(Previously-announced show; tickets are on sale now)
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Oct. 1, 2014) – Mamma Mia, that’s as close to ABBA as it can get! Direct from Sweden, Arrival: The Music of ABBA brings its spectacular tribute show to The Mahaffey Theater Friday, Oct. 24 at 8 p.m.
Based in Gothenburg, Arrival is the only ABBA tribute group authorized to use the legendary pop quartet’s original 1970s costume designs, from the original designer Owe Sandström. And ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson personally gave Arrival an unreleased ABBA song, “Just A Notion,” to perform in the show.
From the costumes and the choreography, to the hairstyles and the hysteria – it’s just like experiencing a stage extravaganza by Scandinavia’s original, million-selling exports.
And the music! Hear “Dancing Queen,” “Mamma Mia,” “Take a Chance on Me,” “Fernando,” “I Do I Do I Do,” “Knowing Me Knowing You” and all the other ABBA classics in an exciting, fun-filled thrill ride of a show!
Tickets are $30, $40 and $50, and may be purchased online at TheMahaffey.com, charge by phone at 727.893.7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office. The Mahaffey Box Office is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday or at least 90 minutes prior to any ticketed event.
