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.

We absolutely loved the show. Very entertaining. Hula dancers, fire knife dancer, Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Sienne were great. We did the combo with steak and lobster and the food was good too. My only complaint would be the timing of the food was not coordinated well.

Not a fan of Michael Jackson, so it affected my overall experience. Took the show only option, so cannot address the food. Good seats, good show. Especially enjoyed the slides from "old days". Elvis impersonator good, lady singer outstanding, fire dancer amazing.

"Go for the Show only!"

We read the bad reviews about the Luau portion so we chose to go to the show only and we're not disappointed. The show was great! The band is really tight and they put on a solid professional show that was worth attending. The show is structured to show you the history of visitors coming to Hawaii and walks you through up to modern times with many different songs/dances along the way.

"Rock a Hula Waikiki"

We three Aussie travellers were looking at what we could do for dinner...then a show, we had a friend who said they went and enjoyed a month earlier so we xecided to check it out. The Luau was entertaining and we were given free Mai Tai's to begin then some entertainment and a buffet with pork as the main meat...food was plenty. I thought there may have been a couple more traditional food to choose but overall it filled us up. Following this we went to the show, there was a look at the history and culture in music including Elvis and Michael Jackson impersonators, also the Rock a Hula dancers and a Warror firedancer at the end. All showed their extreme vitality, i saw an older lady sitting at table Elvis came down it brought her to tears. Being a MJ fan iwas impressed, and even enjoyed the twist with the polynesiandancer in one song was very good. Photos, a look at memorabilia at the end. Recommend yes. Thankyou

Celebrated my daughter's 21st on here, and so glad I chose this Luau option. We wanted something more intimate as the outdoor luau options looked too overcrowded. Was not disappointed, food, staff and dancers on point! And the show was the highlight of our night, dancers, singers were amazing and standing ovation to the King of Rock and King of Pop. Had us dancing and singing in our seats all night. I'm so thankful my family were able to create a lasting memory with Rock-a-Hula, Mahalo to the guests who dined with us on 20 June, all helped sing 'Happy Birthday to my daughter.
