Revival refuses to be just another tribute show – these guys really deliver! Each of the team members are specialists in their respective instruments, not only in qualifications and performance, but in teaching as well.

The team are constantly reassessing the arrangements and video footage of the real group to ensure they stay as true to ABBA as possible.
With each song building on the last, swelling the dance floor, even the biggest party grouch will be throwing shapes in no time – nobody can sit still while they storm through their set of epic numbers, all sung live and in perfect harmony, just like the real thing! Even after the final encore Revival never fail to leave the crowd shouting for more. Providing a Tribute act experience for you and your guests that they will never forget!
Tickets are priced at Dhs195 per person, and are inclusive of a quintessential picnic basket per couple, featuring delicious Scottish smoked salmon with Russian vegetable salad served with artisan breads, vintage cheese, walnuts and homemade chutney, pasta salad with tomato, pesto and buffalo mozzarella bocconcini, chilled roasted chicken, asparagus and goats’ cheese quiche followed by a delicious New York style baked cheese cake with mix berries.
