out concert at the Aloha Stadium sold an astonishing 33,000 tickets. The performance was filmed for her HBO special Mariah Carey Live Around the World.

Mariah Carey is a music icon, a soul legend, a pop phenomenon, a breathtaking live artist and planet Earth’s best-selling female artist of all time. She has sold over 220 million records and 17 of her 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles have been self-penned, including ‘Fantasy’, ‘Always Be My Baby’, ‘Hero’, ‘Touch My Body’, ‘One Sweet Day’, and ‘We Belong Together’, more than any other solo artist.

With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah has defined the modern pop artist. As a singer/songwriter/producer, amongst her countless awards, she has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist Of The Millennium,” and BMI’s “Icon Award” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting.

Mariah Carey’s ongoing impact transcends the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large. Her docuseries “Mariah’s World” will premiere internationally this fall on E! and takes a look behind the scenes in her busy life. She has made substantial marks in film with critically acclaimed roles in Precious (2009), Lee Daniel’s The Butler (2013) and last year Mariah made her directorial debut in A Christmas Melody, a special festive feature for Hallmark, in which she also starred. A Congressional Award recipient, Mariah has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart including Save the Music, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Hunger Relief, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, among many others. A tremendous supporter of children’s charities, both domestic and international, Mariah founded Camp Mariah in partnership with the Fresh Air Fund, a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.

Jussie Smollett is an accomplished singer, songwriter and actor. In 2015, Jussie was catapulted to international fame playing Jamal Lyon opposite Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on monster hit television series, Empire. Tonight on Fox, Jussie enters his third season starring on the multiple award-winning hit series that continues to shatter records, finishing the second season as the No. 1 show on broadcast television.

Jussie co-wrote the songs “I Wanna Love You” and “You’re So Beautiful” on the Grammy nominated Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire album. In addition to numerous BET and Teen Choice Award nominations, Jussie is a six-time NAACP award winner including “Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration” and “Outstanding Song” for “You’re So Beautiful” as well as “Outstanding New Artist.” Jussie is signed to Columbia Records.

“The word ‘honored’ doesn’t begin to explain how I feel about being on the same stage as the incomparable Mariah Carey. She is one of the greatest artists of all time and now a dear friend. I know I will cherish these moments forever and I know that this lighting is about to be POPPIN. Aloha Hawaii…see you soon.” Said Jussie Smollett about his upcoming concert with Mariah Carey, his first in Hawaii.

Jussie is actively involved in numerous charities and was named by the Black AIDS Institute as one of the 30 artists under 30 truly making a difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS. He recently was inducted into its hall of fame. He sits on the Board of Artists for a New South Africa, and he supports the Jenesee Foundation, a shelter for battered women.

Bill Maher Returns To Hawaii For New Year’s With Comedy All-Stars Margaret Cho & David Cross

Special Kama’aina pre-sale tickets available for Hawaii residents only
starting today at 10:00 A.M. HST

Tickets on sale to general public starting Saturday, June 25th at 10:00 A.M. HST

December 31 Blaisdell Concert Hall
January 1 Maui Arts & Cultural Center

For the sixth year in a row, Bill Maher will be ringing in the New Year once again in the Hawaiian Islands featuring his biggest shows yet with Bill Maher’s 6th Annual New Year’s All-Star Evening of Comedy with Bill Maher, Margaret Cho & David Cross. Performances will be New Year’s Eve at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu and New Year’s Day at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahului. Making the celebration bigger than ever before, the host of HBO’s Real Time will welcome Margaret Cho and David Cross to the party for the first time ever. After sold-out shows for the past five years, Maher continues to make good on his promise to be the “Don Ho of New Year’s.”

Special Kama’aina pre-sale tickets to both shows will go on sale for Hawaii residents only today, June 20th at 10:00 A.M. HST. Buyers with a Hawaii zip code may buy up to eight tickets each. Non-Hawaii residents can purchase pre-sale tickets starting Friday, June 24th at 10:00 A.M and can access the pre-sale code and further information by signing up for Event Alerts at RBPconcerts.com. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Saturday, June 25th at 10:00 A.M. HST.

As the U.S. wraps up a Presidential election year, Maher will surely have plenty of material to draw from. For over 20 years, Maher, who began his career as a stand-up comedian and still performs sold-out dates across the country, has never held back and set the boundaries of where funny and political talk can go on American television. First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002) and for the last 10 years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs has earned him 34 Emmy nominations; winning his first in 2014 as the Executive Producer for HBO’s Vice. In 2008, he wrote and starred in Religulous directed by Larry Charles (Borat). The documentary about religions around the world went on to become the eighth highest grossing documentary ever.

Adding to this New Year’s extravaganza will be Emmy and Grammy-nominated actress and comedienne Margaret Cho. Having conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music and theatre, her comedy tours are a constant sell-out both here and abroad. She’s had two shows debut Off-Broadway (I’m The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman) and her last stand-up, psyCHO, was filmed at the historic Gramercy Theatre in New York City.

Since January of this year, David Cross has been “Making America Great Again,” touring the country in his first standup show in six years. Cross’ last tour in 2009 was a solo stand-up show in support of his New York Times Bestseller, I Drink for a Reason. It was filmed at Boston’s Wilbur Theater for a special, entitled Bigger and Blackerer, which premiered on EPIX in April 2010 before being released on CD and DVD by Sub Pop. His previous comedy special, David Cross: The Pride is Back, aired on HBO in 1999, and was named one of the 25 best stand-up comedy specials and concert films of all time by Rolling Stone in July 2015.

Fans can expect the unexpected when it comes to Maher’s New Year’s extravaganza. In 2013, Academy Award-winner Sean Penn and Director Michael Moore made a surprise appearance to introduce Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, who wowed the crowd with a surprise acoustic set. Last year, David Spade and Jeff Ross added to the hysteria. No matter what happens, one thing is for certain: The Islands are the place to be to welcome in 2017.

“I think everybody wants to be in Hawaii in December,” Maher said. “That was my plan all year; get my ass booked there for New Year’s!”

An Acoustic Evening With Lyle Lovett & Robert Earl Keen Second Show Added Due To Overwhelming Demand

TWO NIGHTS,
TWO UNIQUE PERFORMANCES

Tickets on sale to general public starting today at Noon PT

SANTA CRUZ, CA — Due to overwhelming demand, a second Lyle Lovett & Robert Earl Keen show has been added to the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium on Easter Sunday, March 27th, 2016 at 8:00 P.M. The second night was added shortly after unprecedented demand for tickets for the duo’s first show on March 26th nearly sold out in a matter of days after going on sale. They previously performed together in 2013 to a sold out crowd at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.

Lovett and Keen, who as friends spent many a night performing together on their front porches – will perform acoustic, stripped-down versions of their most well-known songs, and share the humorous and heartwarming stories behind them with a completely unique performance and set list each night.

Tickets for the added March 27th show will go on sale to the general public today, December 23rd at Noon PT. A limited number of tickets for the March 26th show are still available.

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

As singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen has built a reputation as one of the nation’s finest musical storytellers, he has been guided by several self-imposed rules and traditions that are often the antithesis of music industry standards.

General Ticket Information

Tickets for An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett & Robert Earn Keen, March 26th & 27th at 8:00 P.M. at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium are $89.50, $69.50, and $49.50 plus service fees.

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

As singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen has built a reputation as one of the nation’s finest musical storytellers, he has been guided by several self-imposed rules and traditions that are often the antithesis of music industry standards.
