Everybody knows ABBA, the iconic band that created, not only music for generations, but also lyrics that are timeless and sustainable for future generations.
Thirty-six years have passed since Sweden’s most successful musical export stopped performing together, but their songs are played today more than ever. Five years after the opening of ABBA The Museum in Stockholm, Sweden, comes a completely new exhibition about the group’s members – an exhibition depicting everything that happened after their years in ABBA. Visitors are taken on a journey through the decades of music focusing on Anni-Frid, Björn, Benny, and Agnetha. The exhibition opens to the public on May 8, 2018.
"Anything can happen – and has happened – when creativity is allowed to flow. The new exhibition will be full of gems," says Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
"Because we pushed our creativity in so many directions after the ABBA years, I think the new exhibition is like a wonderful amusement park. And the most fantastic thing of all is that the journey never ends. We are on our way into a new, exciting adventure, there is more to come!", says Björn Ulvaeus.
"We never really bade farewell to one another. We wanted to try new things, and the time never seemed right for a reunion. Yet the music has, of course, never left me. Much of what we achieved during the years after ABBA is now presented in the exhibition," says Benny Andersson.
"The ABBA story did not end in 1982. One thing led to another, and the journey continued. We now see that in this exhibition," says Agnetha Fältskog.
