ABBA BABBA DO - We Are The Dancing Queens!!!

On Friday night we took JoJo to see Australia's premier ABBA show ~BABBA~
It's Saturday night...stage all geared up ready for the band...
Wind back to Saturday morning...and here's JoJo with her blue hair...and it looked great...she was so pleased with it!!!

Standing in front of the stage...ready and waiting for it all to start...

They came on and sang up a storm...

BABBA is the most exciting and musically accurate ABBA tribute in the world...The vocal ability of this sensational act has stunned audiences in Australia, South East Asia and New Zealand since it began in 1994, bringing them to their feet.
It is BABBA's attention to detail in every way that makes this tribute to the 70's Super Group ABBA one of the most exciting and visually entertaining shows to be found.
The costumes, the choreography and the music will transport you back in time and you will fall in love with this amazing group all over again...text from the Programme ...

Great costumes...



This Armchair Queen turned into a Dancing Queen...I managed to get JoJo up towards the end to have our own little dance...she was dubbed Dancing Princess by the lovely Kath...check out her delightful blog for all the goings on from a Crafter in the Chilterns over in England...

Check out Benny's feather on his left shoulder...he was so nice and had a few words with JoJo...

and managed to get the group to pose with her...
JoJo is standing over my shoulder watching as I type this post up...she is so excited still...and yes, the blue hair is still there!!!

Over the weekend I developed a cold...and JoJo came home on Tuesday from her Day Programme with a bowl of Chicken and Corn Soup that she had made...she has a cooking programme that day...
Upon arriving home she said to me...For you Mum...make you better...
Thank You dear Joanna...it was lovely!!!
We should be great, each of us radiant,
Full of music and full of stories

This music reminds me so of my college dorm days. What fun! Jo Jo looks beautiful with her blue hair! The photo of you two is fabulous and what a thrill to have Jo Jo pose with the band. What a wonderful night and such lasting memories.

How wonderful! Sounds and looks like you had a blast. I can't believe how much you've done to your blog. It really looks great. You've become a real whiz on the computer! Hope you're feeling better. I thought of you when I decided to do a seasonal header - I thought '...but it's not summer for Dzintra!' How cold does it actually get there in Australia? Sending you big hugs -

What a great night out! I saw Babba years ago when they were in Tas - it was so much fun!

Millie said...

Wow Dzintra (& Jo-Jo!) that truly looks like a night to remember! And that blue hair - very groovy! Chicken & Sweet Corn soup is one of my all time favourites, still use my favourite recipe from the Women's Weekly Chinese Cookbook circa 1978, have never found a better one. Have a lovely weekend dear.
Millie ^_^
