ABBAFEVER 狂戀 ABBA, a show paying tribute to one of the most legendary pop groups of all time, will be performing in Taipei from March 10 - 11 at the Taipei International Convention Center 台北國際會議中心 (No.1 Xinyi Rd. Sec.5, Taipei台北市信義路五段1號). It is the ultimate 70’s show to see, featuring performers bearing resemblances to the original singers in ABBA - Agnetha, Frida, Bjorn and Benny, who formed the most successful popular music group ever to come out of Scandinavia. The quartet topped worldwide charts from the mid 1970s to the early 1980s. They remain a fixture of radio playlists and continue to sell albums - more than 370 million records to date. Songs to be performed include “Mamma Mia,” “Gimme Gimme Gimme,” “Waterloo,” “Thank You For The Music,” and “Dancing Queen.” Tickets, priced from NT$800 - NT$4500, are available through the ERA ticketing system.
The Bellydance Superstars 獨領風騷‧肚皮舞孃 will stage performances throughout the island March 28 - April 1. Belly dancing may not quite be the new rock 'n' roll but it is undoubtedly the biggest thing since Riverdance. Belly dancing is truly demographic defying. The dance has African, Turkish and gypsy origins and was never originally intended for seduction. The perception of belly dancers as sexy babes is actually a Hollywood creation. In fact, the dance is thought to have been invented to help women prepare their abdominal muscles for the rigours of childbirth, and was historically performed by women for women. Today, belly dancing is not just a spectator sport. It is a serious cardiovascular workout and the fastest growing dance and fitness trend all over the world. Proper belly dancing is sensual rather than sexual, and this world-renowned group from America is set to present an eye-feasting experience for not just men but women alike. Tickets, priced NT$800 - NT$2,500, are available through ERA ticketing, or contact Da Da Arts Promotion Co. at (07) 537-0000 for more information.
