“Ready, Perth, Here We Come !”
ABBA departed Adelaide at 12 noon and arrived in Perth at 1.30pm local time.
For full details plus lots of images and clippings about this day, follow the link below to my blog post from 2016.
Perth is the last stop on this tour and ABBA will perform 5 concerts here over 3 days – starting with 2 shows tomorrow night.
Rather than going straight to the hotel where they were staying, The Parmelia Hotel, Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny & Frida went straight to the Swan River for a sail on the yacht Sir Henry Merkin. “The girls brought their bikinis in their hand luggage”, said promoter Patti Mostyn at the Parmelia. “They have not had any time off since they arrived in Australia and they wanted a swim.” Some of the most famous photographs of ABBA during the 1977 Concert Tour are in fact those taken on the Swan River.
