William Shatner among many celebrities to appear at Big Island concert series

WAIKOLOA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Big Island residents and visitors will get a chance to see the stars on December 28. Hollywood celebrities Rob Schneider, Joan Rivers, Randy Travis, Bill Maher and Brian Evans will launch the "Big Island Celebrity Series" as Brian croons the night away with a special appearance by Star Trek icon -- Captain Kirk himself -- the legendary William Shatner.

It will be the only concert series on the island -- which will be hosted monthly at the Hilton Waikoloa Village -- with superstar names. Mos Def has also agreed to perform in 2014 during the series.

The series, once known as "The Maui Celebrity Series," became "The Big Island Celebrity Series" last week when Brian Evans and Enrique Grullon decided to bring the show to Kona. More than a dozen concerts were held on Maui in Lahaina at The Maui Theatre prior to the move to The Big Island.

"The Big Island Celebrity Series" producers Brian Evans and Enrique Grullon joined Grace on the "Sunrise" couch for a sneak peek of the series.
