ABBA Reunion to take place in July

Fans of the wildly popular ABBA could be in for a treat when heading to the Isle of Wight next month, as the 1970s superstars will be showcased for fans at the Shanklin Theatre.

Taking place on July 12th and getting underway from 19:30 BST, the show has been created by the original director, producer and choreographer of the Award Winning Abbamania West End musical and promises to be evening to remember for fans of the band.

Musical numbers ranging from Waterloo to Dancing Queen will be performed on the night, with the original 'Frida' of the London cast taking part.

A feel-good affair all round, visitors will be taken on a musical journey through the band's catalogue of hits, as they re-live the disco scene of the 1970s and '80s with one of the most influential groups of their era.

Tickets can be booked from the Shanklin Theatre box office and will cost £18, with all those keen to book their place urged to act quickly as seats on the night will be limited.

ABBA formed in 1972, with members Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anna-Frid using their initials to form the name of the band. They shot to fame at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, when they gave Sweden their first ever victory in the competition with Waterloo.

The group went on to have hit after hit over the coming years, becoming one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of pop.

Meanwhile, music fans heading to the island next month might also like to check out the popular Stompin' Dave's Blues3 event, which will be taking place at Quay Arts on July 5th.

Tickets will cost £14 and guests will be treated to performances by three of the biggest names in UK jazz - Stompin' Dave Allen, Earl Jackson and Sam Kelly.

The show will start at 19:00 and is set to include renditions of many blues and roots classics by the skilful trio of musicians.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801603332-ADNFCR
