ABBA - The Music (concert review)

From the desk of The Movie Snob

ABBA - The Music. Last night the Borg Queen and I went down to Dallas's Meyerson Symphony Center and enjoyed a concert by an ABBA tribute band called Waterloo. (You can see their official website at We got a little nervous at first -- they did the second song and most of the third in Swedish! But then they switched back to good old American for the rest of the concert, so all was well. They had two guest stars in tow -- musicians who had actually played with the real ABBA back in the day! They were a saxophonist and a drummer, and they seemed to enjoy sitting in on a few numbers. For the most part the band did sound reasonably like ABBA, and they mimicked some of the band's costumes and choreography from their old music videos. They did pretty much every song that hit the American charts, with a couple of minor exceptions. Lots of people were standing in the aisles, waving their arms in time with the music. In short, a good time was had by all, even us folks in the nosebleed seats.

It was a fun time. An entire section of people in the seats behind the orchestra pit were swaying all together. There was one little old lady who was so excited you would have thought the real ABBA was out there playing. My only real complaint (besides them singing in Swedish) was that I thought the costumes could have been better - they seemed a little amateurish.
