The world's No. 1 Abba show Bjorn Again is celebrating its 21th anniversary and New Zealand is invited to the party!
Join these outrageous characters in your best jumpsuit and platforms for the time of your life when they hit our shores in May for 11 ABBAsolutely fabulous shows.
They're not a copy of Abba nor a tribute band. Those unlucky not to have seen Bjorn Again in action before, be prepared for a rollicking good night of ABBA humour and music.
While keeping somewhat faithful to the songs, the rest of the performance is delivered in the style of a send-up. The cast talk among themselves and to the audience in faux-Swedish 'Swenglish' accents, and have been given stage names that playfully and humorously resemble the names of the original band members: Agnetha Falstart, Benny Anderwear, Frida Longstokin, and Björn Volvo-us. Björn Again also has a bass guitarist Rutger Sonofagunn and the drummer Ola Drumkitt (from long-time ABBA session musicians Rutger Gunnarsson and Ola Brunkert).
Bjorn Again are so much fun they've played they've been enlisted by a who's who of the music and entertainment world including Cher, Shania Twain, Rod Steward, Bon Jovi, Cliff Richard and even Bill Gates to perform for them.
With the dawn of the Mamma Mia! phenomenon, generations of new fans have emerged and platform-wearing groupies the world over just can't get enough of Bjorn Again. They are the ultimate ABBA experience!
