ABBA: The Backstage Stories - New Book For March 2014

ABBA. The backstage stories
Ingmarie Halling and Carl Magnus Palm

format 245x283 mm, 80 pages, facsimile envelopes all in a box
rights sold: Denmark, UK, Germany, USA

We all remember ABBA for their fantastic music and countless hits – but also the visual side of the group. ABBA’s “outrageous” stage costumes were iconic of 70’s fashion in general and are, apart from the music, the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the name ABBA.

This book includes stories never told before. It includes also facsimile envelopes with personal memories from the four members, never shown before. The three major tours in 1977, 1979 and 1980 all visually rewarding, are given a lot of space in the book. Ingmarie Halling is a close friend to the members and she has made interviews for the book, therefore some of the text will be from today.

The book will be launched in March 2014, 40 years after the win in Brighton with “Waterloo”.

Ingmarie Halling was responsible for the dressing room on ABBA’s major tours. Thanks to Ingmarie’s wide circle of contacts, many other people that worked behind the scenes tell us what it was like in the good old days. Many of these people have rarely or never talked about their work with ABBA, so there will be plenty of new, fresh anecdotes and reflections from ABBA members.

Carl Magnus Palm has been the world’s leading authority on ABBA for the past two decades and has written a number of books about the group. In this book, he will be sharing his knowledge about the history of ABBA.
