The ultimate tribute show to ABBA comes to Sheffield next week.
ABBA The Show visits Sheffield City Hall on Thursday 1st December and organisers have teamed up with the Guardian to offer three lucky readers a pair of tickets each.
Now celebrating 10 years of touring, ABBA The Show is much more than just a tribute concert and has had phenominal success around the world.
Featuring ABBA’s original saxophone player Ulf Andersson, and Sweden’s world renowned ABBA tribute band Waterloo, the show charts the ABBA story from their Eurovision beginnings to becoming one of the most successful pop groups of all time.
Ulf Andersson played the famous saxophone solo in I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do, and he’ll be doing it again next week when the show hits Sheffield.
ABBA The Show has performed more than three times as many shows as the original ABBA and for more than two million people.
It has had phenomenal success around the globe reaching audiences in India, Spain and the USA, climaxing with a sold-out performance at the famous Hollywood Bowl.
The world premiere of the new production in September 2007 held at London’s Royal Albert Hall received rave reviews
The biggest show was in Sao Paolo and was infront of nearly 70,000 people.
The show packs ABBA’s greatest hits into a two hour musical extravaganza.
The story kicks off at the tail-end of the 60s when Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida meet to play together for the first time.
Throughout the course of the production, the audience is led on a magical journey through the rise and rise of ABBA, taking in all their classic songs along the way, such as Waterloo, SOS, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Money Money Money and Knowing Me Knowing You.
