abbamania-wideshot

abbamania at Tuacahn is do not miss for ABBA fans.

 

Friday, March 21,  7:30 PM MST

The world’s number one touring ABBA tribute concert, “ABBAMANIA” has been delighting sold-out audiences of all ages since 1999. This show has toured the world in its quest to bring the music of the Swedish super group to their millions of fans, old and new.

ABBA’s timeless songs were written to be enjoyed live and “ABBAMANIA” gives you exactly that, two hours of uplifting, dance-inducing, and sometimes heart-breaking songs, fully live with fantastic staging, lighting and effects. The show recreates ABBA’s sound not only perfectly, but respectfully, too. “ABBAMANIA” is not only for life-long, die-hard ABBA fans but for the new generation of fans, who never had the opportunity to see ABBA live. Hit after hit includes “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” “Mamma Mia,” “The Winner Takes it All,” “Super Trouper,” “Fernando,” “Take A Chance On Me” and many more memorable songs that continue to fill dance floors and theatres worldwide.

“Outstanding…ABBAMANIA had done an even better job than our originals…They nailed the voices, the accents, and most importantly, the vibe. Close your eyes and it could have been ABBA.”-Sky News, 2007
