The world’s longest-running ABBA concert show is coming to the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds at 7.30pm on April 9 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Swedish super group’s biggest selling hit – Dancing Queen.
Thank You for the Music features not just the titular song, but many more from ABBA’s nine number one singles, nine chart-topping albums and 19 top 20 singles in the UK, including Super Trouper, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Knowing Me Knowing You and, of course, Dancing Queen.
The production is now in its 23rd year. Show producer Michael Taylor boasts that the spectacle has been delighting live music fans for longer than Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida did during the 70s and 80s.
“Combining Lycra-tight harmonies with superb musicianship,” he says, “Thank You for the Music has outlasted ABBA in their prime.
“Dancing Queen represents the pinnacle of the group’s career, and we have produced a brand-new show rocking the sound of “the right music” for 2016.”
