The Abba Reunion Tribute Show will be bringing the 40th Anniversary of Waterloo Tour to Hertfordshire later this month – just a couple of weeks after the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In 1974 a then little known Swedish pop group swept to stardom with their Eurovision Song Contest winning song Waterloo.

And 40 years later, the song and the group behind it – Abba – remain as popular as ever, despite not having released any new music for more than 30 years.

The Scandinavian four-piece split in the early 1980s and have resisted the temptation for a Money, Money, Money-spinning reunion tour ever since.

Despite the West End success of musical Mamma Mia! and the mammoth box office receipts for the film version starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters, Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried, there’s little hope of seeing the foursome live on stage again.

However, a tribute to Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad can be seen in Stevenage later this month.

The Abba Reunion Tribute Show has been created by the original director, producer and choreographer of the award-winning Abbamania West End musical and stars the original ‘Frida’ from the London cast.

Audiences will be able to enjoy covers of classic songs such as Knowing Me, Knowing You, Take A Chance On Me, and Thank You For The Music.

The Abba Reunion Tribute Show’s 40th Anniversary of Waterloo Tour visits the Gordon Craig on Friday, May 23.

Tickets cost £19.50, with concessions £2 off.
