Thousands flocked to the Bournemouth International Centre in December 2003 to take a chance on a tribute band.

The band were called Abba The Show and they performed a two-hour set of Abba's greatest hits.

The show was a sell-out and the audience sang along to classics such as Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, and Take a Chance on Me.

They were said to have sounded just like Abba and they even had the same costumes and hairstyles.

These pictures were taken of revellers out to have a good time that evening.
