Fans Get Set for the Fabba Four

DON'T forget to polish those platforms and don your favourite flares when FABBA comes to town this week.

FABBA provides the ultimate tribute to the Swedish disco icons, decked out in full costume and performing all of ABBA'S greatest hits.

But the performers have their tongues firmly in cheek and present a look at AGNETHA, FRIDA, BENNY and BJORN and their lives after divorce.

The four decide to reunite after years away from the limelight, hoping to raise money to maintain their youthful looks with rejuvenation surgery.

Apart from a few chuckles, punters can still expect to hear all the classics of ABBA from WATERLOO to DANCING QUEEN. FABBA will play CLUBNOVA PANTHERS NEWCASTLE on Friday night.

The show continues from 8.30pm to 11pm.

Tickets are available on the door for $12.
