Mosaic Place to bring “THE SHOW – a tribute to ABBA”, to their stage May 22nd, 2014. THE SHOW has taken the position as the best ABBA tribute show in the world according to the Official International ABBA Fan Club.
THE SHOW was created in 2001 and has since had an impressive 13 year run of worldwide success. With more than 600 concerts in 38 countries and more than 2 million tickets sold THE SHOW has created renewed success for ABBA’s music - something that THE SHOW now celebrates by honoring the 40th anniversary of the Waterloo break through.
”ABBA is loved and well known across the world. From the start we wanted to honour that by creating the perfect illusion of the original ABBA. On THE SHOW’S 40th anniversary tour audiences will experience our vision of what ABBA would look like with modern day technology and lights and still with that fantastic and well known ABBA sound.” says producer Kenneth Svoldgaard.
THE SHOW isn’t just another cheap look-a-like tribute to ABBA. What separates THE SHOW from the pack is the success of recreating the two female singers that not only look like the originals but also sing so much like Agnetha and Anne Frid that even the most critical of fans applaud them. The two singers were cast after they won a big Swedish talent show performing as the ABBA girls and now they bring their talents to the world in THE SHOW.
”One of the most important elements in creating the illusion of ABBA is to use Swedish singers in THE SHOW. They have a specific accent that cannot be faked. We don’t compromise when recreating the authentic ABBA sound.” Kenneth Svoldgaard continues.
The music in THE SHOW is played by the Swedish band Waterloo and backed by members of The National Symphony Orchestra of London. They have performed with big stars like Elvis Costello, Robbie Williams and Sir Cliff Richard.
To further add that original touch to THE SHOW several of the original ABBA musicians appear as guest performers in THE SHOW, something that is unique to this tribute to ABBA. Audiences can look forward to the legendary sax player Ulf Andersson who toured with the original ABBA and co-wrote the musical composition for the hit song I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do with original ABBA member Benny Andersson:
”When I was asked to play in THE SHOW, I immediately accepted because the quality of the show is so high. I enjoy helping to bring the music as close to the original sound as possible. Would you believe that I enjoy touring and playing with THE SHOW almost more than I did with the original ABBA. ABBA’s music has grown on me over the years and has proven its quality. After all these years their songs are still alive and I enjoy them more every day.” says Ulf Andersson
ABBA has deserved its place in music history and today 40 years after their break through their music still lives and grows with more than 2 million records sold every year.
THE SHOW presents a wide variety of ABBA’s Greatest Hits in a 2 hour extravaganza. It is a live concert that lets the audience follow ABBA from before they won the Eurovision and all the way through to their big international success. Among the greatest hits are songs like Waterloo, SOS, Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Money Money Money, Knowing Me Knowing You, sprinkled with several surprises from ABBA’s massive song catalogue.
THE SHOW – A Tribute To ABBA will play at Mosaic Place on Thursday, May 22, 2014. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 1 at 11am and can be purchased at www.mosaicplace.ca, charge by phone at (306) 624-2050 or in person at the Mosaic Place Box Office.
