More information to come !!




Abba were together for only nine years, but their popularity seems undiminished three-and-a-half decades later. They are one of the few bands to hold out against reforming, creating a huge appetite around any kind of new take on their music. Abba Gold, the compilation of the band’s hits, released in 1992, a decade after they split, is one of the top-selling albums of all time. In 1999, the musical Mamma Mia! opened and has become one of the top 10 musicals playing in the West End and in Broadway. The film of the same title, which was released in 2008, is the highest grossing live action musical of all time. In 2010, the exhibition Abbaworld toured several countries with costumes and memorabilia from the band. In 2013, it found a permanent home in Stockholm at the Abba Museum. Within a year, 350,000 visitors had flocked through its doors not just to gawp at the band’s over-the-top costumes, but to try them on and sing on a stage alongside holograms of Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Anni-Frid.
