Burn'n Love Waikiki

Six nights a week at the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber, the Magic of Polynesia Showroom heats up with the singing and dancing of Leo Days as Elvis Presley in Burn'n Love Waikiki.

After having found great success in Maui (where it continues to show), Burn'n Love was brought to Waikiki over the summer, entertaining fans of all ages.

Our entire family went to watch Burn'n Love Waikiki recently. 

While we waited for the show to start, trivia was shown on screen, and the kids were excited when we all got bags of popcorn to munch on.  Drinks could also be ordered throughout the show.

The show started off with Elvis descending from above, and the first set of songs reflected his first concert in Hawaii in 1957 - All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, and Love Me Tender - to name a few.

Subsequent sets included Elvis' Pearl Harbor Concert in 1961 (Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, GI Blues, etc.); Elvis' Three Films in Hawaii from 1961-66 (Blue Hawaii, Return to Sender/Rock-A-Hula Baby Medley, Hawaiian Wedding Song); Elvis's Aloha from Hawaii Concert in 1973 (e.g. Suspicious Minds, Little Sister, Burning Love).

The crowd was singing along, shaking their heads to the beat, and at times screaming with excitement during the performance!

Elvis would come out into the audience and give swooning ladies his lei or scarf, and he had a great sense of humor as well.

You could tell that Leo is a huge fan of Elvis - his singing and dancing was fantastic!

Between sets old footage was shown on screen and recordings of interviews were played, and a back-up singer and dancers kept the crowd entertained.

The entire production was great - from the backup dancers and singers, the live band, the sets, and of course, Leo - everyone helped to create a show that was lively, energetic, and nostalgic.

Because the show started a little after 8:30pm, and my kids are usually in bed by 8pm, my younger two kids were sleepy, and they also thought the music was too loud.

However, my oldest son really enjoyed the show, and even got up to dance with the rest of the audience during Come on Everybody.

Burn'n Love Waikiki is a very family-friendly show - there were several other kids in attendance.  My kids were not very familiar with Elvis Presley, but they are now!

Leo Days was an awesome Elvis, and because of him I still have Elvis Presley songs stuck in my head!
