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.

If you love shows and want a great evening go to this show it’s so professional and a great theatre with a great sound system, wherever you sit you can see the whole stage. We are from New Zealand and did not know any of the performers however the whole cast put on a show as good as we have seen in Vegas recently. You will not be disappointed it’s happy and fulfilling. We both would go again.

"Was not impressed with the food / service"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed January 13, 2020 NEW
I knew going into this show it wasn't a true Luaus. The show was average and have seen better on Cruise Ships. The service and food was terrible. They advertise a lobster for the VIP package and all you get is 1/2 a lobster tail. Also, the food was late getting to our table and it was cold. It was replaced but by the time we started our main course, people were started to sit down after the buffet version above us. Hard to eat a meal with people looking over you. I complained to the staff and didn't really get anywhere. I was referred to the Hawaii Luaus in regards to a refund and after a few emails (they said they met their requirement) they gave me a $20 discount. To me, if you go, don't get the VIP package. I would suggest another venue if possible.

So we included the buffet with the show which all takes place in the Royal Hawaiian Centre in Waikiki. The food was pretty good and you get one complimentary drink. After that, you walk over to the Theatre for the show, a picture with a Michael Jackson impersonator and then too your seats. The show is really lively with Elvis, Michael Jackson and possible Diana Ross??? Anyway, great show of Hawaii through the decades with good backdrop pictures and great tunes. This lasted about an hour and a quarter then you could have free pictures with the actors afterwards in the lobby.
