Description

from Legends In Concert 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.

"Cheesy, fun show in downtown Waikiki"

I'm not into music very much and didn't get much out of it (big surprise). But for anyone that's looking to go to this show, I would advise going early on in the trip, before learning about and attending Hawaiian culture as the hula parts can come across very cheesy. If you enjoy very touristy attractions, it'd be worth it to go. If you want an authentic, Hawaiian experience, skip it.

Unfortunately the theatre was not full which didn't help, but the show seemed quite flat and quite a lot tacky. It was ok when it was Hawaiian themed and had Elvis Presley, beach and surf music, but why Michael Jackson and even worse, Katy Perry? Can't see the connection. I am a little tired of the usual photo as you go in and then.....that will be $10 for a pre show drink thanks! It only went for an hour, which is not real value for money. Perhaps it was an off night, but I wouldn't recommend it.

This was a great alternative to the usual luau show. We did the green room package, which came with an interesting backstage tour, meeting the artists before the show, and front row seats. The food was good, but heavy on the seafood which I don't eat. Honestly, there was enough food that I didn't leave hungry, so not eating the seafood was no big deal, I just felt bad it was wasted. The impersonators included Elvis, Katy Perry, and Michael Jackson. Elvis and Michael Jackson were amazing. Katy Perry definitely needed some work. Otherwise the show was fabulous. The local hula and fire throwing dancers were unbelievable.
