ABBA Mania - The Original Tribute from London's West End
Blackpool’s Grand Theatre is delighted to announce its BIG Summer Show for 2018.
Working in partnership with Producer Stuart Littlewood of Handshake, they will present the original tribute from London’s West End ABBA MANIA, for 8-weeks this summer in Blackpool from 17 July - 8 September.
It has now been 31 years since ABBA last toured. As you can imagine, in 1979, requests for tickets far outstripped availability. Two Royal Albert Hall performances receiving 2 million requests for tickets, with only 5000 available. In short, it was the hottest ticket in town.
Today, ABBA MANIA continues to grip the nation with countless tributes on television, radio and of course the hugely popular stage hit and feature film, Mamma Mia! There are no signs that ABBA's popularity is slowing down!
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 played its first shows in 2000.
ABBA MANIA will feature a collection of iconic ABBA hits including; Knowing Me, Knowing You, Chiquitita, The Name Of The Game, Waterloo and SOS.
The show has been presented with a prestigious Radio Regenbogen award for the Best Musical. ABBA MANIA has toured extensively throughout Europe selling out theatres wherever they performed, including 24 consecutive shows in the Schiller Theatre in Berlin, and Cologne Arena.
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.
Handshake Producer, Stuart Littlewood, said ‘We are always excited to hit the Vegas of The North, Blackpool, returning this year for 8-weeks will ensure that once again residents and the millions of tourists Blackpool receives will be entertained with the legendary songs of ABBA. We want to ensure you’re all ‘having the time of your life’.
