Show off your flare for boogieing
FANCY dusting off those flared pants and platform shoes and travelling back to the ’70s? RSL Southport is throwing a New Year’s Eve disco party so all the dancing queens and kings can boogie the night away to on-stage ABBA and Bee Gees acts. Flared pants, outrageous costumes and fantastic music created by two of the most famous bands of the era will be reborn at the RSL for the dinner and show event Disco Nights: Abba vs Bee Gees. The show stars tribute groups Abba Rebjorn and The Ultimate Bee Gees, who have travelled the world with their acclaimed shows. Patrons can expect to hear hits such as Stayin Alive, Dancing Queen, I Started a Joke, Fernando and more. Abba Rebjorn have played sold out concerts in Canada, China, South Africa, New Zealand and Dubai and will head to Japan for a two-week of Disco Nights in May. Abba and The Bee Gees ruled the charts as two of the biggest ‘‘supergroups’’ in the world during the 1970s. Former Brisbane boys The Bee Gees have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide while Swedish supergroup Abba cemented their place as one of the most popular acts in the world with hits including Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and Winner Takes It All. ABBA have sold more than 370 million records worldwide – making them the fourth bestselling music artists in the history of recorded music.
