We went to VIP dinner and show on the 27 March, this evening was amazing from beginning to end, if visiting Hawaii its a must see, attention to detail was second to none, cocktails on arrival, fantastic meal, the chef came out to chat with everyone. The show itself was amazing, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, the dancers, the fire... More

As a huge Elvis fan, I probably am not the best person to ask about this show. I love Elvis music and movies. The younger Elvis did the better job, but it was a fun show. No complaints from me. The guy that did Steven Tyler was really good, as well. We actually saw this show in February 2014, but... More

I have seen this show 21 years ago when l visited Hawaii for the first time. The show was very entertaining but it was also a little disappointing. We didn't do the dinner just the show which included a drink of your choice. The only performers were Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Elvis and the Hawaiian dancers. It was Lady Gaga... More

What better way to spend my birthday but to party with Elvis the King and MJ the King of Pop. Lady Gaga also joined in the concert. We did the Dinner and Show package through Viator. There is a complimentary cocktail upon arrival, a buffet and hula dancing as part of the preshow entertainment. I also received 2 complimentary vouchers... More

Great show with everyone giving their all, if you are coming to Waikiki don' miss it. Excellent food, wonderful wait staff and performers. Wife's birthday was extra special because their entire team went all out for her! Thanks.

Wow worth every cent of $135us we paid for the VIP dinner experience. We were greeted by Lady Gaga at the front door where we took a photo with her the we were given a free cocktail and appetizers. We were then taken to our table where we were greeted by our waiter Takeshi who was absolutely fantastic. We sat... More

Staff were lovely and accomodating, we booked the buffet dinner and concert package. Plenty of all you can eat Hawaiian food, entertainment while eating, a real party atmosphere. The show was great especially the Michael Jackson performer and plenty of time afterwards for a photo with the Stars. I would highly recommend this tour.

Went to the show expecting great execution of the performance. The cost is 65 dollars,so one would think this will be a great show, NOT!!! The dancers are great, the Michael Jackson performance is great. After that it pretty much tanks. Elvis performance is ok at best,Lady Gaga was terrible. In my opinion, take your money and spend it elsewhere.

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We are glad that you felt our dancers and Michael Jackson Tribute Artist were great. It is unfortunate that the performances by our Lady Gaga and Elvis Tribute Artists did not meet your expectations as we often receive great reviews from our guests regarding our first-rate production, great songs, and vibrant performances.

Music was too loud and drowned out the words of the songs. Michael Jackson was the best of the three, especially his dancing. Elvis just so so and Lady Gaga was awful. Tried to be too sexy. There was one drink included with our tickets to the cocktail show. It was just okay - too much syrup in the Lava... More
