Dancing Queen: A Tribute to ABBA are set to rock the stage at the Hastings Toitoi event center on November 18 as part of their New Zealand tour.

From November to December, the group will perform in 33 gigantic venues over 46 days.

Like many concerts to come, this will be the first time since 2020 that Kiwis can dance and sing along with the ABBA tribute band.

The show brings new Brit cast member Jess Driver – as Agnetha – to perform alongside Australian Zac Coombs as Bjorn and South African Giselle Bouwer as Anni- Frid and André Behnke as Benny.

The producers, Showtime Australia, took advantage of the enforced downtime during the recent pandemic to revamp the show’s production so that even regular attendees will find the show fresh and fun.

Singer Tribute Bouwer said, “Abba is famous for having these catchy classic tunes that never get old, so it’s a hard show to get sick of.”

ABBA fans can dance and sing along to some of the Swedish band’s biggest hits for over two hours.

Live on stage, a hand-picked international cast of eight musicians, with world-class production and visuals to accompany, will perform some of ABBA’s greatest hits such as Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Money, Money, Money, Super Trouper, SOS, Fernando, and more.

The Hastings frontman has two double assists for Dancing Queen: A Tribute to ABBA to offer.

To win, all you have to do is visit the Hastings Leader on Facebook and in the comments tell us your favorite ABBA song and why it’s your favourite. Facebook post.

The ticket contest will end and the winners will be announced on November 9.
