HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Known for hits like "Celebration", "Get Down On It", "Cherish" and "Ladies Night"; Kool & The Gang will be in concert tonight at the Blaisdell Arena.  Doors open at 7:00pm, Music starts at 8:00pm.  Kool & The Gang formed in 1964 and are still going strong!

Tickets sold out in just 20 minutes -- those lucky to score tickets to Amy Schumer's impromptu show in Waikiki definitely got some laughs last night.  The comedian performed at Blue Note Hawaii for a "pop-up" comedy show with fellow comedian Wanda Sykes.  They were at Hawaiian Brian's on Sunday night. This is video of Sykes posted on her Facebook page -- yesterday walking at the Makapu'u Lighthouse.  All proceeds from the last night's show went to the Windward Spouse Abuse Shelter. 

Sir Peter Shaffer has died at the age of 90.  He wrote “Amadeus” and “Equus” which he won Tony Awards for.  Both plays ran for more than 1,000 performances.  Schaffer had a twin brother Anthony who wrote the two-man play “Sleuth,” and the screenplays to Hitchcock’s “Frenzy” and the 1973 horror film “The Wicker Man.”

Daniel Dae Kim will be a Presenter at the 70th Annual Tony Awards.  "Commands Stage", "Dazzling", and "New Luster" are just some of the words being used when describing Daniel's performance on Broadway in the "King and I" at Lincoln Center.  Daniel started on May 3, and just announced; he will be the last King of Siam to lead this beautiful production closing on June 26.  You can actually watch him take Broadways most prestigious stage this Sunday, June 12th on KGMB.

We showed a video this morning:  It's great when apps and electronic devices work well, but Pashyn Santos wanted to make it, well....a little more local.
