On Tour: Björn Again

"Friday night and the lights are low, looking out for the place to go."

Australia loves ABBA. Anyone that has seen Muriel's Wedding knows this, but we're not the only ones. The Swedish superstars are one of the biggest acts in music's history. They topped the charts all over the world and they have this little musical you might have heard of called Mamma Mia (which I heard was mildly successful and led to a low budget film adaptation starring some unknown actors like Meryl Streep). Last week I even read that ABBA Gold moved past Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to become the UK's second highest selling album. Ever. No one can deny that ABBA were makers of pop magic. From 'Dancing Queen,' 'Money, Money, Money,' 'Mamma Mia,' 'Fernando,' 'Knowing Me Knowing You.' These are some of the greatest pop tunes going around. Such a shame we'll never hear them performed live again, right? Wrong! 

If you're familiar with the concept of a tribute act, you'll know who Björn Again are. They went from paying tribute to ABBA in a small pub in Melbourne to a national success before becoming a global brand that's played to sell out crowds at the Royal Albert Hall. They've become the world's most successful tribute band through cheesy accents and incredible music, even earning an endorsement from ABBA's Benny Anderson as being the closest you'll ever get to seeing ABBA live since, you know, they aren't going to be reforming. Björn Again are heading out on a national tour in July, so ABBA fans (which is pretty much everyone), check out some tour deets below...
