BJÖRN AGAIN release their first recorded music in over a decade on the 22nd November 2019. The ‘CHRISTMAS IS BJÖRN AGAIN’ EP, Produced and mixed by Steve Anderson (Kylie / Westlife / Britney Spears) see’s the band covering classics ‘Keeping The Dream Alive’ and ‘Underneath The Tree’ as well as a take on The Killers ‘Human’ and original track ‘(Love’s) Not Just For Christmas’ and will undoubtedly usher in the much needed party Christmas spirit to the close of 2019. In conjunction with the EP release, BJÖRN AGAIN follow their sold out 30th anniversary tour last year and their 2019 Glastonbury set the group embark on a 17 date nationwide tour kicking off on the 29th November in Reading and ending on the 21st December in Birmingham performing the greatest hits of Abba.
The internationally acclaimed show was created and founded in 1988 in Melbourne by Rod Stephen. Designed as a rocked-up light-hearted satirical ABBA spoof, the show rapidly achieved worldwide Cult status and acknowledged for singlehandedly initiating the ABBA revival which brought about ABBA Gold, Muriel’s Wedding and MAMMA MIA!
The enduring appeal of ABBA is reflected in the ongoing success of the BJÖRN AGAIN show having amassed 5,000 performances in 72 countries in 31 years. Hailed as the most popular and successful show of its type, BJÖRN AGAIN’s career highlights over the years are many. From performing at Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh to touring with Cher, Shania Twain and playing at Wembley Arena, London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and Hyde Park.
Acknowledged by ABBA’s blonde vocalist Agnetha Fältskog, the ultimate aim, as always for Rod is to keep his brand at the top and continue for as long as people want to hear the much-loved ABBA repertoire performed the way only the BJÖRN AGAIN show does.
Speaking on the tour, Rod Stephen said: “We are really looking forward to touring again this year. Come and join us for loads of great songs combined with tons of fun and antics.”
Performing all of the greatest hits, this promises to be one of the biggest parties of 2019! Tickets are available from www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk
