Bjorn Again – the ABBA Experience

At Skycity Theatre in December
Plus Extra Matinee Show Added Due to Popular Demand!

World famous ABBA tribute band ‘Bjorn Again’ will perform all the iconic hits that have made them among the most successful cover tribute bands of all time at SKYCITY Theatre next month.

Shows are scheduled at SKYCITY Theatre on Thursday 21, Friday 22 and Saturday 23 December at 8pm. Plus due to popular demand and huge pre-show sales, there has been an extra show added at SKYCITY Theatre – a matinee on Saturday 23 December at 2:30pm.

In December, SKYCITY will be running some Bjorn Again promotions on site, where customers will have the chance to win limited tickets to the show.

A US Rolling Stone magazine review sums it up “From the note-perfect vocals to the faux-Swedish accents and sequined duds, Bjorn Again’s performance was fabulously flawless.”

And from Benny Anderrson live on Capital Radio, London - “Fans had better make the most out of Bjorn Again because that’s the closest they are going to get to seeing ABBA. ABBA will never reform!”

- Russell Crowe’s wedding (2003)
