Ok, it’s more likely that there is an abundance of ABBA themed nights in the city because of the release of Mamma Mia 2, but I’d like to believe that it’s because everybody loves them as much as I do. Yes, there has always been tribute acts, but now there’s even club nights for ‘the kids’ that adore ABBA too. Gypsies, Tramps & Swedes: A Cher & ABBA Disco at The Ruby Lounge Saturday 20th October To celebrate ageless pop goddess Cher releasing an album of ABBA covers, Pop Curious? are throwing a 'Gypsies, Tramps and Swedes' Cher & ABBA + friends discotheque at The Ruby Lounge on Saturday 20th October and we're all invited! After a bit of a star turn in this year's Mamma Mia! 2 - Cher is back in vogue and this night at The Ruby Lounge will feature plenty of her hits, a ton of ABBA and every other diva in between. Buy Tickets   Gimme Gimme Gimme (ABBA After Midnight) @ The Deaf Institute Friday 2nd November This one is so popular that there are two nights dedicated purely to ABBA over the next two months. Unfortunately for you the next one in October is SOLD OUT, but the one in November is still going strong. I can certainly hear the drums, Fernando. Buy Tickets   ABBA Tribute @ Buile Hill Park Hall Saturday 1st December Want a beautiful setting, all your favourite ABBA songs and a Christmas-y twist? Then this will be perfect for you.

Buy Tickets   Bjorn Again @ Manchester Academy Saturday 15th December Created and founded in 1988 in Melbourne, Bjorn Again was designed as a rocked-up light-hearted satirical ABBA spoof and has rapidly achieved worldwide cult status.

Halle Orchestra @ Bridgewater Hall Sunday 30th December Four vocalists from Capital Voices and a complete rhythm section all brought together by composer Stephen Bell performing the greatest pops songs of all time (truth).
