For those who aren’t familiar with Koy, he has been an island favorite ever since his Honolulu debut in 2001 as the opening act and emergency emcee at the Snoop Dogg/Ludacris double-bill in the arena. It was the first and last time Koy performed here as anybody’s opening act. From then on, he was here as a nightclub headliner playing in larger rooms for bigger crowds each time.
In 2017, Koy made Hawaii entertainment history by selling out 11 shows at the Blaisdell Concert Hall — approximately 23,000 tickets — the most ever sold by a single artist performing in the concert hall.
Since then he has performed in the isles a number of times to sold-out crowds.
Tickets, which cost $59 to $89, can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.
