Burn’n Love Heats Up Waikiki Entertainment Scene
We’re ‘all shook up’ over Waikiki’s newest show! Burn’n Love Waikiki showcases Elvis Presley’s time performing and filming in the islands in the 60s and 70s. Written and performed especially for Hawaii, Burn’n Love captivates audiences of all ages with its dynamic audiovisuals, photos, songs and, of course, signature dance moves. The spirit of Hawaii and Elvis’ iconic flair dance together, successfully for an entertaining evening that can’t be missed!
Nationally recognized Elvis impersonator Leo Days has been doing shows as Elvis since he was 15 years old. Born in Honolulu and an Elvis fan since the age of three, Days’ natural ability and Elvis-like temperament bring something special to the Waikiki show. Having placed in national Elvis competitions, Days captures all aspects of The King of Rock and Roll’s experiences in Hawaii, including his music, movies, and even touches on his contributions to the building of the USS Arizona Memorial in 1961.
“I am so excited to return to Hawaii to carry on Elvis’ legacy and honor his long history and love for Hawaii, with Burn’n Love,” said Leo Days. “Hawaii is such a special place, and I am very grateful to be able to be here and be a part of this amazing production. I can see why Elvis loved it so much here; I do too!”
Elvis was greatly influenced by his time spent here and the show honors this important part of his life. Rated the number one thing to do on Maui by TripAdvisor, Burn’n Love’s Waikiki show transports viewers back to the Hawaii of old, to the nostalgia of hula dancers, Pan Am, and rock and roll. The show also pays tribute to another aspect of Elvis — his philanthropic side. A portion of ticket sales for the Waikiki show will be donated to the Aloha United Way, just as The King would have wanted – celebrating his love for Hawaii and its people.
