The most popular Abba tribute group from Europe, ABBAMANIA, is back in Manila for a series of shows! The band showed their excitement to perform again to the Filipino audience during the press conference held last March 20 at the Eclipse Bar in Solaire Resorts and Casino. Each of the members shared their favorite Abba songs and even gave a sample and sang few lines from "Chiquitita" in front of the Philippine press.

Over the weekend, the group staged their first 2 shows for their 2014 Philippine Tour. First at the Solaire Grand Ballroom at Solaire Resorts & Casino last March 21 and then at the PICC Plenary Hall on March 22. 

The glittery group flawlessly performed Abba's hits such as Fernando, Dancing Queen, S.O.S., Take A Chance On Me, The Winner Takes It All, Chiquitita, Thank You For The Music and many more. 

The tribute group didn't disappoint Abba fans as they performed each songs as close to the original! You can feel this as they've got the audience up on their feet singing, clapping, waving and dancing! Vocalists Ewa Scott and Sharon Fehlberg, who plays as Agnetta and Anni-Frid respectively, even went down to the crowd and joined the dancing. The band also performed "I Have A Dream" with the kids from O.B. Montessori Choir.

They sang Dancing Queen for the second time during the encore and a medley of Abba songs.  It was indeed a great Abba experience as you can feel the 70s' vibe all through out the show. ABBAMANIA brought Abba back to life... Abba magic was definitely re-lived!
