BBUC gave this placeMultiple Venues for the artsNeal S Blaisdell Center is located near downtown on Ward Avenue between King and Kapiolani. The Arena seats around 7-8000 depending on event and the Concert Hall around 2100. The arena host events such as concerts, sporting events and the concert hall is home to the Symphony and Hawaii Opera. The Waikiki shell under the same management is located in Kapiolani Park at 2805 Monsarrat Avenue, is similar to The Hollywood Bowl, between stadium seating, the lawn, banquet tables, and the pool area, the bowl can accommodate around 9000. Its great for those balmy evening concerts. My first time seeing Donna Summer was at the Blaisdell Arena in 1979. Small arena compared to most major cities, but these days thats intimate and all with unobstructed views.First to Review
