Description

from Rock-A-Hula®
Rock-a-Hula! is a spectacular live concert featuring a "Hawaiian Journey" from 1920's to current through music and powerful performances by Legends Artists, hula, fire knife dancers and amazing musicians at the Royal Hawaiian Theater.

Along with legendary artists of yesteryear, our guests enjoy contemporary popular musical artistry showcased on the same stage as the thrilling historic performers. Imagine the “King of Rock n Roll” alongside the “King of Pop” singing on stage together with Elton John and Madonna. It happens 6 nights a week (excluding Mondays) at Legends in Concert Waikiki!

The 75-minute show was specifically developed for Hawaii and has been artistically infused with Hawaiian song and dance that underscores the island connections of the original artists. The concert begins with a huge, 42-foot tall, 3-screen visual experience that “lands” the audience in Hawaii where they are greeted by ancient Hawaiian chants and kahiko hula.

During the show, historic Hawaiian performances of the original artists are recreated through the magic of computerized projections of actual concert footage blended with live, on-stage singing and dancing by the tribute artists and a dozen professional dancers. The concert concludes as the audience joins in singing Aloha ‘Oe, the most beloved of all Hawaiian songs, composed by Princess Lili‘uokalani

The show’s name, “Rock-a-Hula!” is taken from the Elvis hit song, Rock-a-Hula Baby. The song’s mixed genre of rock and roll and Hawaiian folk captures the essence of Legends in Concert Waikiki.

I have two reviews on this which involve the luau and the show. Start with the luau. The staff was friendly and accommodating and performed a really nice show as we were dining. Free mai tai and they gave a rose to my fiancee. Meal tasted good but eventually made me sick when I returned home for the evening. Not sure what it was but I had extra fish. As far as the show goes, it was entertaining but I have been to other Legends shows before and was kind of disappointed to see only two impersonators Elvis and Micheal Jackson. Especially since they mentioned four. Overall the show was entertaining and we had good seats as part of the luau but it was still a bit of a let down.

"High Energy Show!!!!!"

This show was outstanding in every sense of the word. The Elvis and Michael Jackson impersonators that headlined were amazing. What was surprising is the supporting cast were also extremely talented. Lots of dancing, singing, and background effects. High energy throughout the entire show and the cast looked like they were having fun, so you had fun to!. Had basic tickets and the seats were fine. Cast made themselves readily available after show for pics. I was in Vegas recently and the show here was just as professional. Would highly recommend!
