The ABBA Show


ABBA are Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (Frida).

This groovy foursome were undoubtedly one of the biggest phenomenons in their heyday in the 70's and early 80's.

The girls of ABBA


While the original members of ABBA no longer tour and perform, fans of the group can still see and hear the magic of ABBA by seeing "The ABBA Show", currently playing at the Athenaeum in Melbourne.

The music, the singing, the costumes - the whole performance is just a wonderful thing to see.

Dancing Queens


The show opened with the classic ABBA hit 'The Name Of The Game' and followed with so many ABBA favourites including 'Chiquitita', 'Knowing Me Knowing You', 'Money Money Money', 'Dancing Queen', 'Honey Honey', 'Rock Me' and 'Does Your Mother Know'.



There was a 20-minute interval half way through the show, then the second half began with another costume change and more hits performed including' Super Trouper',' Fernando,' 'Why Did It Have To Be Me', 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)', 'Voulez Vous', 'Mamma Mia', 'Ring Ring', 'Thank you For The Music', 'Waterloo' and 'So Long'.

The encore of 'The Winner Takes it all' was absolutely amazing.

Thank Abba for the music


All in all, this show was a wonderful tribute performance to ABBA and a great way to dance the night away. There was singing, some humour, crowd participation and of course the dancing!
