“On our honeymoon”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

First time in Hawaii. We had such a good time and this was one of our favorite stops. We saw Elvis, he was very good. Steven Tyler, he was excellent. Madonna, She was good. Michael Jackson, he was very good. When it was over you could meet them all and get signatures and pics. It was a very enjoyable evening.

“A Show Stopper”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

This show was not on my list of things to do, however after reading the brochure in the hotel I decided it might be worth a look.
The show was fantastic and the best values was the cocktail show - eat somewhere else - arrive early and save a fortune on the meal, the seating is great throughout the showroom so you will not be disappointed.

“Very professional show”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Show opened with Elvis singing and the hawaiian dancers in ther background. Also singing were Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, and Madonna. All 4 were class acts, the accoustics were great and all seats in theatre gave a good view of the stage.

Overall well worth going to when in Honolulu.

“A really fun and upbeat show”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Legends in Concert

Hawai’i is all about fun in the sun and tropical beauty. But sometimes it’s nice to do something inside. I was lucky enough to enjoy the 75 minute ROCK-A-HULA show by Legends in Concert at the Royal Hawaiian Showroom. The week I went was “Stephen Tyler’s” last week of performing and I was so glad I got to see him during his farewell week. He had the voice, the lips, the swagger and the whole package.

This is a “family-friendly-friendly, live musical celebration and concert experience for all ages! A multimedia, multi-sensory experience that transports guests to the magical times when classic superstars ruled the airwaves and thrilled concertgoers with their creativity and charisma.”

Elvis and Michael Jackson were there that night along with Madonna. Michael’s dance moves were spot on and Elvis was perfect. I wasn’t as fond of Madonna, though that could be because I am not a huge fan of the real Madonna.

The four legends vary so you’ll want to check who is performing when you are in town, but what never changes is the Las Vegas style entertainment. The dancers are top notch, costuming is unbelievable and 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.

I enjoyed the cocktail show, but there are also two levels of dinner shows available.
