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.

My husband and I visited Hawaii for the first time in March to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We did the Luau and the food was delicious, the staff was friendly and engaging, and the show was so much fun! I would definitely recommend and so worth the money.

Second time to the show- nice theatre, actually decent food (VIP PACKAGE with stage seating), friendly and good service. Elvis impersonator was a little tired this time. Michael Jackson impersonator definitely rocked it. The local girl was good too, but I liked the one from last September better. The show has Hula, fire dancing, Hawaiian history of music and tourism tribute. It must be low season because the place was hardly full. Honestly- way better than the outdated cheesy Magic of Polynesia show.

"Awesome Entertainment"

This was birthday treat for my mom to do something different and break up all the outdoor activities and she had a blast. Although it did help that she got kissed on the cheek by Elvis and he gave her his scarf. She also had pictures taken with Michael Jackson and the hula dancers, who were all fantastic entertainers. We had the Stageside VIP option so got to enjoy our dinner served inside. The buffet for the Luau was setup outdoors and it was quite hot the day we went so was grateful for indoor seating. Dinner wasn't five-star quality but it was enjoyable. The seating is quite close and i felt sardined in since the setup is in columns not rows, so you're sitting with your side to the stage instead of facing forward. This makes it easier for the servers, but I had to turn my seat to face the stage to enjoy the show so I wasn't straining my neck. This was the only down-size to me. Other than that, great fun and recommend.

This was an interesting experience. The food part was ok the location is on the top floor of a mall. The servers were special as they performed at the luau and later performed on stage in the Vegas style show. It was a big show. Very entertaining I would certainly recommend it.
