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

We traveled from the Big Island just to see Jackson Browne. The Waikiki Shell is a wonderful venue. However, when they "pulled the plug" and stopped the music in the middle of his encore, it was very disappointing for his fans and I'm sure a...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
