Britain had the Beatles and Sweden had ABBA. Formed in Stockholm in 1972, the group put Sweden on the global pop map. It was one of the most successful bands in history with sales of more than 375 million records worldwide and still draws new fans thanks to the hit musical Mamma Mia.
Guided walks of Stockholm’s ABBA land will be over for the season by the time of the Forum, but we can do our own, starting at the City Hall where Benny performed for the very first time, continuing to the Sheraton Hotel, one of many places ABBA videos were recorded and one of the city‟s most distinctive 1970s landmarks, and on to the Royal Opera, the scene of Abba’s 1976 royal wedding gala performance.
