Killer Queen, ABBA Mania
"Two music legends celebrated in one amazing show!
After selling out our major arenas in 2018, Queen & ABBA are coming to Upton Country Park! Globe trotting Killer Queen and ABBA MANIA come together for one spectacular legends night!
Friday night will be a night to remember, offering outstanding value with TWO spectacular concerts rolled into ONE awesome night as we combine globe-trotting Killer Queen and ABBA Mania. Both award-winning acts sell out at arenas all across the country. This is one electrically charged super show selling out our major arenas in 2018.
Headliner Killer Queen have spent nearly 25 years travelling the world with their must see tribute to Freddy Mercury & Queen. Their expert musicianship and extraordinary energy accurately portray one of the world’s greatest live bands. Killer Queen have rightfully earned the title of tribute royalty!
Playing to sell-out audiences across the globe from the UK to Moscow and their first tour of USA in 2016, Killer Queen recreate the high energy, powerful phenomenon that was Queen in an incredible production fronted by the outstanding Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury. Time Out described Patrick’s resemblance to Freddie Mercury as ‘Spooky!’ His uncanny likeness was further proven when he recorded a number one hit single singing as Freddie Mercury on Fat Boy Slim’s record The Real Life! This quality, combined with a powerful tenor range and dynamic stage presence, has captivated audiences the world over. Selling thousands of tickets for every concert, Killer Queen are one of the world’s highest grossing tribute acts.
ABBA Mania are the UK’s Number 1 ABBA tribute show, fresh from London’s West End having recently completed a major UK theatre tour and residency. Simply, ABBA Mania ensures the legend lives on. The slickest stage show around, the concert includes faithful choreography, spectacular and authentic costumes, stunning production and most importantly, excellent musicianship.
You’ll be on your feet in no time at all. With each of their songs building on the last, swelling the crowd, even the biggest party grouch will be throwing shapes – nobody can sit still while ABBA Mania storm through their set of epic numbers which are all performed live and in perfect harmony, just like the real thing! Even after the final encore the audience is shouting for more."

The original tribute from London’s West End, ABBA MANIA takes you back in time by recreating one of the world’s finest pop groups in a live stage performance.

The now award-winning show has continued to toured extensively throughout Europe, selling out theatres wherever they perform.
ABBA’s timeless songs were written to be enjoyed live and ABBA MANIA gives you exactly that. Two hours of uplifting, dance inducing and sometimes heart-breaking songs, fully live with fantastic staging, lighting and effects. The show recreates ABBA’s sound not only perfectly, but respectfully too. ABBA MANIA is not only for lifelong, diehard ABBA fans but the new generation of fans, who never had the opportunity to see ‘ABBA’ live.
