The music of the former Swedish rock group ABBA is now hotter than ever. More than nostalgia, it’s the combination of wall-of-sound arrangements, infectious lyrics, disco beat, and outrageous outfits. The Swedish group ARRIVAL, an authentic 12-member ensemble, even includes some of the original ABBA musicians! The group, which started out in 1995 as a trademark created by Vicky Zetterberg. is today the largest touring ABBA show in the world, having toured over 20 nations worldwide. Theirs is the only show in the world with exclusive rights to create exact versions of ABBA’s original costumes, the exclusive permission approved by Owe Sandström, who originally created and designed all ABBA costumes. ARRIVAL performs such songs as Dancing Queen, Money, Money, Money, and Waterloo, with more glow than you ever experienced in real life.
