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.

"New show"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Went to the show again the other night. As we walked in Corey Melton (Michael Jackson) was posing for photos. He said straight away "You look familiar, I remember you from last year" followed by hugs for my wife & I. With something else he said it confirmed this wasn't just a 'line' and that he genuinely remembered us. This made the start of the evening brilliant. A whole new show which we thoroughly enjoyed. Talking with the artists afterwards was excellent and didn't feel rushed. We love this show and will go each time we visit and recommend it to others. All staff, artists and the supporting band are brilliant. I have to say that I did prefer the ending of the old show, but still loved this one. Keep up the great work Rock-A-Hula.

"Too long with Stageside Dinner"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed June 16, 2017 NEW
It's a fun show, not exactly Vegas quality but pretty good. We opted for the Stageside Dinner. What we didn't know was that most of the guests don't speak English (apparently it is like this every night). We always enjoy meeting new people over dinner, but didn't have that opportunity at Rock-a-Hula. While a two hour dinner with my husband is nice, I can get that every night. So I would recommend skipping the dinner of OK lobster, a nice little steak and some poor salmon and going for the show alone. The theater was quite nice and a surprise - it is located atop the Royal Hawaiian Center in a central location. The stage sets were fun, Elvis sounded quite like Elvis and Michael Jackson moved with MJ energy.

The performers were excellent and the crowd was small. It was well worth the money. Definitely go if you get the chance.

I really enjoyed the show and I liked that there were acts for me and my husband to enjoy and an act for my daughter to enjoy. We love Elvis and Michael Jackson so it was a real treat to see the Kings and my daughter said that the Katy Perry was amazing. She even managed to get a picture with her after the show! This is a really good show for all the family.

My family and I really enjoyed this show! All of the performers were full of energy and super entertaining! The impersonators were great! It was interesting to see how people can transform like that! I enjoyed the variety of upbeat musical mixed with Hawaiian culture. I recommend this show to anyone who likes to be entertained by live theater! I would see this again!
