ABBA Mania returns to The Mendel Center

ABBA Mania returns to The Mendel Center on Halloween

“Beware of imitations…this is the real musical tribute!”– Polly Graham, Sunday Mirror

 

ABBA fans are in for a Halloween treat when The Mendel Center in Benton Harbor, Michigan, welcomes back the musical tribute ABBA MANIA to the Mainstage on Sunday, October 31, 2021, at 7 pm. Concert goers are encouraged to get into the Halloween spirit by dressing up in their disco finest.

 

ABBA MANIA formed in 1999 and the show has been selling out theatres and concert halls internationally ever since. This show has toured the world in its quest to bring the music of the Swedish ‘supergroup” to their millions of fans, old and new!

 

ABBA MANIA has previously grossed over Aus $1 million at the box office in Sydney, Australia. The show has ventured to France, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, and South Korea, as well as touring the UK extensively.

 

ABBA MANIA recently toured the United States for the tenth time with a magnificent 37 date national tour, selling over 50,000 tickets and visiting 15 states. 

 

Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid, collectively known as ABBA, dominated the charts for nearly ten years and enjoyed nine UK number one hits. At their height, they became Sweden’s biggest export earners, amazingly, outselling Volvo cars. Sadly, in the early eighties, they decided to go their separate ways, but their music lives on. ‘ABBA Gold’ was continuously in the album charts throughout the nineties and is one of the biggest selling albums ever.

 

ABBA’s timeless songs were written to be enjoyed live and ABBA MANIA gives you exactly that.  Two hours of uplifting, dance inducing and sometimes heart-breaking songs, fully live with fantastic staging, lighting and effects. The show recreates ABBA’s sound not only perfectly, but respectfully too. ABBA MANIA is not only for life long, die hard ABBA fans but the new generation of fans, who never had the opportunity to see ‘ABBA’ live. Hits include “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” “Mamma Mia,” “The Winner Takes it All,” “Super Trouper,” “Fernando” “Take A Chance On Me,” and many more that continue to fill dance floors worldwide.
