ABBA, Queen and The Bee Gees are three of the most influential pop and rock groups of all time.

This spectacular Barnyard Theatre Production takes you on a trip through space and time in the 70s and the 80s when glitz, glam and some of the greatest pop tunes ever written emerged. Thank You for the Music features an 11-piece cast that covers all the hits of the three super groups. The show starts with the early days of The Bee Gees in the late sixties, with harmonic soft rock hits such as Words, I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You, Massachusetts, To Love Somebody. We then move on to an authentic impersonation of the Gibb Brothers’ falsetto as they go on to re-ignite the disco groove - You Should Be Dancing, Stayin’ Alive and Jive Talking. The show then features songs from the days when ABBA lit up the music scene with their first hits Ring Ring and Waterloo, after which they followed on with countless pop anthems - Chiquitita , SOS, Mamma Mia, Take a Chance on Me as well as power ballads The Winner Takes it All and Eagle . We then pay tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time – Queen, featuring one of the greatest voices in the history of rock – Freddie Mercury. You can look forward to the uplifting anthem Don’t Stop Me Now and thought provoking ballad Too Much Love Will Kill You. The unforgettable hits We Are the Champions, Who Wants to Live Forever and The Show Must Go On add an electrifying flare to the show. The show also pays tribute to the Broadway Musicals associated with these groups as we celebrate the hits from Mamma Mia, Saturday Night Fever and We Will Rock You. Experience the power of the epic Bohemian Rhapsody, the fun of Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (a Man After Midnight) , Dancing Queen and I Want to Break Free as well as the beauty of How Deep is Your Love and Tragedy.

Thank You for the Music is about showmanship, charisma, harmony and the power of three pop and rock groups uniting together in one mind-blowing concert.
