Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Abba’s Eurovision triumph, hit stage show Thank You for the Music is coming to Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill on Saturday, February 15 at 8pm (tickets 01444 242888).

We have teamed up with the promoters to offer three pairs of tickets to the show.

Producer Michael Taylor said: “It’s an all-new, Spandex and sequins spectacular for 2014. The cast take live music fans back to 1974, to the night when Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida arrived as pop music superstars by winning the Eurovision Song Contest with their self-composed song Waterloo.

“The win catapulted Abba to worldwide fame. Waterloo was a number one hit in ten countries and even a top ten hit in the States. There followed singles and albums with sales totalling 370 million, a record-breaking movie, a smash-hit West End musical and now the UK’s number one concert show, Thank You for the Music.

“The ultimate tribute concert show revives all of Abba’s chart topping hits, including Dancing Queen, Super Trouper, Mamma Mia, Thank You for the Music, Take A Chance on Me, The Winner Takes It All, Chiquitita, I Have A Dream, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and, of course, Waterloo.

“Now in their 21st year, the superb, all-star cast have entertained the nation with Lycra-tight harmonies and superb musicianship for longer than Bjorn, Agnetha, Benny and Frida did during the 70s and 80s.”
