from Rock-A-Hula®
Rock-a-Hula! is a spectacular live concert featuring a "Hawaiian Journey" from 1920's to the present, 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, guests enjoy contemporary popular musical artistry showcased on the same stage as the thrilling historic performers. As a Rock-A-Hula guest, you can expect vivacious live tribute performances from the likes of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson artists as well as hula and Tahitian dancers, a live band, fire knife performances, live Hawaiian vocalists and more.

The 70-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.
