Newark Palace Theatre to host Thank Abba For The Music and Rod Stewart tribute Some Guys Have All The Luck
Two tribute acts take to the stage at Newark’s Palace Theatre next week, recreating the look and sounds of two great musical acts whose popularity shows no signs of waning.
Thank Abba For The Music is at the Palace on Saturday.
It is a two-hour theatre spectacular that captures all of the magic and excitement of one of pop history’s most iconic bands.
With stunning costumes, live band, interactive video projection and, of course, ABBA’s spectacular trademark harmonies, it is billed as the ultimate feel-good party show.
It features all of Abba’s greatest hits, including Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, Fernando, Super Trouper and many more.
That is followed by Some Guys Have All The Luck — a tribute to Rod Stewart — on Wednesday.
Direct from the West End, the show celebrates the career of one of rock’s greatest icons, following his journey from street busker to international superstar.
Paul Metcalfe delivers an authentic and charismatic performance as Rod Stewart, from the distinctive vocals to his showmanship.
Paul said: “I absolutely love it and I feel very lucky that other people seem to love it as well. When I’m on stage I go into another world and do things I wouldn’t normally dream of doing.
The production charts Rod Stewart’s career chronologically and highlights some of the significant strokes of luck during his stellar career.
It also features songs from his time with The Faces, as well as a full concert production in the second half with hits including Maggie May, Baby Jane, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?, Sailing and You’re in My Heart.
Paul said: “I think Rod’s music brings back a lot of memories for people, and everyone can remember the first time they heard Maggie May. Rod has such an amazing back catalogue of songs and such variety. Wonderful ballads, joyful upbeat songs and some great rockers as well.”
