Ancient singers had no microphones, which meant audiences were quieter, and bringing a pet howler monkey to a performance was twice as irritating. Hoot and holler all you want with this GrouponLive deal to see ABBA – The Concert at the Carnegie Library Music Hall in Munhall on Thursday, August 9, at 7:30 p.m. For $20, you get one ticket for reserved seating in the balcony or rear-floor section (up to a $41.50 value, including all fees).
ABBA tribute show ABBA – The Concert inhabits the shimmering spectacle and uplifting sound of the seminal Scandinavian pop phenomenon, dashing modern fans back to '70s heydays in an unabashedly glamorous performance. Internationally successful because of its infectious spirit, ABBA – The Concert has left other tribute acts in its pixie dust, selling out shows at the Hollywood Bowl and Royal Albert Hall like a pack of sequined Beatles. Often traveling with two original members of ABBA's rhythm section, the tribute band turns ears into funnel cakes as it plays the most iconic ABBA hits, including “Mamma Mia,” “S.O.S.," and "Waterloo."
The opulent, domed Music Hall is housed inside the Carnegie Library of Homestead, a historic building constructed as a "gift to the people" of the Steel Valley. Angled dormers, rounded turrets, and elegant arches mark its grand, castle-like brick façade.
