ABBA In Concert (Music-DVD)
Delivery time: 1-3 working days
Compared to their top-level competition on the international rock music scene in the 1970s, ABBA made very few international concert tours. Their only major outings were the 1977 tour of Europe and Australia and then the tour of North America and Europe in 1979. This last tour was made into a film, ABBA In Concert, which vividly captures the four Swedes on stage at the height of their fame.
The documentary scenes in ABBA In Concert, offering an intimate look at the group’s life on the road, were filmed in the United States in September and October 1979. The sparkling concert performances were captured at Wembley Arena in London, England, in November.
This new DVD version of ABBA In Concert comes with three bonus performances, filmed in conjunction with the television special. The Way Old Friends Do was a part of the film when ABBA In Concert was broadcast in Japan and the United States, but was not included elsewhere. I Have A Dream was featured in ABBA In Concert, but in the film the performance is interrupted by rehearsal footage. This bonus track version is the complete version of the song, without the rehearsals. Thank You For The Music, finally, has never been seen anywhere before – the filmed performance was not even edited at the time – and is an exclusive feature on this DVD.
The ABBA In Concert DVD contains brand new interviews with ABBA’s trusted promoter and tour producer, Thomas Johansson, and with the director of the film, Urban Lasson. In the interviews, Johansson and Lasson share their memories of the 1979 tour and the making of ABBA In Concert. The DVD will also feature a picture gallery and trailers. The booklet for ABBA In Concert is fully illustrated and features a 5,500-word essay by Carl Magnus Palm.
