Mamma Mia — Let Me Go: Freddie's Birthday Bash
This dedicated ABBA vs Queen night will rock your inner dancing queen.
Ever since Freddie Mercury teamed up with Brian May and company back in the 70s, Queen has never been out of fashion. Thanks to Bohemian Rhapsody, however, the band has been roaring up the charts again. You could call it a kind of magic. You could say that their songs must go on. Either way, if you're happy to let the British group keep rocking you — and you need something to fill the void until the remaining band members tour Australia next year — then head along to The Brightside on Friday, September 6.
Been feeling a crazy little thing called love for Freddie and his bandmates? Eager to celebrate Mercury's birthday, albeit a day later? Then you'll be in the right spot. And if your approach to the group's music is "I want it all!", that's what you'll hear at Mamma Mia — Let Me Go. And well as ABBA songs, too, because why not?
The one-night event will break free from 9pm, so get ready to unleash your inner dancing queen and thank everyone for the music. Here we go again, indeed. If you're wondering how much money, money, money it'll set you back, tickets cost $13.98 — and buying in advance is recommended, because it's likely to sell out.
Because it's a hard life, DJs will spin both band's tunes, and you and your fellow champions and super troupers will take a chance on dancing and singing along. You'll be able to say 'gimme, gimme, gimme' to other tracks from huge artists of the 70s and 80s, too. Basically, prepare to step back in time — and if you miss out, you'll feel a little under pressure.
