  • come on Suzi, can't we get The Who back down to SE7?
  • At the moment im away that weekend sausage!
  • Would have loved to come but we have a Firework Party at ours that night.

    :o)
  • Is this the same outfit that have played on The Valley pitch pre match on a few occassions....if so I have to say they were pretty good...no in fact make that very good.
    Abba...I don't and never will...possess a single one of their records and yet there's something about them you just have to admire...simply top class 'pop music' well written and well performed.
    Come on be honest....who of us here have never been at a wedding or party where we've not tripped the light fantastic to Dancing Queen....I know I have and many a time!
  • yes, they did the new years eve party here last year and I think they've been on the pitch before.
    should be a laugh anyway.

    speak to the fans forum, maybe they can get a number for Roger!
  • i am note sure if this was the same group - I thought it was Bjorn Again that performed at the Valley?? They were great looking and the songs were really good 2 !! :-)

    I'm about the only woman in the world who's not been to see Mamma Mia, Suze! Not for me, I'm afraid!!
  • Our work xmas party is an Abba themed night somewhere near Covent Garden.

    Luckily I am going to Prodigy that night so have an excuse.
  • Mamma Mia was an excellent show !!

    that makes two of us Weegie, as the thought of it makes me shudder. I was unlucky enough to see the stage show about 11 years ago and thought the story was poor then, so didn't want my admiration of Colin Firth (would ya?) to be ruined, so chose to avoid all things mamma mia at the cinema too!

    the tribute acts on these nights are only on for about an hour and the rest is eating, drinking and dancing to cheese, so a good night regardless of who is on. the dirty dancing one last time was hilarious as "johnny castle" came out with an american accent as part of his act, and when he started speaking normally, he was a camp english guy who was only about 5 ft 4 - hilarious.

    great time had by all though.

    were you Johnny Castle that night then?
  • I went to see the film the other week. I have never seen the theatre show. Musicals just arent my thing and the film was double cheese but i like a bit of Abba and was singing along.

    Nah, just grew up with 3 elder sisters who tortured me endlessly with Abba tracks!!!
  • If you ever need an Elvis tribute I know a few in the business.
  • Sooz, just seen this.

    Will try & get a few girlies along

    xx
  • i'll be honest and say this is something i'd be quite happy to go along with a crowd to and have a giggle. However, £20 a ticket turns me off instantly. I've no interest in a 'hot buffet' on a night out, and know full well its just a way to drive up the admission price.

    You can go to hundreds of pubs and clubs and get live music, tributes and a dj for little or no entrance fee.

    What sort of turn out do they get for these things ? My own feeling would be that these do's they hold down there would get far greater numbers if it was more sensibly priced.

    Surely its best to get as many people as opssible going regularly, and get them spending over the bar ?

    perhaps i'm off beam with this.
  • there were quite a few of us a the Wham do

    we had a right giggle

    mainly girlies though to be fair

    so you'd fit right in AFKA ;-)

    xx
  • I would happily go to a tribute night, just that ABBA night is more a girlie night IMO, and doesn't really appeal, now Elvis, Tom Jones, The Smiths, definitely.

    I went to the wham one - mostly girls and sold out, hundreds of women. the dirty dancing one also sold out, mostly girls but a few disgruntled husbands. the new years eve one was a mixture of men and women, and also sold out.
    I've managed to persuade a lot of friends to come over the past 3 events, and by bringing my best mate to the last one, she's now booked up one of the xmas lunches for her work do for december which is 3 course xmas meal for about 30quid or something. this time i hadn't even mentioned it but went to a family party last week and relatives were asking if they can come to the abba one, plus a friend that came last time is bringing all her aunts over from essex for the night, and has booked 14 tickets, plus my family and other friends - there are now 25 of us booked in! the food is nice, and does a job and the way it is laid out with the tables per groups is really good because you have a base to go back to when you need a rest from dancing.
  • Well there you go - any of you single lads get yourself down the Valley - just because suzi mentions aunties etc doesnt meant to say the average age is going to be 50 plus...

    Fill your boots.

    I think the christmas party ones are a good idea for local firms to have their staff parties etc.

    "Local Firms" Does that mean the B-mob are invited?

    some people on here might get excited by aunties from essex!
  • fair enough, i never realised they were popular !

    Just saw the Who this week at one of the Indian casino's here in CT. They were Brilliant. I was telling my son that they played as the Valley in front of 70,000 and I spent the day trying to sneak in. He thought they were excellent as well. He was impressed when I told him that Curbishley's brother used to be their manager.
