Discounted Tickets for Ed in Hawaii

by Kathy Davis on April 9, 2009

Ed is offering  a cool $10.00 discount for tickets to his solo shows in a special pre-sale for Hawaiian residents, according to this report from

Part-time Hawaii resident and full-time Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder will end a solo summer tour in one of his favorite places in the world: Hawaii.

Vedder will wrap up an 14-date United States east coast tour of small theatres with a trio of concerts as far west as one can go in the U.S. He’ll play the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on June 29, and the Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu, Oahu, on July 1 and 2.

Vedder has close ties to the islands.

He keeps a home in Hawaii and spends a good deal of time here annually, most of it surfing our winter swells. Hawaii was where Vedder first met Hammond B-3 organ master, unofficial sixth member of Pearl Jam and Waimanalo, Oahu native Kenneth “Boom” Gaspar. He’s given considerable amounts of his time and music over the years to several Hawaii-based causes, including the North Shore Community Land Trust and Jack Johnson’s environmental education-focused Kokua Hawaii Foundation and Kokua Festival.

Tickets prices for Vedder’s Hawaii solo concerts will be the lowest on the tour—$66.50 for the Maui show, and $72 for the Honolulu shows.

And as a special “mahalo” to fans who live here in Hawaii, Vedder is discounting a limited number of tickets by $10 in a special pre-sale on April 17. A valid Hawaii photo I.D. is required. Tickets at the discounted price must be purchased at the following locations, at the time specified.
