The number 24,000 is a gesture to the name of Mars' world tour and album, which swept the 2018 Grammy Awards. Mars will be working with The Salvation Army - Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division's 48th annual Thanksgiving Dinner meal program to cover the cost of meals.
On Sunday, Mars will end his almost two-year, 200-date world tour with the last night of his sold-out, three-night homecoming show at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The three-night run is historic, as he becomes the first artist to sell out three back-to-back performances at the stadium, topping both Michael Jackson and U2’s two-night stands. The 24K Magic World Tour kicked off in 2017, with Mars traveling to every continent except Antarctica. The tour's list of openers included Boyz II Men, Charlie Wilson, Ciara, and Ella Mai.
