Following a 4-month run in London’s West End, Strand Theatre in 2001 with successful International tours selling out theatres, stadiums and concert halls, this award winning, critically acclaimed Abba Tribute performer, producer, choreographer and director together with The Reunion Group, created “The Abba Reunion Tribute Show”.
The 4 real members of ABBA have been saying for years that they will never reform so with this in mind the producers (The Reunion Group ) decided that they would give the fans the next best thing! Not just another ABBA Tribute band.
Now in its 12th year, this is the most requested authentic recreation of how ABBA really were, live in concert, in the world today.
“The Abba Reunion Tribute Show” gives ABBA fans, old and new, the opportunity to once again get together and re-live the addictive ABBA phenomenom that swept the airwaves and discos during the ‘70s and ‘80s in a truly feel good party style concert.
From Mamma Mia to Dancing Queen, all 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 sees a jaw dropping recreation finale of the Euro vision winning song, Waterloo, including a huge balloon drop, plus at various venues local school choirs will feature on stage joining in with the well-known hit, I Have A Dream, which the real ABBA did Live in Concert in 1979.
Visually, the performers are transformed into the famous four ABBA members, Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Anni-Frid (Frida) 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 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 2 female voices of Agnetha and Frida who, together, make the legendary ABBA sound. From a musical stand point, again, careful attention to detail has been employed to create the complete ABBA facsimile using only professional industry musicians.
In such a hugely over-saturated ABBA tribute market, quality, commitment, reputation and professionalism are of major importance when booking to see a show. With these factors in mind you can be totally assured that this band perform their superb replica concert show to the highest standards possible, making them ‘better than their rivals Bjorn Again’ according to the Express and Star.
