ABBA Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

ABBA was a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972, comprising Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. ABBA is an acronym of the first letters of the band members' first names (Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid) and is sometimes stylized as the registered trademark ????. They became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1975 to 1982. They are also known for winning in the Eurovision Song Contest 1974, giving Sweden its first victory in the history of the contest and being the most successful group ever to take part in the competition.ABBA have sold over 380 million albums and singles worldwide, which makes them one of the best-selling music artists of all time, and the second best selling music group of all time. ABBA was the first group to come from a non-English-speaking country that enjoyed consistent success in the charts of English-speaking countries, including the UK, Ireland, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The group also enjoyed significant success in Latin American markets, and recorded a collection of their hit songs in Spanish.During the band's active years, Fältskog and Ulvaeus were very much in love, and married, as were Lyngstad and Andersson, although both couples later divorced. At the height of their popularity, both relationships were suffering strain which ultimately resulted in the collapse of the Ulvaeus-Fältskog marriage in 1979 and the Andersson-Lyngstad marriage in 1981. These relationship changes were reflected in the group's music, with later compositions including more introspective, brooding, dark lyrics.After ABBA broke up in late 1982, Andersson and Ulvaeus achieved success writing music for the stage while Lyngstad and Fältskog pursued solo careers with mixed success. ABBA's music declined in popularity until several films, notably Muriel's Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, revived interest in the group, spawning several tribute bands. In 1999, ABBA's music was adapted into the successful musical Mamma Mia! that toured worldwide. A film of the same name, released in 2008, became the highest-grossing film in the United Kingdom that year. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on 15 March 2010.ABBA were honored at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, when their hit "Waterloo" was chosen as the best song in the competition's history.

ProfessionSoundtrack, Actor, Music Department
1Flamboyant on-stage gear / knee-high platform-soled boots / tinsel headgear
1ABBA's musical, "Chess" at the Marriott Theatre in Chicago, Illinois was nominated for a 1990 Joseph Jefferson Equity Award for Musical Production.
2They have 9 #1 singles and albums in the UK. They have sold over 18 million albums in the UK alone, making them the 7th best selling UK album artists of all time.
3"Waterloo" is the most successful song to come from the Eurovision Song Contest, topping several charts worldwide and selling over 6 million copies. On 22 October 2005, during the 50th celebration of the Eurovision Song Contest, "Waterloo" was chosen as the best song in the competition's history.
4In 2009, the British performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited celebrated its 75th anniversary by listing the 75 songs that have played most in Great Britain on the radio, in clubs and on jukeboxes. "Dancing Queen" was number eight on the list.
5Anni-Frid_Lyngstad and Benny Andersson were engaged in August 1969 but did not marry until October 1978. They divorced in 1981. Agnetha_Fältskog and Björn Ulvaeus married in July 1971 before filing for divorce in 1979, which was finalized in June 1980. The 1980 single "The Winner Takes It All" was written by Björn in the aftermath of their divorce and became a major hit single.
6During one of their live shows in Perth in 1977, an anonymous phone call informed that there was a bomb somewhere at the venue. Everyone except Benny (playing the instrumental piece "Intermezzo No 1") was evacuated. There was no bomb though and both the audience and the artists later returned to the venue and continued the evening.
7Were once offered a billion dollars to do a reunion tour.
8The band only ever toured 3 times in its history. This was mainly to do with them wanting to be the headliner and not the opening act. In fact, they had only played 23 live dates in total before their 1979 tour in support of "Voulez Vous". That tour was the only time the band toured North America and would also prove to be their last world tour.
9"Dancing Queen" is their only US number single. They scored 9 other top 20 hit singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 between 1974 and 1980.
10Have never scored a top 10 album in the U.S. Their highest charting album there is "ABBA: The Album" which made #14 in 1978.
11Their 1976 single "Fernando" has sold 10 million copies worldwide. In Australia the single spent 14 weeks at number one and 40 weeks on the singles chart. It topped the chart in 13 countries and sold over 6 million copies in 1976 alone.
12"Abba Gold" has occupied every position in the top 75 of the U.K. album chart, while also appearing in the chart every year since the release except for 2002 and 2006. It now jointly holds the title of longest time spent in the album charts (490 weeks in the Top 100) with "Greatest Hits Vol 1" by Queen.
13"Abba Gold" has sold over 28 million copies worldwide. It is Abba's most successful album and one of the biggest-selling albums of all time. It is the third biggest selling album of all-time in the UK with sales exceeding 4.6 million copies.
14Have sold over 375 million records, making them the fourth best-selling music artists in the history of music.
15All four members of the group were the first-born children in their respective families. Anni-Frid Lyngstad was an only child. The other three each had one sister and no brothers.
16Before 1974, the members of the group resisted using the name ABBA, which was what fans and disk jockeys were starting to call them. A Swedish seafood company had trademarked the name in 1906. (As with the singing group, the seafood company's name was an acronym. It stands for "AB Bröderna Ameln" which translates to "Ameln Brothers, Ltd.") In 1974, the two ABBAs agreed to a deal where the singing group would pay a licensing fee to the seafood company in exchange for the use of its name.
17In addition to Mamma Mia! (2008), an earlier film that also features the music of ABBA is the highly acclaimed Muriel's Wedding (1994).
18As of 2008, more than 30 million fans worldwide have seen the stage production "Mamma Mia!" When adapted for the screen, Mamma Mia! (2008) went on to become the most successful movie in the UK's box office history, outstripping the record heretofore held by the Harry Potter series.
19At the Swedish premiere of Mamma Mia! (2008), the foursome were seen together, in public, for the first time in 22 years.
20Not only were ABBA the most successful Swedish band in pop history, they were the most successful pop act to emerge from a Eurovision Song Contest victory (1974), apart from Céline Dion, who represented Switzerland in 1988.
21Their popular songs were mostly composed by Björn Ulvaeus (lyrics) and Benny Andersson (music).
22Artists who have requested permission to use samples of ABBA songs include: Fugees ("The Name of the Game" for "Rumble in the Jungle"), Madonna ("Gimme Gimme Gimme" for "Hung Up"), etc.
23Created the band's name ABBA by taking the first letter of the first name of each band member and flanking the males' initials with the females' initials.
24In 1975, "SOS" became the first song with a palindromic title recorded by a group with a palindromic name - Abba - to score a Top 20 hit on the pop charts.
25Anni-Frid Lyngstad was the only non-Swedish member of the group. She is Norwegian.
266th April 1974: Won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton, England, with the song "Waterloo".
27Members have included Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
