ABBA Reunion stars the original ‘Frida’ from London’s West End!
Having taken Europe by storm in 1974 when they won the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo, ABBA went on to top pop charts worldwide for well over a decade.
Their much-loved songs have featured in some of the most popular films of the past 30 years including Muriel’s Wedding and The Adventures of Pricilla, Queen of the Desert.
In 1999, their songs were adapted into the phenomenally successful musical Mamma Mia which has grossed over $2 billion worldwide and introduced a whole new generation to hit songs.
ABBA Reunion is one of Europe’s leading International tribute Shows. Following a four month run in London’s West End, and after a successful four year European tour selling out theatres, stadiums and concert halls, this award winning, critically acclaimed show is in it’s 10th year.
The unique Abba sound is replicated with incredible attention to detail, using a six-piece band featuring electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards and piano, drums and bass guitar.
The lyrics and music penned by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are recreated by all six performers on stage with the main focus on Agnetha and Frida whose differentiating voices helped create that sound.
Superbly accurate vocals, mannerisms, outstanding authentic choreography and a full live-band, combined with stunning replica costumes captivates audiences from the opening refrain to the final sing - along chorus of this two - hour spectacular.
ABBA Reunion gives Abba fans, old and new, the opportunity to once again get together and re-live the addictive Abba phenomenon that swept the airwaves and discos during the 70’s and 80’s in this truly feel good, party style concert. From Waterloo to Dancing Queen, all of the hits are performed with an incredible attention to detail resulting in the perfect Abba look and sound.
