Last week my BFF and long lost younger sister Rosie Mai and I went to see ABBA Mania. This touring group who provided the ABBA experience came to Carmarthen and we could not wait to go. I had never been to a tribute act/band impersonator before. But I needn't have worried. It was FABULOUS!
These are all pictures of the real ABBA.

The men were just beardy blokes wearing 70's jumpsuits and silver platform boots. So I guess they looked a bit like Benny and Bjorn.

They started off in the outfits they wore when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. They fittingly sang Waterloo since that was their winning song.
|How they did all that dancing in those platform boots I will never know|
They moved on to other hits like Gimme, Gimme, Gimme(a man after midnight) , Knowing me, Knowing you, Mamma Mia, SOS, Does Your Mother Know, Take a Chance on Me, Voulez Vous, The Name of the Game, Super Trouper, and Money, Money Money.
|They wore copies of this outfit too and I could see their knickers|

They interspersed the dancing songs with slow numbers like The Winner Takes It All, Fernando, Thank You For the Music, and my favourite—Chiquitita.

You can dance,
You can jive,
Having the time of your life.
See that girl,
Watch that scene
Digging the Dancing Queen.
