    SOUTH WALES Evening Post
    Abba Forever, Swansea Grand Theatre
    THE music of Abba epitomises the 1970s just as surely as the 1960s were defined by The Beatles: the difference is that the musical styles of what has become known (somewhat unfairly) as “the decade that style forgot” were altogether more eclectic, ranging from glam rock and jazz funk right through to ska, punk and disco.
    All the more remarkable, then, that Abba’s music has not only survived but is positively flourishing. Tributes to the Swedish supergroup always attract large audiences at the Grand, and the release of the movie Mamma Mia! Has captured the imagination of a new generation to whom this kind of music — punctuated as it is by driving, catchy rhythms and terrific harmonies -has a freshness and vibrancy.
    Having attended many an Abba tribute concert down the years, I would venture to suggest that Abba Forever rates among the best. The performers remain in character throughout and the songs are played straight, with none of the comedic self-mockery of Bjorn Again. Comedy has its place, but while some tribute acts are almost parodies of the original, Abba Forever takes itself far more seriously — and rightly so.
    All the classic hits were here: Dancing Queen, SOS, Waterloo, Voulez Vous, Thank You for the Music and so many more, all served up with joie de vivre and the kind of vocal skill guaranteed to delight the most ardent of fans.
    While other Abba tribute bands, such as Voulez Vous, utilise clever lighting design and projection techniques to enhance the experience, Abba Forever relies upon the music itself — together with showmanship and slick choreography — to make the show work to its best advantage. To say that it succeeds in its aim is an understatement.
    Abba Forever? You bet!

    It’s hard to ignore the sudden resurgence of tribute bands in recent years. Only a decade ago, impersonators such as the Bootleg Beatles were considered mere more than a cheap novelty. Nowadays, such acts are revered with the likes o Fools Gold (Sto
    ne Roses) even working alongside their idols

    None, however, have spawned as many would-be pretenders as pop’s famed acronym Abba. Boasting more than 40 acts in Britain alone, the lucrative tribute scene has been paramount in the Swedes’ revival which has witnessed the launch of musicals Mamma Mia and Kristina.

    Few have received the same recognition as Abba Forever, the nation’s leading live Abba tribute. Tonight’s diverse audience at the Edinburgh Playhouse highlighted the band’s universal appeal. School groups rubbed shoulders with elderly “dancing queens”, each eagerly awaiting the foursome’s arrival.

    For most tribute artists, both image and performance are crucial. And Abba Forever proved no exception. Dressed to the nines in gleaming gold platforms, baco-foil capes and skin-tight romper suits, the band uncannily resembled their adopted roles down to the last meticulous detail. The performers remained in character throughout, avoiding the pitfalls of self-caricature.

    Unlike competitors Bjorn Again and Voulez Vous, Abba Forever focus is on the live elements of the production. Sidestepping material from Abba’s famous Gold album, the group ventured into unfamiliar territory with songs Ring Ring and Slipping through My Fingers, the later the chance to showcase the full extent of “Agnetha’s” soprano voice.

    The men were also given the occasion to exhibit their musicianship. While the girls changed from neon pink jumpsuits into raincoats for Money, Money, Money, “Benny” treated his fans to a bracing solo from his earlier “Hep Stars” career.

    But it was the anthems that the audience had come to hear and this evening’s show did not disappoint.

    All of the Scandinavian supergroup’s hits were present with SOS, Waterloo, Super Trouper and Knowing Me, Knowing You, performed with much joie de vivre.

    The band concluded their set with the inevitable encore of Thank You for the Music and Dancing Queen, sending the spirited crowd of “fernandos” and “chiquititas” dancing and jiving into the aisles. For judging by their reactions they were, no doubt having the time of their lives.
