Thankyou for the Music
The Arkaba thanked Abba for the music with 'Bjorn Again's Abba Tribute' on September 1st & 2nd. The night began with the stylings of DJ Hollywood who took the audience back to the 60's and 70's with smooth hits from Mark Holden and The Cassidy Brothers.
Bjorn Again is one of the best tribute acts in the world with Ashley Reeder as Benny Andersson, Helen Nicholson as Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Jamie Jardine as Björn Ulvaeus and Julie Walters and Crystal Hegedis as Agnetha Fältskog.
The audience was pumped and ready for Bjorn Again and filled the dance floor of The Arkaba ready to dance along with the stars. The show began with crowd favourite 'Honey Honey'. They amazed the audience with two sets of Abba hits and three costume changes, but also added a bit of rock. Bjorn & Benny's tribute to Bon Jovi was an unexpected twist, but the crowd loved screaming out Bon Jovi's 'Living on a Player'.
Bjorn Again are known for getting the audience up on their feet and this show was no exception. The crowd danced along and followed Agnetha and Anni-Frid as they taught everyone the dance to 'Ring Ring'. One male fan spent the entire show front and centre dancing and singing along.
As the night moved along, the hits kept coming. They sang 'Hasta Manana' in English, quoting that they have sang it in many languages all over the world. Fans were happy to hear and dance along to 'Lay all your love on me', 'Does your mama know', 'I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do' and 'Gimme Gimme Gimme', but it was Agnetha's rendition of 'Fernando' which stole the crowd. Everyone jumped up to dance to 'Rock Me' and celebrated the music of Abba as the show came close to a close.
As Abba fans, there is one thing we do at the end of a show - we always sing loud to 'Waterloo', we dance hard to 'Dancing Queen' and we say 'Thank you for the music'. Another amazing show by Bjorn Again - this band never disappoints. 5/5 Stars Abba reincarnated.
