Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid, collectively known as ABBA, dominated the charts for nearly ten years and enjoyed nine UK number 1 hits. In the early eighties, they decided to go their separate ways, but their music lives on. The original tribute from London’s West End, ABBA MANIA delivers two hours of uplifting, dance inducing and sometimes heart-breaking songs, fully live with incredible staging, lighting and effects. The show recreates ABBA’s sound not only perfectly, but respectfully too. ABBA MANIA is not only for life long, die hard ABBA fans but the new generation of fans, who never had the opportunity to see ABBA live. Hits include “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” “Mamma Mia,” “The Winner Takes it All,” “Super Trouper,” “Fernando,” “Take A Chance On Me” and many more.
