A 1983 article from Dutch magazine Hitkrant, announcing the impending end of ABBA.
It’s getting more and more final: in a short interview that ABBA’s Agnetha gave during a performance for German television, she said that she would most definitely choose to pursue a solo career. That would mean the break-up of ABBA, but there are some matters that need to be considered: Agnetha will have to be bought out.
That will take a lot of money and since ABBA has had to cope with a considerable financial loss at the moment due to a certain investment that went wrong, it won’t be that easy to buy Agnetha out. Frida has sold her ABBA-shares, just in time before the financial disaster.
But thankfully there’s also some good news to report from the ABBA-camp: last week, Agnetha officially got engaged to police inspector Torbjörn Brander. He is forty years old and the couple was living together for a while already.
Furthermore, it seems that there will be one more ABBA-album, but after that it looks like the world’s most popular group will come to an end.
Benny and Björn’s musical is about to be released; the pair has put the finishing touch to their childhood dream in London.
