My son lured me out to Hawaii with tickets to a Jimmy Buffett concert for my Father's Day present, and was it ever worth it! The concert was held at the shell on a perfect Hawaiian night, complete with the full moon in a cloudless...More

The Waikiki shell is a horrible venue because we went to see Jackson Browne last night and they actually turned off a song in the middle of his finale song because it was 10pm which is the sound curfew. How tacky to an honored, longtime...More

Wonderful venue for music or plays in park at east end of Waikiki. 2000 Seats are up close and inexpensive lawn seating often available last minute for up to 6000 in rear. Nice acoustics on beautiful lawn near the ocean, with cooling breezes. Swaying palm...More

We traveled specifically to Waikiki to catch an evening concert here. Acoustics were great, the scenery breath taking, warm breeze, palm trees blowing, starry skies...I don't think there's going to be a bad seat anywhere.

Although this venue is old, nothing is old about enjoying great live entertainment in a historic outdoor amphitheater under the stars. The weather was extremely muggy, but I still loved coming back to this place to hear some of Hawaii's greatest musicians.
