Lancaster Grand Theatre will race back to the 1970s this week with Waterloo – The Best of Abba Tribute Show.

Director-producer James Baker brings this brand new touring show celebrating the music of one of the best-selling groups of all time – Abba – to the venue on Thursday, March 26.

In 1974 the little-known Swedish pop group Abba swept to superstardom with their Eurovision winning ‘Waterloo’.

Abba broke up in 1982, but the group’s music later enjoyed a fresh burst of popularity through films such as Muriel’s Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

In 1999 the hits of the Swedish superstars were developed into a stage show Mamma Mia and that later spawned a blockbuster movie.

Abba has sold more than 380m albums and singles worldwide – and counting – making them the second best-selling music group of all time

They were honoured at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, when smash-hit Waterloo was chosen as the best song in the competition’s history

This new tribute show looks back at the sensational rise to stardom of Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid and gives fans the opportunity to experience the thrill of a live Abba show..

The unique Abba sound is replicated with an incredible attention to detail by a live cast and band – with stunning costumes and breath-taking choreography.

Tickets cost £18. Box office 01524 64695. The show starts at 7.30pm.
