Stopping in 8 cities across the UK, the tour starts at the Newcastle Metro Arena on Tuesday 14th October, 2008 followed by Sheffield, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Liverpool, London Wembley Arena and Brighton, closing at the Birmingham NIA, before heading on to Europe, Asia and America.

ABBA The Show centres around 4 singers, collectively known as Waterloo, who look, dance, and sound EXACTLY the same as Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida. Add to this a truly staggering production which includes a full orchestra, musicians from Abba's original 1970's line-up, huge video screens and hundreds of thousands of pounds-worth of lighting, and you have what even the official fan club has described as "Absolutely the best ABBA since ABBA".

Last year's London Royal Albert Hall show was attended by a diverse and very vocal audience including retro girls-night-out parties, Eurovision Dancing Queens and guys and girls of all ages with a passion for one of the most enduring pop bands of all time.
