Friday night and the lights are low and Rothes Halls is the place to go: celebrate the Swedish super group’s biggest selling hit Dancing Queen’s 40th anniversary in sequin-spangled style.
Thank You For The Music is a two-hour theatre spectacular that captures all the magic and excitement of one of pop history’s most successful and entertaining live bands. The international hit production – which also features the UK’s most successful Bee Gees revue – is now in its 23rd year and show producer Michael Taylor boasts that the spectacle has been delighting live music fans for longer than Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida did during the 70s and 80s.
“Thank You for the Music has outlasted ABBA in their prime and Dancing Queen represents the pinnacle of the group’s career,” he says. “The show “Combines Lycra-tight harmonies with superb musicianship.”
Featuring all of ABBA’s greatest hits, including Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Take A Chance On Me, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, Knowing Me Knowing You, Fernando, Super Trouper and many more.
Michael and the team are “over the moon” to be coming to Kirkcaldy for the first time in the show’s history.
“It’s always really special when we visit somewhere for the first time,” he enthuses.
With stunning costumes, a seven-piece band, interactive video projection, some tongue-in-cheek Swedish humour, and of course ABBA’s spectacular trademark harmonies, this is the ultimate feel-good party show, so grab your platforms and flares for a journey back in time to when ABBA dominated the charts and ruled the airwaves.
“We hope people of all ages will come along and join in the show,” says Michael.
“We have a huge fan base and a lot of folk come year after year to see us.
“The music has inspired a whole new generation – even little children aged five or six know all the songs.
“The show isn’t just about listening to the hits – come and sing and dance along and have the time of your lives.”
Thank You for the Music also features show stealers The Magic of the Bee Gees.
The trio, backed by a live band, perform original Bee Gees’ hits like Staying Alive, Massachusetts, Night Fever and How Deep is Your Love.
We have two pairs of tickets for the Glenrothes show on March 17, 7.30pm to give away to the first names chosen at random after the closing date of March 13.
