The Music of ABBA Is the Name of the Game at the CCPA on Fri., May 26, 8:00 PM
CERRITOS, CA – Get ready for bellbottoms, platform heels, and disco balls! It’s a flashback to the ’70s when the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) celebrates the signature sound and style of Pop legend ABBA on Friday, May 26, 8:00 PM. Tickets start at $50.
DIRECT FROM SWEDEN: THE MUSIC OF ABBA celebrates the band’s legacy in an exciting musical showcase of greatest tunes, including Chiquita; Fernando; Take a Chance on Me; and Super Trouper. With meticulous attention to costumes and make-up, the show incorporates ABBA’s live traits, including solos, musical numbers, and a complete live band consisting of handpicked members from some of the greatest ABBA tribute acts.
In 1974, the Swedish Pop-Rock band ABBA won England’s Eurovision Song Contest with the single Waterloo. The quartet went on to dominate radio play lists and music charts in the ’70s and ’80s with a bevy of hits, including Money, Money, Money; The Winner Takes It All; and Knowing Me, Knowing You. However, it was the Gold-certified hit Dancing Queen – which skyrocketed to No. One in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and the United States in 1980 – that officially turned ABBA into an indisputable international Pop phenomenon.
The band sold more than 400 million records worldwide and garnered an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The 1999 Broadway musical based on ABBA’s songs, Mamma Mia, and the 2008 blockbuster hit film of the same name have kept the ensemble’s appeal alive.
