Knowing me, knowing you, could we ever get enough of ABBA? And now there’s 'Bjorn Again', the world famous ABBA tribute band established in Melbourne, Australia in 1988, to say Thank You for the music.
Marking Sri Lanka’s first concert on May 16, at the SLECC at 7pm, audiences are in for a thrilling evening of ABBA tunes performed by this world famous band.
Bjorn Again are one of the most popular and most successful international entertainment acts in the world today. Soon to enter its 20th year of touring, Bjorn Again have performed sellout tours to critical acclaim in over 70 countries worldwide. The group delivers the ABBA look and sound with all the authentic costumes and makeup, hi-tech production, staging and lighting effects, it’s a cheeky dose of parody, satire and on-stage theatrics that all combine to create a lot of fun and excitement for any audience.
Bjorn Again is the only ABBA show endorsed by all members of ABBA, who have publicly praised and supported the band over many years. Bjorn Ulvaues credits Bjorn Again with initiating the ABBA revival of the early 90s.
ABBA were one of the biggest pop acts in the 70s, but their appeal has grown far larger since they disbanded in 1983, due to a number of progressive factors such as the release of the ABBA GOLD album in ’92, and the recent popularity owing to the musical ‘Mamma Mia! which was made into a movie starring Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan. But as acknowledged by the music and media industries, including a leading UK journalist, and ABBA themselves, this has all been helped along by Bjorn Again providing a highly entertaining live ABBA experience constantly since 1989.
Bjorn Again’s career highlights over 20 years are many. They have performed ‘Money Money Money’ to Bill Gates, ‘Take a Chance On Me’ to Tom Jones, ‘Ring Ring’ to Russel Crowe, ‘Rock Me’ to Metallica, ‘Super Trouper’ to Kurt Cobain, ‘SOS’ to ‘Mr Bean’ (Rowan Atkinson), and ‘Dancing Queen’ to royals Andrew and Fergie. They have played Wembley Stadium, The Sydney Opera House, The Royal Albert Hall and at the Glastonbury Music Festival.
Bjorn Again is an incredible success story and is a tribute act that has become a major international touring entity in its own right and has captured
the imagination of the world.
