Bursting onto the pop scene in 1972, this Swedish pop group from Stockholm, became one of the most successful groups of all times with hits such as Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me, Knowing Me, Knowing You, and Mamma Mia. It is estimated that their worldwide sales are between 300-400 million, which makes them the second most successful band of all time, with The Beatles coming in at number one. Their fame put Sweden on the charts as part of the mainstream music industry.
The original group was made up of four members, Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and Agnetha Faltskog. Initially known as ‘Bjorn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid,’ the four knew they needed a name that was less clumsy, so they settled on the acronym ABBA by taking the first letter of each of their names. The outstanding artists that perform in this show are spot-on as they take on this legendary group. Their powerful vocals are electrifying as they feature outstanding four-part harmonies, amazing personalities, and unforgettable high-energy dance moves. They provide a perfect mix of early ABBA hits from the ‘70s with their later hits of the ‘80s. You will delight in their modern day reinterpretation of classic hits. As the cast leads you along on a nostalgic journey with their music, you will also learn fascinating facts about ABBA, including where they all are today. All mixed in with a bit of humor along the way.
Performing in God and Country Theater, which has two theaters in one facility on the famous Branson strip, this show has an unbelievable live band and incredible lighting effects, while offering some of the most comfortable seating in Branson!
