IF YOUR love for the Bee Gees and ABBA is deep, then the Ipswich Civic Centre is the place to be next Sunday night.

Flared pants, outrageous costumes, hairstyles and the hit songs of these two famous bands will be combined into one high-energy show.

Tribute bands the Ultimate Bee Gees and Abba Rebjorn will take the stage with set lists of cover songs.

The Christmas with the Ultimate Bee Gees and Abba Rebjorn concert will showcase dozens of the timeless classics of the disco era.

The combined show is a revival concept made up of an international cast, who are dedicated to remembering the pop and disco music of the 1960s and '70s.

Queensland is familiar territory for the original Bee Gees, who grew up in Redcliffe.

The band, made up of three brothers, achieved fame in the late 1960s as a pop act, and later in the disco era of the '70s.

The Bee Gees recorded their first chart success with Spicks and Specks, their 12th single, and then travelled to the United Kingdom to perform on an international stage.

The Ultimate Bee Gees, the band dedicated to reviving the brothers' music, will be joined on stage by the punnily-titled Abba Rebjorn.

Abba Rebjorn is dedicated to ABBA, the Swedish pop group that formed in 1972 and rose to worldwide fame.

The Ipswich tribute concert will start at 7.30pm on December 16.

Tickets cost $48 for adults and $45 for students, children and concession-card holders.

Phone 3810 6100, visit ipswichciviccentre.com.au or drop into the Ipswich City Council Customer Service Centre to purchase tickets.
