ABBA's greatest hits to be revived by superstar tribute act
PUBLISHED: 14:00 14 January 2018
A popular tribute act will perform a repertoire of poignant and powerful songs from one of the world's greatest pop bands.
Audiences across Britain and Sweden have basked in the brilliance of tribute act Abba Forever, and an audience in Weston will enjoy a special one-night-only performance this month.
Non-stop choreography, dazzling costumes and stunning visuals will feature in a show which takes theatre-goers on a journey back to the band’s heyday in the 1970s.
The wonderful lyrics penned by Benny and Bjorn are sung in wonderful harmony by all six performers in this two-hour spectacular.
The group, established in 1998, has been recognised as one of the best recreations of Abba live in concert.
Abba was formed in 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
They became on of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1982.
The group won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, giving the country its first triumph in the contest.
The bands hits include Mamma Mia, Honey, Honey, I Have A Dream, Money, Money, Money and Waterloo.
The bands success does not stop with music, as their best tracks have been used to create stage show Mamma Mia and two films featuring Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried and Julie Walters.
Jane Ellis, who performs as Agnetha in the show, said: “I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to perform some of the best songs of all time and tour some of the UK’s most prestigious venues and beautiful theatres.
“Being able to sing some of the greatest songs of all time to an audience who share the love of the music.
“I feel very fortunate in having this opportunity. I love to sing and dance and just perform in general.
“I find the shows so much fun and it is rewarding to see the audience enjoying it too.”
Abba Forever will be at Weston’s Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, on January 25 at 8pm.
