ABBA MANIA Hits New Zealand

IF YOU LOVED MAMMA MIA, YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE ABBA MANIA


THE WEST END SENSATION
ABBA MANIA HITS
NEW ZEALAND

THE BEST ABBA SHOW SINCE ABBA


After a highly successful run on London’s West End and record-breaking seasons throughout Europe, South America and Australia, ABBA MANIA is about to take over New Zealand from October 8.

ABBA MANIA is a spectacular musical event recreating on stage the last ever live concert by the Swedish disco sensation ABBA in 1979, including over two hours of uplifting, dance inducing hit songs, such as “Dancing Queen”, “Mamma Mia”, Voulez Vous”, “Waterloo”, “Fernando, “Take A Chance On Me”, “Super Trouper” and “The Winner Takes It All”.
recreating the last ever live concert

ABBA MANIA brings to life the 70’s era with vibrant costumes, extravagant lighting and all the endearing memories of the band that took over the disco world in one unforgettable night.

Who would have ever guessed that the little known group ABBA, winners of the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, would make such an indelible mark on the pop scene with their smash hit single “Waterloo”. ABBA dominated the charts for nearly ten years and became Sweden’s highest export earners, amazingly outselling Volvo cars.

In the early eighties ABBA disbanded and went their own ways, but the success of their album ABBA Gold continued, topping the charts well into the 90’s. In fact it still remains one of the biggest selling albums ever.

ABBA MANIA was formed in 1999 and has been touring the world non-stop ever since. As well as pleasing the original ABBA fans, ABBA MANIA has created a whole new audience ensuring the musical legacy will live on for future generations.

Featuring the ABBA Orchestra, ABBA MANIA is the perfect excuse to party, reminisce or simply be entertained by the best music there has ever been. Catch ABBA MANIA live at:
