BJÖRN Again will celebrate their 30th year with an appearance at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax on November 20.

The ABBA look and soundalikes, one of the world’s first tribute acts, are on the road with director and musician Rod Stephen.

Rod created the show in 1988 in Melbourne as a rocked-up light-hearted satirical ABBA spoof, and the show rapidly achieved worldwide cult status.

The show is said to have single-handedly initiated the ABBA revival which brought about ABBA Gold, Muriel’s Wedding and the musical Mamma Mia.

A spokesman said: “The enduring appeal of ABBA is reflected in the ongoing success of the show, having amassed 5,000 performances in 72 countries in 30 years.

“Hailed as the most popular and successful show of its type, career highlights over the years are many.

“These include performing at Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, touring with Cher, Shania Twain and playing at Wembley Arena, London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and Hyde Park.

“The ultimate aim for Rod is to keep his brand at the top and continue for as long as people want to hear the much-loved ABBA repertoire performed the way only his show does.”

Rod said: “We’re really looking forward to this 30th anniversary tour. Come and join us for loads of great songs combined with tons of fun and antics.” Visit or call 01422 351158 to book tickets.
