ABBA tribute band Arrival from Sweden: The Music of ABBA! 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. Standing head and golden neckerchiefs above other ABBA tributes, Arrival from Sweden’s shimmering harmonies and impeccable impersonations have earned the respect and wardrobe rights of their palindromed heroes. 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,” “Dancing Queen,” and "Fernando."
Ford Community & Performing Arts Center
A 1,201-seat auditorium that values acoustic excellence as much as visual grandeur, the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center houses ornate wooden accents and intricate wall panels that soar over a sweeping balcony peppered with plush red seats. Ample wheelchair seating and elevators to all levels abound, ensuring audience members seated in the balcony won’t need to rely on the creaky wooden catapults still in use at many theaters.
