A Multipurpose event venue within walking distance of Waikiki
A shell shape open air amphitheater with world-famous Diamond Head for backdrop

The Tom Moffatt Waikiki Shell (hereafter Waikiki Shell) is an open-air multipurpose event venue located in the heart of Kapiolani Park, of Oahu, Hawaii.
Located in the east end of Waikiki with the backdrop of Diamond Head, Waikiki Shell is one of the best venues in Hawaii to listen to live music and watch fascinating theatrical performances. The venue is conveniently located within walking distance from the hotels in Waikiki, and is often used for concerts and events by various Japanese artists for tourists.
This magnificent shell-shaped facility provides a sophisticated acoustic stage which is an ideal location for classical, rock, jazz, and reggae concerts. It is also a great venue for twilight concerts to be under the vast night sky and be surrounded by lush greenery.
The venue has a lawn area which local residents seems to prefer as there are no seats and attendees are able to place their picnic blankets and lie back, chill and gaze at the amazing sky above while listening to the music from stage. Some events have booth set-up in this area to have a carnival atmosphere.
