Since the concert was at Rivinia, I would make sure what kind of tickets are being purchased. I made the mistake of assuming the tickets were for the lawn and instead it was for inside the Pavilion.

Fun show! I have never been to Ravinia and would love to return. By the end everyone was on their feet and dancing! I enjoyed watching the people in the dancing section. Fun time! I would want to take my 10yr old daughter next time.

More Information



Arrival from Sweden formed 13 years ago and today is the largest touring ABBA tribute show in the world, having visited more than 20 nations. It has grown from a six-person production to an incredible spectacle with a dozen cast members performing every song live!

Arrival takes the stage in costumes identical to the ABBA originals, an excusive right granted to them by Owe Sandström, the man behind the design and creation of the ABBA wardrobe. You’ll hear favorites such as “Dancing Queen,” “Money, Money, Money” and “Waterloo.” Arrival’s sound is so close to ABBA’s you’ll believe you’re watching the magic of a real-live ABBA show.

About the Ticket Supplier: Ravinia Festival

There’s more to Ravinia than merely the world’s greatest music. For as many people who walk through Ravinia’s gate each summer, there are just as many ways to enjoy what they call “The Ravinia Experience.”

For some, it all starts with a picnic picked up along the way, followed by a hop on the train and greeting your friends at your favorite spot on the lawn. Gradually, day turns into evening, and from the comfort of your perfect lawn spot, it culminates in a great concert by candlelight as you gaze at the stars above.

For others, it’s a dinner reservation at one of Ravinia’s popular on-site restaurants followed by a casual stroll to the Pavilion, where you go to see and hear the stars on the stage.

Bring your own lavish picnic, treat yourself to an ice cream cone at intermission, or just come as you are and leave the details to them.

Since 1904, Ravinia has been Chicago’s “sound of summer,” a place where you can meet up with your friends, have a wonderful time and hear some of the greatest music in the world. They’ve got stars on the stage and stars in the sky, and it’s all within your reach. Enjoy!
