Review of ABBA Forever at the Pier Theatre, Bournemouth

ABBA is a household name immediately bringing to mind this Swedish group‘s captivating and rhythmical close harmony – their unique trademark.

At the Pier Theatre in Bournemouth on Sunday 2nd August , ABBA Forever mesmerized the audience with these same sounds. This time the music was infused with an exhilarating vibrant energy that made the event positively unforgettable.

While the listeners were wowed with pianistic flourishes, Björn manipulated his evocative guitar into spellbinding improvisations. The drums and bass guitar throbbed as the girls danced and sang like never before. Lights, costumes and sets changed seamlessly a continuous flow of ABBA’s famous songs filled the auditorium. Among the favourites were Waterloo, Mama Mia, Fernando, I have a Dream, The Winner Takes All, The Name of the Game, Lay all your love on me, Knowing me Knowing you, Super Trouper, Thank you for the Music, Dancing Queen, Money, Money, Money, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Summer Night City, Ring Ring and Take a Chance on Me.

This marvellous group may be seen and heard again at the Pier Theatre Bournemouth on Sunday 23rd August 2009. You are advised to book early for this amazing event!
