BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Composers & Musicians

The music of ABBA has lived on beyond the life of the band, and is now a collection of golden classics that are enjoyed by all ages. ABBA Backstage tells the story of this incredible pop group, from their inception all the way to where the group's members are today. Filled with over 150 beautiful images throughout, including never-beforeseen photographs from the members themselves and many sources close to them. ABBA Backstage is perfect for any fan of ABBA, whether you were singing along to 'Waterloo' in the 70s, or only just beginning to tap your foot to its catchy beat.

ABBA outsold and outperformed all their rivals throughout the 1970s, and are still fondly remembered today for superb pop. Written by the director of the ABBA museum in Stockholm, this is a magnificent tribute to the Pop-gods of the 70s and their memorable songs such as: 'Fernando', 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)', 'Waterloo', 'Mamma Mia!' and others.

Ingmarie Halling was responsible for the dressing room, costumes and makeup for ABBA's major tours, providing her with unique insight into backstage life and all the logistics that going on tour involves. Thanks to Ingmarie's wide circle of contacts, many other people that worked behind the scenes tell us what it was like in the good old days. Many of these people have rarely or never talked about their work with ABBA, so there will be plenty of new, fresh anecdotes and reflections from ABBA members.
