Mania The ABBA Tribute Comes To The Warner
A night for all you dancing queens
Wednesday, Feb. 1
Break out the sequin suits and the platform boots because the songs from Swedish supergroup ABBA are coming to the Warner Theatre. Mania The ABBA Tribute (formally ABBA Mania) are an internationally touring tribute act that have been performing the music of ABBA since 1999. Their live performances include a full stage show with costume changes, lighting, and effects, taking you back to the time of disco balls, bell bottoms, and feathered hair.
ABBA originally went on hiatus in 1982, even though there wasn't an official announcement of a break or an end to the group; their dissolution is considered to have happened after ABBA's last public performance on Dec. 11, 1982. ABBA's last world tour was between 1979 and 1980, where they performed 52 shows in 40 cities across 13 countries. They have only recently returned as live avatars in ABBA Voyage, an immersive live digital concert performance with visuals by George Lucas' company, Industrial Light & Magic.
Over the years their music has solidified ABBA as pop royalty, with their songs being used on singing programs, commercials, not to mention the hit musical and film Mama Mia, which was inspired by the songs of ABBA. Mania The ABBA Tribute brings you two hours of ABBA's hit songs and a few fan-favorites as well. Songs like their breakthrough hits "Waterloo," "Fernando," "Take A Chance On Me," "The Winner Takes It All," "Mama Mia," and "Dancing Queen" are performed with utmost respect to the source material.
