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 today's GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get one reserved-seating ticket to see ABBA the Concert (a $40 value) and a concessions voucher for $10 worth of food and drinks at Orlando Jai-Alai in Fern Park on Saturday, January 21, at 8 p.m. (a $50 total value). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating is located in the rear orchestra in sections A through E.
ABBA tribute band 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 due to 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 original members of ABBA's feckless rhythm section, the tribute band turns ear canals into funnel cakes as it plays the most iconic ABBA hits, including “Mama Mia”, “S.O.S.," and "Waterloo."
With today’s Groupon, fans also receive a concessions voucher, good for $10 worth of food and drink, including beer ($5), mixed drinks ($3.50–$5), premium hot dogs ($2.95), and pizza ($2.50). The voucher must be used in one visit to the concessions stand, so fans are advised to momentarily refrain from playing air tambourine while ordering.
