The Swedish pop group ABBA is a worldwide sensation which continues to lure millions of young and old fans to their infectious feel-good songs through films (Muriel’s Wedding, Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) and the Broadway musical and recent film hit Mamma Mia! In an interview with the Associated Press, songwriter Bjorn Ulvaeus stated that ABBA would never do a reunion tour. “Money is not a factor, and we would like people to remember us as we were. Young, exuberant, full of energy and ambition.” Well, here is your opportunity to relive the ABBA phenomenon!
This year marks the 40th anniversary of ABBA’s first hit, Waterloo, which won them the 1974 Eurovision song contest and catapulted them to the world stage and rock stardom.
