ABBA fans will be able to say ‘Thank You for the Music’ once again as a leading tribute act returns to the Isle of Man in August.
South Douglas Old Friends Association has hosted performances by acclaimed tribute performers ABBA Reunion for the past two years, attracting audiences of more than 600 each year and raising more than £10,000 for the charity.
Thanks to public demand the group will be back at the Villa Marina to perform more of the biggest disco hits of the 1970s and 1980s, and the Steam Packet Company is again supporting the charity by covering travel costs for the group.
Organiser Marc Lowey said: ‘ABBA Reunion have gone down an absolute storm for the past two years and we have had so many calls from fans to “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” another concert that we simply had to book them again.
‘We’re looking forward to recreating that amazing party atmosphere later this year, and raising as much as we can for South Douglas Old Friends Association.
‘I’d like to thank the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company for once again supporting the charity; its ongoing generosity has ensured this return visit was possible, bringing eager fans entertainment and helping our fundraising efforts.’
The concert is on 18th August and tickets are on sale now from the Villa Marina box office or www.villagaiety.com.
ABBA Reunion’s performance will again be followed by a disco for people aged 18 and over only, where Legislative Council member and former MHK David Cretney will DJ.
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘Over the past two years ABBA Reunion have delighted audiences and helped South Douglas Old Friends Association raise more than £10,000. We are pleased to be continuing our support so everyone who goes along can have a great night out and the charity can raise as much money as possible.’
