Tickets on sale now for hits-heavy tribute to two classic groups

The world’s longest-running tribute show to Swedish four-piece Abba is coming to the county with three shows at our theatres.

Now celebrating the 40th anniversary of the huge hit Dancing Queen, the number one 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.

Remarkably, says show producer Michael Taylor, it has been touring for longer than the band were together during the 1970s and 80s.

He explained: “Combining Lycra-tight harmonies with superb musicianship, 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.”

The set list includes 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 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.

The show plays at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury on July 11, Margate’s Winter Gardens on August 13 and at the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on September 16.

Tickets at all venues are available now.
