Relive the nostalgia of the music of the legendary Swedish pop supergroup, ABBA, as the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) pays tribute to them in a concert on Friday, 2 December 2022 at 8:30 pm at Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC).
This concert, Arrival from Sweden: The Music of ABBA, will witness the MPO breaking out of the box and fusing pop and classical elements, giving the audience music richness on a whole new level while capturing the spirit of the pop group.
However, it is not the first time the MPO has paid tribute to legendary artists/groups. Previously, the MPO paid tribute to many iconic musicians, including Michael Jackson in 2013, Billy Joel (2018), Pink Floyd (2017), U2 (2016), Queen (2015), and Led Zeppelin (2014).
The MPO will not perform alone as ARRIVAL From Sweden, one of the world’s most popular and best-selling ABBA tribute bands will perform at this concert.
Founded in 1995, the band is described as the best and most authentic ABBA show there is, with many of ABBA’s hit songs such as Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, and many more performed and delivered with such accuracy that it is difficult to believe that it’s not the real ABBA on stage.
Since its inception, the band has toured in 70 countries and appeared on numerous TV stations and radio shows worldwide.
Additionally, ARRIVAL From Sweden has also performed with over 100 symphony orchestras, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony Orchestra, and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
The concert will be conducted by the MPO Resident Conductor, Gerald Salonga. ABBA fans will be able to hear familiar elements of the music laced with an orchestral enhancement during the concert.
Among the timeless hits to be performed are Money Money Money, Take A Chance, Mamma Mia, and many more.
