ABBA Mania, the world’s number one touring ABBA tribute concert, returns to The Mendel Center Mainstage in Benton Harbor on Friday, January 24, 2020, at 8 pm
ABBA Mania formed in 1999 in London’s West End and the show has been selling out theatres and concert halls internationally ever since. This show has toured the world in its quest to bring the music of the Swedish “supergroup” to their millions of fans, old and new.
ABBA Mania has been seen by more than 3 million people across the globe - from Australia, France, Denmark, Belgium, and Spain to South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK. In 2018, ABBA Mania toured the US for the eighth time with over 30 shoes over 6 weeks including a prestigious sell out date in the Smith Centre, Las Vega.
Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid, collectively known as ABBA, dominated the charts for nearly ten years. At their height, they became Sweden’s highest export earners, amazingly outselling Volvo cars. Sadly, in the early ‘80s, they decided to go their separate ways, but their music lives on. ABBA Gold was continuously in the album charts throughout the ‘90s and is one of the biggest selling albums ever.
ABBA’s timeless songs were written to be enjoyed live and ABBA Mania gives audiences exactly that. Two hours of uplifting, dance inducing, and sometimes heartbreaking songs, fully live with fantastic staging, lighting, and effects. The show recreates ABBA’s sound perfectly and respectfully. ABBA Mania is not only for lifelong, diehard ABBA fans, but also for the new generation of fans who never had the opportunity to experience 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 that continue to fill dance floors worldwide.
Polly Graham of the Sunday Mirror says, “Beware of imitations…this is the real musical tribute.”
