DEARBORN, Michigan – Perfect for a Valentine’s date — or a girl’s night out with friends: A rocking evening featuring the music of ABBA performed by Arrival From Sweden followed by the Ultimate Dance Party on Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center (The Center).
Arrival’s performance of smash hit ABBA tunes in the Michael A. Guido Theater begins at 8 p.m. featuring some of the most upbeat, feel good sounds of the 70’s. You know them all – “Dancing Queen,” “Take A Chance On Me,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You” and all the hits featured in both the musical and movie “Mama Mia.”
Arrival is the only group sanctioned by ABBA to perform their classic hits.
Immediately following the performance, the season’s Ultimate Dance Party, open to those 21 and over, kicks off at 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. in The Center’s Hubbard Ballroom.
Under a spectacular light display, party goers will groove to more ABBA music and other tunes mixed by two of Detroit’s favorite DJs – Ray G of Detroit and MMK of South Beach. Included in the evening will be other entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar featuring specialty ABBA drinks.
Tickets to only the Ultimate Dance Party are $15 at the door. Individual Arrival concert ticket prices vary.
Combination concert/Ultimate Dance Party tickets offer special benefits. VIP tickets are $100 and include premium front section concert seating, an opportunity to meet the performers, Ultimate Dance Party admission, and two drink tickets.
