Mama Mia! Chilly But Fun

AbbamaniaIn spite of the half-filled (and cold) arena this proved to be an enjoyable evening’s entertainment for young and old alike.

Some were reliving their youth, others were using it as a good excuse to get dressed up in wigs, flares and glitter while others were hearing Abba for the first time.

The band themselves were very good, by far the best tribute band I've seen. They were even asked to sign autographs at the end - whether they used their real names or carried on pretending they were Abba is anyone’s guess.

It did start a little slow, but soon after the interval things livened up as they brought out all of the famous songs.

My particular favourites were Mamma Mia, Super Trouper and Waterloo, which was wisely left as the encore song, as recognised by everyone. By the end of the night the majority of people were singing, dancing and thoroughly enjoying themselves.

I would definitely go to see them perform again, but I think they would have been better in Jumpin Jaks on the night they have tribute bands on.

Apart from that though, it was a really good night. My mum would've loved it!
