Aha! We just found out WHY John Travolta visited Hawaii dressed in black. Apparently the church of Scientology had a huge fundraising concert planned for May 24 at the Honolulu Design Center. Lisa Marie Presley was set to perform, among others. It was a $2500 a ticket fundraiser for Narcanon drug rehab. (Scientology was not mentioned in ads) and the church hoped at least a thousand Hawaiians would attend. But the local newspaper spelled out what many Hawaiians didn’t realize – that Scientology backed Narcanon. Hawaiians stayed away in droves. The event was a total bust and when few tickets sold, they flew in Scientologists from the mainland and moved the concert to a restaurant. Lisa Marie avoided the whole debacle and flew to another island.
