ABBA (kinda) comes to Nashville
ABBA is one of those groups that enjoys cult status. Even though the group hasn’t performed in nearly 25 years, their music has enjoyed numerous periods of renewed, or growing, interest. Numerous tribute bands and covers have kept the spirit of the band alive, and the hit musical-turned-film Momma Mia! is constructed around the groups music. On May 12, 2015, the Nashville Symphony is bringing ABBA to Nashville! Well, “ABBA The Concert: A Tribute to ABBA,” anyway!
“ABBA The Concert” is a production of 21st Century Artists, Inc., which has been presenting various ABBA tribute shows—including ABBA The Music, ABBA The Concert, and ABBA The Hits—for over a decade. According to the Nashville Symphony, “audiences all agree: this is the closest to ABBA you’ll ever get.” And the show’s performance proves that there are some HUGE ABBA fans out there. “ABBA The Concert” has played to sold out shows at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, Chicago’s Highland Park, and other, more intimate venues.
So whether you are an ABBA megafan, or just fell in love with Mamma Mia!, you really must visit the Nashville Symphony’s engagement of “ABBA The Concert.” It may be a long time before you have another opportunity to see the “top ABBA tribute group in the world” playing all of the songs you just can’t help but love, and know by heart, songs like “Mamma Mia,” “S.O.S,” “Money, Money, Money,” “The Winner Takes All,” “Waterloo,” “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,” and “Dancing Queen.”
“ABBA The Concert” will appear at the Nashville Symphony on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, or information about the Symphony’s other performances, visit www.nashvillesymphony.org.
