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.

"Rock-a-HOKEY!!!! Not Hula"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 05, 2019 NEW
The first 20 minutes of the show was an extremely quick “history of hula” with a couple of performances that we just didn’t feel like we were getting anything traditional at all. There was something about blonde dancers that didn’t feel authentic at all. After the “intro” part, the rest was all Elvis and Michael Jackson impersonators with dancers in sparkly costumes. Personally, seeing anything Michael Jackson related just gave me an uneasy feeling 😩. We did not feel like the show was what we had hoped for at all. The ONLY part we were impressed with was the fire dancer routine. Our impression is that we should have just gone to a traditional hula show instead. that’s all we really wanted to see. This was a bit disappointing.

EXCELLENT SHOW Vegas style amazing performance, talented singers and dancers! They interact with the floor seats, walking and shaking hands.

Talent and professionalism of the show was top notch great singers and amazing dancers, including the guy who did the fire dance at the end of the show. The venue was nicely situated and within easy walking distance from most of Waikiki. The theater is nicely-suited for the show, and the show was well organized, with time to enjoy each part of the evening without any lulls. We did the VIP stage-side dinner and the food was pretty good.
