THE ULTIMATE ABBA TRIBUTE BAND
About VOULEZ VOUS
Following the huge success of our ‘MAMMA MIA’ Concert Tour, we are now proud to introduce our new tour for 2013/2014…
‘MAD ABOUT ABBA’!
It has now been twenty-two years since VOULEZ VOUS’ humble beginnings back in Autumn 1992. Today they embark upon their brand new U.K. tour for 2013/14, aptly named, ‘Mad About ABBA’!
For more than four decades ABBA really have been ‘masters of the scene’! Today, both young and old will instantly recognise the distinctive tunes that have stood the test of time since that unforgettable Eurovision performance way back in 1974!
VOULEZ VOUS have strived for the last twenty-two years to continue their legacy in recreating the costumes, glamour and distinct sound that was ABBA.
Now with members of the original cast involved in the production of the show, their latest tour ‘Mad About ABBA’, brings to you exciting choreography and an array of new costumes in their ever-expanding 70’s glam wardrobe!
Their talented and energetic team of musicians and performers will have you mistake them for the real thing to bring back to life your memories of the Swedish super-group.
VOULEZ VOUS will be sure to have you dancing in the aisles to hits including: ‘Take A Chance’, ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘S.O.S’, ‘Gimme, Gimme’, ‘Fernando’, ‘Waterloo’, ‘Voulez Vous’, ‘Thank You For The Music’, and also songs from the hit film/stage show, ‘Mamma Mia!’
So what are you waiting for?
Dust off those platforms, put on those flares and come and join VOULEZ VOUS on a two-hour nostalgic journey through the depths of ABBAland!
ARE YOU READY? HERE WE GO!
