Laguna Phuket, the island’s premier event venue, was top of the bill last night as the host venue of a tribute show to ABBA Concert by the UK tribute band of the famous 70’s pop group. The Concert was sold out for the night of Friday, 8 November and continues on today, Saturday, 9 November, from 6.30pm onwards, marking the band’s first appearance on the island.
Staged in a purpose-built marquee and hospitality complex on a tree-lined setting overlooking one of the resort’s lagoons, the two-night Concert features live performances by the UK tribute band to ABBA and famous DJs from local radio stations as the Concert’s emcees.
The weekend musical extravaganza is a change of key for Laguna Phuket, better known for hosting major sporting events such as the Laguna Phuket International Marathon, Laguna Phuket Triathlon and Challenge Laguna Phuket which draw thousands of athletes and spectators to the island as well as its annual Summer Family Festival.
Hundreds of music lovers are expected over the 2 days and the event also has a charity angle, with part proceeds go to Laguna Phuket Foundation.
“We’re delighted to showcase our versatility by staging such a prestigious and popular musical event,” said David Seet, Senior Assistant Vice President – Resorts Operations, of Laguna Phuket. “The Concert is a renowned event in UK and the band has performed many international and national tours. We gladly welcome the band to Laguna Phuket and to perform at our resort.”
“It’s particularly pleasing that the Concert brings more art & soul elements to Phuket. The island, like Laguna Phuket, is known for many wonderful things. We believe this Concert showcases Phuket’s potential in this arena and we hope to see more concerts, performing arts and cultural shows on our beloved island.”
