The world's number one Abba Tribute Show celebrates its 25th anniversary show. It has played 7000 shows in 100 different countries. November 29th saw 'Bjorn Again' play in Adelaide at The Adelaide Festival Theatre.
Bjorn Again was created and founded by director and musician Rod Stephen in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia. Staring 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. Openly endorsed by the members of Abba, it's regarded as the most successful tribute band of all time. A highlight of their career was meeting Abbas Benny and Bjorn in Stockholm in 1992.
The tour features all the famous hits loved by all, including 'Waterloo', 'Super Trouper', 'Money Money Money' and 'Mamma Mia'. The audience leapt out of their seats at Bjorn Again's request and followed a dance routine to 'Ring Ring' and competed for the loudest side while singing the hits.
Everybody danced when they sang 'Rock Me' and sang loud and proud to 'Does Your Mother Know'. They came out in three different costume changes that looked very much like the Abba's original attire.
A major highlight was Reeder and Jardine's tribute to Bon Jovi with 'Living on a Player'. It was amazing, sent the crowd wild and left the audience with no voice. The show ended with two favourites 'Dancing Queen' and 'Thank you for the Music'. The crowd cheered and clapped giving them a standing ovation.
