ABBA fans can enjoy a tribute act with a difference at a concert this weekend.

The Babes pay homage to all of the Swedish supergroup’s hits – but without the assistance of a Benny or a Bjorn.

Instead the tribute Agnetha and Anni-Frid perfom as a twosome, and will be singing live at Haynes Village Concert Hall on Saturday (November 17).

The two promise powerful vocal performances and fantastic harmonies.

They also undergo multiple costume changes as the shows go on, with all of the glitter and sequins that might be expected, as well as some spectacular dance routines.

The doors open at 7.30pm for an 8.30pm start and tickets are £8 in advance and £10 on the door if they do not sell out beforehand.

Gig goers are also invited to dress glamorously.

For more information or to book tickets contact 01234 381254 or 01234 381122.

There will be free parking and a fully-licensed bar.

Staying on the ABBA tribute theme, The Crown pub in Stotfold will also be getting in on the act on Saturday.

The ABBA Queens perform as a duo and as a foursome, and one of the members has performed in other ABBA tribute bands like Planet ABBA and Mamma Mia.

They also include regular costume changes and even adopt Swedish accents for their shows.

Over in Biggleswade rock and roll covers band Just for Kicks will be on the bill at The Red Lion pub on Saturday.

The five-piece band play classics from the 1950s and 1960s and promise that your evening will go with a swing.

Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Little Richard are just a few of the names that the band pay tribute to.

The Engineer’s Arms will be the venue to go for a performance by Gareth Icke on Friday (November 16) meanwhile.

Disco Inferno Late Bar will be playing at Potton & District Club on Saturday.

Rock covers will also feature at The White Hart Hotel in Shefford on Friday, courtesy of Gunslinger.

The band tailor their set lists to suit the crowd they play for, but popular acts punters might hear include ZZ Top, Bad Company, Thin Lizzy and Deep Purple.

For those looking to boogie on down, The Noah’s Ark pub in Shillington could be the place to be heading on Saturday, where a disco night will be taking place.

Punk rocking skinheads The Business are also playing in Bedford on Friday, November 23.

And what a lot of rocking it’s been, the band formed in 1979 playing their first gig to their mates in 1980.

Rooted firmly in the second wave of punk the band still have a following to die for and have influenced the likes of Rancid and Blink 182.
