The ‘ultimate’ Abba experience at Mareel

Björn Again are expected to bring 'the perfect opportunity to brighten up the dark nights'

A TOP ABBA tribute band are billed to play Mareel in November in the midst of a UK tour. 1974 Abba Tribute Show, dubbed the “ultimate ABBA experience” by Shetland Arts, will perform on Saturday 17 November.

The group is formed out of the ashes of Björn Again, who previously took to the stage at the Tall Ships event in Lerwick back in 2011.

1974 Abba Tribute Show has been “delighting audiences all around the world for the last 16 years”.

The four musicians have enjoyed long successful careers in music, with live and recorded credits with artists such as The Stereophonics, Sir Tom Jones, Blur, Johnny Hallyday, McFly, Gary Numan, Lisa Stansfield and Cat Stevens.

Björn Again have supported many famous names including the Spice Girls, Rod Stewart, Sir Cliff Richard, Sting, Kylie Minogue, Cher and Shania Twain.

They also impressed rock icons Nirvana and Metallica so much that both acts invited the group to play on the same bill as them.

Due to a continued demand for all four to perform ABBA’s music together once again, Björn Again decided to create a new ABBA tribute show of their own which was launched in 2009.

According to Shetland Arts, concert goers can expect a lively night full of all of their favourite ABBA hits – “the perfect opportunity to brighten up the dark nights”.

Tickets are available from Friday 27 July at, over the phone on 01595 745500 or in person at Mareel.
