“A night of enjoyable entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Based on other reviews we decided to only attend the show itself. The cost was $59 p.p. and included one drink. The booking office opens at 12:30 p.m. and is closed on Monday as there is no show on that night.

The show itself went for nearly 90 minutes with impersonations of Elvis, Madonna, Britney Spears and Michael Jackson. The artists were supported by a very professional band.

I liked the show and appreciated the effort and professionalism that the artists put into their performances. It was an enjoyable night out.

“Legends in Concert - fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We bought the green room package which included a visit to backstage green room where we were greeted by lovely staff and had champagne and canapes. Then 'Madonna' popped in to say Hi and we had pics taken with her. Then had more of a backstage tour and on the stage with the guide being very informative of the show....we were allowed to take pics backtage but not during the show. Then we were seated front row with a table for two and then 3 course dinner. The food was lovely but it was all served fairly quickly as we had to be finished before the show started. We were allowed to buy alcohol before the show but not during so if you want to drink buy a bottle of wine....which we did. Then the show started at 8pm and went until about 9.20pm and it was fantastic!....Madonna, Brittany and Michael Jackson were pretty good but Elvis stole the show!....he as brilliant!....the costumes and band were great and we were so chuffed when Elvis came down to shake our hands and then later on we had a pic taken with him....was so worth the money!

“elvis is alive!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

though this wasnt the best show i have ever seen it was worth a visit....im glad elvis was there as he kept the show upbeat and fast moving with all the dancers etc. we also had britney spears, madonna and michael jackson. all good but i also thought the show wasn't really long enough just over an hour. it is all set up very well with an option for backstage passes to meet them with food included or you can just see the show.

“Rock a Hula & Legends in Concert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Saw the show last Saturday. Did the show with Terrace Dining. Meal was fabulous with good choices and a lovely location with prime seating in the theatre for the actual show. You get to sit in the front 2 rows . Theatre is excellent , with no bad seating regardless of where sitting. Seat comfortable and plenty of leg room. Band, back up singers and dancers you could not fault. We went because of the Elvis impersonator and he was fabulous. Am a big Elvis fan. Loved his music and his part in the show. Disappointed in the other impersonators as had Brittany Spears, Madonna & Michael Jackson. I am not a fan of any of their music. Would suggest to anyone else booking, check who is is featuring in the show in case you do not like their music. Rock a Hula show I thought would feature more music from the 50's 60's & 70's. Maybe Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash or Elton John would be better. Loved the night out overall but would have preferred more Rock and Roll music.

“Pretty damn good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

My wife and I are veterans of most of the shows in Vegas and would rate this one highly. The stairs to the theater are a bit odd but lead to a nice smallish theater where there are no bad seats.
Entertainers were quite talented and the show had a nice pace. Didn't do the meal so can't comment there but would recommend this show. Look around for a discount deal on the tickets and have fun.
