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.

"Don't visit Waikiki without seeing this show"

Four of us visited Waikiki this year and went to the Rock-A-Hula show. It was money well spent, the pre-show dinner was excellent along with the hula dancers. The show itself was absolutely magnificent. The standard of the performers was top rate. Spoil yourselves and see the performance, you won't be disappointed.

"Phenomenal!"

I dragged my (admittedly reluctant) partner to this show in Waikiki and we both couldn't rate it any higher! From start to finish; the energy, enthusiasm and talent oozed from every performer, whether they be a dancer, singer or fire juggler. It was a thoroughly enjoyable night and one of the best things we did on our trip. I just wish the organisers would do more to promote the show in order to attract a bigger crowd as I merely stumbled upon this show by accident and didn't see it advertised anywhere during the course of our stay. A must-see to enhance your Hawaiian experience!!

I took my 18 year old niece to the show. We booked it online and it was confusing because we thought we were going to eat too. Turns out we only booked the show. Drinks before were expensive but delicious. The crowd was mostly Japanese tourists. The show was entertaining, but very CHEESY! I thought it was funny, but my niece kept looking at me like "why are we here?". Overall it was a good way to spend some time, but it is nothing like a traditional hawaiian luau or show.

The show was a great mixture of signing, dancing, and various other talents, such as fire dancing. There was never a dull moment! This is perfect for families, couples, and large groups visiting. We only enjoyed the Rockin' Show and I wish we had sprung for the Laua or Stageside VIP package!
