ABBA – What happened afterwards
The most common question asked at ABBA The Museum over the years is: ABBA – What happened afterwards? What happened when the members of ABBA went their different ways? Now, they are telling the the whole story as ABBA The Museum has expanded.
Thirty-six years have passed since Sweden’s most successful musical export stopped performing together, but their songs are being played today more than ever. Five years after the opening of the museum, comes a completely new exhibition about the group’s members at ABBA The Museum in Stockholm, Sweden – 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 8 May 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.
