Estimates of ABBA’s worldwide sales vary from 300 – 400 million, making them the second most successful band of all time, after The Beatles. The Swedish pop music group formed in Stockholm in 1972 with the name ABBA comprised of the first letters of the member’s names: Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (better known as Frida). Their songs have sold millions worldwide and have spawned the hit Broadway Musical Mamma Mia!”, which Benny and Bjorn co-wrote and co-produced, premiered in London’s West End in 1999 and is still running. The production has spread to many other countries and has enjoyed more than 1,500 performances on Broadway in New York.
The Bee Gees were a British and Australian band that crashed onto the world’s stage in the 70s with the creation of the soundtrack Saturday Night Fever that became an anthem for the decade. The brothers Gibb, consisting of frequent lead vocalist Barry, and the twins, co-lead vocalist Robin, and keyboardist/guitarist Maurice, are in the top five of the most successful recording artists of all time, achieving world-wide record sales in excess of 110 million.
ABBA MANIA AND NIGHT FEVER is the only group worldwide that has the exclusive rights to act, sing and perform as a "Tribute to Abba and Bee Gees.” An Evening with ABBA and Bee Gees is a tribute that not only mimics the 'look”, but has garnered worldwide acclaim for their physical resemblance and amazing voices and harmonies that remind audiences of the beloved era.
