Abbamania, Night Fever in spotlight at McPherson in Victoria

ABBA, Bee Gees songs will fill the Mac Feb. 7, along with Lady Gaga tribute

The 70s will be alive and well at the McPherson Playhouse on Feb. 7. For one night only, renowned ABBA tribute band Abbamania and Bee Gees tribute band Night Fever take over the Victoria theatre.

Fans will be able to live out the Swedish group’s 70s heydays hearing hits like “Waterloo,” “Dancing Queen,” “S.O.S.” and many more. Abbamania are the only tribute band to perform for the worldwide smash musical Mamma Mia!, and have played ABBA’s music backed by numerous symphonies throughout North America. Abbamania hails from Toronto and has been showcasing the hits since 1999.

Concert-goers can expect from Night Fever such hits as “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin’ Alive” and “More than a Woman,” each made popular by the 1977 blockbuster film Saturday Night Fever, as well as other tunes from the Australian band. Presenting the Bee Gees’ signature high harmonies and funky music, they have been pleasing crowds from Disneyland all the way to Russia.

This special performance at the Mac includes a Lady Gaga tribute with songs from the 2019 remake of A Star is Born. The film’s song “Shallow” won numerous awards, more notably including Best Original Song from the Golden Globe Awards, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media from the Grammys, among four nominations.

Tickets for the show cost $49. To purchase them or for more information, visit the Royal and McPherson Theatres online at rmts.bc.ca or call 250-386-6121.
