If you haven't unabashedly belted ABBA without care at some point in your life — be it alone in your car or strutting around on a Greek island — you haven't really lived. Or maybe you just enjoy denying yourself life's simpler pleasures.
Now Cincinnatians can all feel the beat from the tambourine — and pretend they're young and sweet, only 17 — when tribute band ABBAFAB brings the iconic 1970s Pop band's music to the Aronoff Center's Jarson-Kaplan Theater.
You can catch the band — which has sold out concerts across the U.S. and internationally — in Cincinnati on March 28 next year when they play back-to-back concerts at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Hollie Cavanagh, former American Idol frontrunner and YouTuber, will perform as Agnetha; Kayla Kenzior, who lends her talents to an array of similar productions, is Anna-Frid; Chris Whiteley, also playing piano and sax, is Benny; and Scotty Pearson, on guitar, rounds out the cast as Bjorn.
Hits like "Waterloo," "Fernando, "Honey, Honey," "Dancing Queen" and "Mamma Mia" — all of which were incorporated into the hit musical and movie Mamma Mia (bless Meryl Streep) — will be belted out throughout the night. Tickets range from $37.75-$51.75 (per usual, fees may apply) and go on sale Thursday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. at cincinnatiarts.org. You can also call 513-621-2787 or visit the Aronoff Center Ticket Office.
