This is in response to the massive demand from ABBA loving Pinoys to bring Abbamania back to the country after its successful concert series a year ago.

AbbaMania was formed in 1998. The group has performed in sold out concerts in Denmark, England, Portugal, Scotland, Belgium, France, Ireland, Germany and other parts of the world. Playing the singers and the band are Ewa Scott, a classically trained vocalist from Poland; Sharon Fehlberg an actress, singer and songwriter from the UK; Steven Galert, the multi-instrumentalist musical director of Abbamania; Adam Robertson, another multi-instrumentalist from the UK; Bryan Smith, a guitarist from Scotland; guitarist Gareth Whitehead; and drummer Lee Brady.


Watching Abbamania in concert is a great opportunity for fans of the legendary group from Sweden to approximate a real ABBA  performance.  The group was formed by Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad in the early 70s and broke into big time after winning the Grand Prix at the Eurovision Song Festival with the song Waterloo. More hits followed until the group broke up during the late 80s.  The songs have remained popular and ABBA music was further immortalized in the stage musical and later motion picture Mamma Mia!

AbbaManila will have audiences dancing in the aisles with their fabulous live show featuring nearly two hours of pure ABBA nostalgia with songs like Waterloo, Money Money, Take A Chance On Me, One Last Summer, The Winner Takes It All, Knowing Me Knowing You, Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Lay All Your Love On Me, Super Trouper, I Have A Dream, S.O.S., Chiquitita, Fernando, Voulez Vous, Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight), Does Your Mother Know, The Name Of The Game, Dance (While The Music Still Goes On), Honey Honey, I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do, Our Last Summer, Thank You For The Music and many others.
