Tickets for Live Events in Hawaii
In addition to its picture-perfect beaches, tropical climate, incredible volcanoes and top-notch resorts, Hawaii is famous for having a remarkable culture all of its own. From its unique traditional art forms like hula dancing, slack-key guitar and ukulele playing to universal performing arts like community theater, symphony orchestras and jazz bands, Hawaii has a wealth of entertainment offerings of interest to its visitors and locals alike.
Honolulu generally presents the widest array of entertainment events in Hawaii. Notable recurring events include the University of Hawaii's Rainbow Warriors football games, which take place at Aloha Stadium, famous as the former home of the NFL's Pro Bowl. The venue is also used for large concerts and events, which in the past have included shows by such big names as Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones and Celine Dion.
The Big Island of Hawaii hosts a number of major annual festivals. The biggest is the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival, held in Hilo the week after Easter. It's a showcase of hula dancing and other Hawaiian cultural traditions. The Big Island Slack Key Guitar Festival is another event dedicated to the islands' musical heritage. The island of Molokai'i also hosts a music festival each year around Labor Day. On Oahu, the Manoa Jazz and Heritage Festival takes place in early fall on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
As Hawaii's capital, Honolulu features a range of big venues, from the Neal S. Blaisdell Center (comprising the Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall and the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena) to the Waikiki Shell, an outdoor theater in Kapiolani Park. The island of Maui has the Maui Theatre and Maui Academy of Performing Arts.
