Abba fans can look forward to a Happy New Year with the announcement that Thank You For The Music is coming to the Crewe Lyceum Theatre on February 27 at 8pm.
The world’s longest-running Abba concert show is coming to town to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Swedish super group’s biggest selling hit – Dancing Queen.
The song was a million-selling number-one hit in 13 countries and it forms the climax to the international hit stage show Thank You for the Music. 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, Thank You for the Music has outlasted Abba in their prime,” he said. “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.”
The set list, drawn from ABBA’s nine number one hit singles, nine chart-topping albums and 19 top 20 singles in the UK, includes solid-gold hits like Super Trouper; Waterloo; Mamma Mia; Thank You for the Music; Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; Knowing Me Knowing You; Mamma Mia and, of course, Dancing Queen.
Tickets £20. Call 01270 368 242 or visit lyceumtheatre.net for details.
