ABBA The Concert is the live two hour musical extravaganza celebrating Sweden’s most famous band. ABBA has sold more than 370 million records worldwide and inspired the phenomenally popular Broadway musical, Mamma Mia! ABBA The Concert follows the quartet through songs from their Eurovision beginnings in 1974 hits such as "Dancing Queen" and "S.O.S." It has sold out shows around the world in prestigious venues including the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and the Royal Albert Hall in London.
ABBA The Concert was formed in 1996 and has always featured an original member of the ABBA rhythm section including legendary bass guitarist Mike Watson, guitarists Mats Ronander, Lasse Wellander and Janne Schaffer and drummers Ola Brunkert and Roger Palm. The Swedish band ABBA formed in 1970 with Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Anderson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog. They achieved international success as one of the best-selling pop groups in history. The music of ABBA has proved its staying power through the Broadway musical Mamma Mia!, still a worldwide favorite which was made into a feature film starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan in 2008. Mamma Mia! continues to be a crowd favorite and has played the Orpheum Theatre five times.
