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.

This show has no continuity. It starts with Hawaii in the 20’s and goes through the 70’s and then goes to Michael Jackson and an unknown (to us)female singer. We bought our tickets online 24 hours in advance, so there was a discount of $20. We paid $49 for the show only. It’s an older theater, but all of the seats are good. The show starts out very lively, the band is excellent. The Elvis impersonator is pretty good, however his finish was stronger than his beginning. When Michael Jackson comes out the Hawaii vibe ends. The MJ impersonator is a great dancer, as are the other dancers in the show. There is a female singer that holds the microphone so close to her mouth, that you can’t understand her. Then at the end they throw a Fire Dancer in, he is great, but it’s just not cohesive. The Band is excellent, but I would save your money. You can find some free music on Waikiki Beach that would probably be more enjoyable.
