Abba Mania at the Shaftesbury Theatre

Not seen in London's West End for nearly 2 decades, ABBA MANIA is long overdue a return visit and will now be heading back for a short season at the Shaftesbury Theatre from 21 May to 6 June 2021.


The show recreates ABBA's last ever concert in an exhilarating two-hour production which celebrates the Swedish supergroup's irresistible music and sports fantastic costumes and electrifying staging making the concert perfect for life-long ABBA fans as well as newcomers.


All the best-known hits will be on offer including Mamma Mia, Voulez Vous, Dancing Queen, Winner Takes It All, Waterloo, Fernando, Does Your Mother Know, Super Trouper and many more.


The show has delighted more than three million audience members since its formation in 1999, performing over 3,000 live shows in 30 countries across the world.


ABBA MANIA producer, Todd Littlewood said ...


"There's nothing more perfect for reopening of the West End than the belt-out, feel-good music of ABBA.


It's been a tough year and as audiences begin to take their seats in auditoriums once again, we can't wait to return to where it all began for ABBA MANIA and make sure that joy is ABBA-solutely centre stage."


Following the show's West End season, it will tour as part of Sounds In The Grounds and The Legends Festival, followed by a full UK tour this autumn.


And the show will be spreading its wings with a 55-date US tour, a debut Russian tour and a 25-date arena tour in France throughout 2021 and 2022.
