What to do and see in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands: The Best Concerts & Shows

May 17, 2022 Oliva Fomby

Welcoming, tolerant Gran Canaria offers a little something for everyone. Families flock to the water parks and beaches of Puerto Rico. Those seeking peaceful escape scamper to Mogan's quiet fishing villages. Gay visitors crowd the bars, restaurants and beaches of Playa del Ingles. Urban attractions are on offer in Las Palmas. Three highways open up the island for those with a rental car or a bus schedule. Prime sites to visit include Iglesia de San Juan Bautista de Arucas and Palmalitos zoo park.

Fantastic night out!! Laughed from start to finish, the girls are amazing and put on one hell of a show.. Lots of costume changes, great songs to sing along to and we had a great night.. The guys do a fab job, running about getting everyone's drinks.. The cocktails are nice, but if you want something really yummy - try the trifle shot - It was perfection!! We will be visiting again, as we enjoyed it that much.. This is an adult show, with swearing and sexual themes - If you are offended easily, go somewhere else.. More seats for those of us who enjoy this fabulous art..

Auditorio Alfredo Kraus

Reviewed By MelvynE569 - Godalming, United Kingdom

THis is my favourite concert hall among all those I have visited - which include Carneigie, Royal Festival, Albert, Vienna Musikverein, Concertgebouw, Geneva Victoria Hall, Valencia. No bad seats. Great acoustic. Excellent seat prices and reductions for retired people. Superb classical concerts from a first rate local orchestra as well as a magnificent festival attracting international stars such as Lang Lang, Murray Perahia, Juan Diego Florez etc. And you can walk to it along the beach! The crowning glory of a magnificent island. (Look at Teatro Perez Galdos as well....) Of course, the place is about CONCERTS (they also do pop and jazz) but if your visit is too short a guided tour is worthwhile, interesting and well done. Of course, you have to have an interest in such things or an open mind, but the guides make it all very accessible and pleasant.

Moonlight Cinema

Great movies, under the stars. Europe's only permanent outdoor cinema. Enjoy the magic of the big screen, under the magic of the stars, and where better than in the warmth of Gran Canaria. 2 films show each night, starting at sunset. With luxury sofas, blankets and waitress service serving freshly prepared pizza, popcorn and nachos you´re guaranteed a fantastic night.

This cinema is a must when in Gran Canaria. I emailed ahead of our arrival to explain we had visited a few years ago on the day we got engaged. Scott remembered us and was the perfect host who reserved the same seat we had back then :) Comfy settees and warm blankets along with attentive staff, amazing pizza and great prices make this a fantastic night out! You will not be disappointed. Massive Thanks to Scott, another fab night :) See you soon :)

My mum and dad, in their eighties, wanted to thank Aurora for the magical tour she gave of the theatre. The tour lasted an hour and a half and they have raved about is since. Aurora talked not only about the history of the theatre but also of Las Palmas. Highly commended and thanks again to Aurora.

Ricky's Cabaret Bar

The longest running Cabaret Show Bar in the Yumbo Centre. Located on the Ground Floor in the corner next to Burger King. Show time is at 10:30pm, but best to be in earlier to get the full Ricky's experience and be guaranteed getting the best seats in the house. Karaoke available every night with dances, games and giveaways throughout the night.
