Abba Review

Hop to

Abba's 1979 tour of North America and Europe was an adventure marked by excitement and anticipation. Not only did the group tour very rarely, but for the first time their American fans would get a chance to see them perform live. The European leg of the tour was no less thrilling in England Abba achieved the formidable feat of selling out London's Wembley arena for six nights in a row.

This triumphant journey across two continents was vividly captured on film in “Abba In Concert”. In Intimate backstage scenes the group confronts the American touring circuit-travelling, rehearsing, relaxing and preparing for their show. The camera then transports us to London and the unforgettable concert at Wembley Arena and Abba perform hit after hit-Dancing Queen, Waterloo, Take a chance on Me and many more.

The documentary scenes in the film were shot during the American stage of the tour and the concert footage is from London. The film was originally released on VHS in the early 1980's and has been restored for both picture and sound for it's DVD release.
