Agnetha Magazine Interview 2010

Our fabulous Agnetha has done an amazing new interview for M Magasin.
Here is a translation of part of the interview plus some of the wonderful pictures featured in the magazine.

A big Agnetha feature was published in the Swedish magazine "M magasin" available from December 28th, 2010 in Sweden. Agnetha was posing as a model for the magazine as well as she gave an interview in which she describes herself as a happy and stable person being 60.

She says that the most important thing is to be healthy. She goes long walks, training at the gym. She eats everything and she does not follow any diet but she tries to eat good stuff. She still loves ice-cream. She is talking about her favorite clothes.

About flying: it is getting better after a special therapy. She celebrated her 60th birthday on Mallorca together with her family and they went there by plane. It takes about 3 hours and it was ok...

Music: she's got lots of unfinished own compositions lying in a bag at home. She plays piano and sings.

ABBA: Sometimes she is listening to ABBA music and when she hears "The Winner Takes It All" she feels that they did it very well. Another favorite song is "Our Last Summer" performed by Frida. Strange that it did not become a world hit - such a good song, she says.

ABBA comeback: "No and yes. - A one-time basis reunion, perhaps in connection with any charity, I think maybe we all could imagine", says Agnetha.
- We will hardly be reunited for a tour as the Rolling Stones and other old bands do now. But however, I can imagine that we could do something together in the future, she says.
- It's just a feeling I have that it would be fun to get together, talk a bit about the past and may be do something together. But then it has to be something special.
I am open to see the others and do something, she adds, but points out that she had not had contact with Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

Stars in concert for ABBA at the Powerhouse Museum

A ONE-OFF concert celebrating one of the greatest 70's pop groups, ABBA, will be held in Sydney to mark the launch of the new ABBA exhibition.

The three-hour exclusive Sydney event will be hosted by Julia Zemiro, acclaimed comedienne, radio star, actor, SBS TV’s RocKwiz host and lover of Europop, promising an evening of pure ABBA fun!

Prominent Australian singers and songwriters Katie Noonan, iOTA and emerging artist Andy Bull will each perform a selection of their favourite ABBA songs, reinterpreting them to present contemporary versions of the 70s hits.

Director, Dr Dawn Casey, commented that “The artists have been especially selected to deliver a vibrant, fun evening of great music that replicates the pure pop, pure joy and energy that ABBA delivered so well to audiences across the globe in the 70s.
