Björn Again performs the greatest hits of ABBA, including “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” “SOS,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” “Fernando,” “Take a Chance on Me,” and “Mamma Mia.” The internationally acclaimed BJÖRN AGAIN show was created and founded in 1988 in Melbourne by Australian director and musician Rod Stephen. Designed as a rocked-up light-hearted satirical ABBA spoof, the show rapidly achieved worldwide cult status and is acknowledged for singlehandedly initiating the ABBA revival which brought about ABBA Gold, Muriel’s Wedding and MAMMA MIA! The enduring appeal of ABBA is reflected in the ongoing success of the Björn Again show having amassed over 5,000 performances in 72 countries in 30 years.
They have been hailed as the most popular and successful act of its type in the world having been endorsed by ABBA’s Agnetha Fältskog, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, as well as Kylie Minogue and J.K. Rowling.
“It was a great show. I loved the choreography … it was very true to life,” said Fältskog.
“Björn Again has been going for twice as long as ABBA did!,” said Anderson. “ABBA will never reform.”
Björn Again was created and founded in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia by bass player Rod Stephen. For more information, visit www.bjornagain.com.
