ABBA MANIA the tribute takes you back in time by recreating one of the world’s finest pop groups in a live stage performance. This highly polished and professional production was created in 1999 and played its first shows in 2000.
In 2002, ABBA MANIA was invited to perform at London’s West End, and played for 18 weeks at the Strand Theatre. In November 2002, the show made its German debut at the Deutsches Theatre Munich where it sold every seat in the house for 21 performances!
In 2003, the show was presented with a prestigious Radio Regenbogen award for the best musical of 2002. Fellow winners that year were Tom Jones and Meatloaf. In the same year, ABBA MANIA toured extensively throughout Europe selling out theatres wherever they performed, including 24 consecutive shows at the Schiller Theatre in Berlin, and Cologne Arena selling 10,000 tickets in one night.
The highlight of 2004 was playing a one-off television special. Viewed by over 11 million people and broadcast throughout Europe, the show celebrated thirty years since ABBA came to prominence with Waterloo (Eurovision 1974). Fellow performers included original members of the ABBA band, stars from the musical Mamma Mia, and even the iconic Bjorn Ulveaus made an appearance.
ABBA MANIA has continued to tour the globe, enjoying great success, with ticket sales for most venues selling out long before the show hits town.
