Bjorn Again

Björn Again will appear as special guest of Steps at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer as part of Forestry Commission Live Music. The internationally acclaimed Björn Again show was created and founded by Rod Stephen in 1988 in Melbourne, Australia and has gone on to perform an incredible 4,700 concerts in 70 countries over 24 years. Songs like ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Money, Money, Money’ and ‘Take A Chance On Me’ are bound to get the Westonbirt audience up on their feet as the Björn Again show perform Abba’s greatest hits in its own inimitable style.
Steps have recently completed a highly successful UK arena tour, captured on the popular Sky Living show: ‘Steps: On the Road Again’. The Brit-award winning group comprising Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian Watkins (aka H) dominated the charts over a five year period. An impressive run of 14 consecutive top five singles that got the nation dancing included: ‘One For Sorrow’, ‘Heartbeat/Tragedy’, ‘Love’s Got A Hold Of My Heart’, ‘Deeper Shade Of Blue’, ‘After The Love Has Gone’, ‘When I Said Goodbye/Summer Of Love’ and ‘Stomp’.
