Thank ABBA For The Music

Thank ABBA For The Music

Details

Grab your platforms and flares for a journey back in time to when ABBA dominated the charts and ruled the airwaves. Featuring all of ABBA's greatest and most memorable hits, Thank ABBA For The Music is the ultimate feel good, party style tribute concert.

This two-hour theatre spectacular really does capture all the magic and excitement of one of the world's most successful and entertaining live bands. With superb vocals and clever ABBA trademark harmonies throughout, stunning replica stage costumes, a light sprinkling of tongue-in-cheek Swedish humour and plenty of audience participation, you're sure to be having the time of your life!

The band is backed throughout by interactive video projection which, at regular points throughout the show, depicts key moments throughout ABBA's musical career together with clips of interviews from celebrities and music experts alike.

All of ABBA's greatest hits are here including Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Take A Chance On Me, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), Knowing Me Knowing You, Does Your Mother Know, Fernando, The Winner Takes It All, Super Trouper, Lay All Your Love On Me, Chiquitita and many, many more.

ABBA and 70’s fancy dress is optional (but certainly adds to the fun) …

"A fabbatastic night out" Times & Star

"Never felt so close to the real ABBA" Nicky Stevens of Brotherhood of Man (winners of Eurovision Song Contest 1976)

"You were amazing" The Sage Gateshead
