Free entry for ABBA fans
ABBA have now left Madame Tussauds Blackpool - This offer has now expired
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of ABBA winning the Eurovision Song Contest, fans are invited to party with the bands’ wax figures for free at Madame Tussauds Blackpool on Saturday 10th May ahead of the main event taking place that night in Copenhagen, Denmark.
All fans that come to Madame Tussauds dressed in ABBA-inspired outfits will be granted free entry to the Blackpool attraction so they can visit the stars in the interactive music room before tuning in to the iconic show.
Quite possibly the most famous act to ever win Eurovision, their hit, Waterloo was chosen as the best song in the competition’s history at the 50th anniversary celebration in 2005.
Fans can take inspiration from the ABBA figures who are captured in time, styled in replica from their 1975 video for ‘SOS’. Group members Agnetha and Anni-Frid are wearing yellow and blue mini-dresses teamed with white knee-high leather boots while Benny and Björn are styled in white outfits encrusted with diamantes and sequins finished off with platform boots.
Matthew Titherington, general manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool commented: “ABBA are synonymous with the Eurovision Song Contest, so coming to Madame Tussauds Blackpool is the perfect way to get in the mood for the 2014 show. We’re looking forward to greeting fans dressed as their icons and having a real party atmosphere at the attraction on Saturday.”
The group cost £600,000 to create and took a dedicated team of sculptors and hair and colour artists four months to create.
