Following a four-month run in London’s West End, Strand Theatre in 2001 and successful International tours selling out theatres, stadiums and concert halls, Abba mania is now set to sweep into Lincolnshire with The Abba Reunion Tribute show at Grimsby Auditorium in September.
From the director, producer and choreographer of the award-winning Abba Mania musical and starring the original Frida from London’s West End, the this is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed Abba show.
The four real members of Abba have been saying for years that they will never reform.
So with this in mind, the producers of this show, The Reunion Group, decided that they would give the fans the next best thing and not just another Abba tribute band.
Now in it’s 10th year, the show has become Internationally recognised as one of the top world-class authentic Abba experiences.
They have toured and sold out numerous prestigious UK theatres, plus theatres in India, Norway, France, Holland, Sweden.
Tours to East Africa, Latvia, Belgium, Germany, and Australia are in place for this year and next.
“The Abba Reunion Tribute Show gives Abba fans, old and new, the opportunity to once again get together and re-live the addictive Abba phenomena that swept the airwaves and discos during the 70’s and 80’s in a truly feel good party style concert,” said The Reunion Group.
“From Mamma Mia to Dancing Queen, all of the hits are performed with unrivalled authenticity from both an audio and visual perspective complete with live band.”
There is a huge focus on the 1977 and 1979 live world tour footage plus the iconic pop video looks that feature the famous flamboyant costumes and dance moves.
This year also sees a recreation finale of the Eurovision-winning song, Waterloo.
Visually, the performers are transformed into the famous four Abba members by using top-of-the-range professionally-made wigs, make-up and handmade replica costumes.
Each character has been studied by means of video clips, both live and studio performance, to mimic the movements and mannerisms enabling a more true to life presentation of how Abba really were.
Meticulous scrutiny and strict vocal tutoring have been applied to recreating the voices of Abba, especially the major differentiating qualities of the two female voices of Agnetha and Frida, who together, make the legendary Abba sound.
Musically, careful attention to detail has been employed to create the complete Abba facsimile using only professional industry musicians.
The result is an award-winning show that has delighted the critics.
The show is at Grimsby Auditorium on 26th September at 7.30pm.
