The world’s longest running ABBA concert, Thank You for the Music, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the band’s best selling hit Dancing Queen at Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre November 9.
Dancing Queen 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 – which also features the UK’s most successful Bee Gees revue – 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.
Michael 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 2017”.
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.
Thank You for the Music also features show stealers The Magic of the Bee Gees. The trio, backed by a live band, perform original Bee Gees’ hits like Staying Alive, Massachusetts, Night Fever and How Deep is Your Love as well as million-sellers penned for other artists by the Bee Gees including Islands in the Stream, If I Can’t Have You and Chain Reaction.
Daily Echo said: “Tightly choreographed and a standing ovation… feels like the real thing.”
