ABBA Mania

In 1977, the band could have sold out London’s famous Royal Albert Hall a whopping 580 times. ABBA’s first concerts scheduled in the UK included two dates at the venue. 3,5 million ABBA-loving Brits applied via mail for the 12,000 available seats.

A bizarre conspiracy theory regarding the band’s male members has been making its rounds for decades. Back in the eighties, the world press discovered that Benny and Bjorn had never been photographed together alone. The fact sparked rumors that the ABBA men were, in fact, the same person. Forensic scientists would later put the strange theory to rest when they studied pictures of the pair, Benny parted his hair to the left while Bjorn had his parted to the right.

Anni-Frid Synni, commonly known to fans as Frida, actually went on to become royalty. In 1986, Frida began a high profile romance with Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss von Plauen who was a prince of the former sovereign German House of Reuss. The former ABBA star became a royal after marrying the prince in 1992, earning the titles of Princess Reuss and Countess of Plauen.

During its extensive and wildly impressive musical history, ABBA has broken a string of world records. The band itself has sold between 400-500 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. The pop group was the very first group from a non-English-speaking country to have earned top spots in charts in all English-speaking countries including Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and The United States.
