The MagazineOur magazine (32 pages, many in colour, A5) will not only keep you up to date with all the latest news, but it will give even the most devoted fans new insights, thanks to exclusive interviews with the people that worked with ABBA back in the days, stories about records and memorabilia for both beginners and advanced collectors, a Q&A section and specials about different events in the careers of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. This is also the place to look for competitions where you can win things that are autographed by all four members, get tickets to shows, get the latest Fan Club Shop catalogue and much more. We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers. Every now and then, there is a special gift with the magazine, like the sought-after CDs that Polar made for us. We are proud to say that several of the people in the inner circle around ABBA have asked for a subscription and, of course, the ABBA members themselves get their own copies.
The magazine is published four times a year, very occasionally with extra newsletters in between. The magazine is published in English. A translation in French is available on request.
Magazine 141 is published on the 1st December
This issue contails a variety of exciting articles, including Björn's latest project to bring Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking to Stockholm's Circus – with a little help of music written by Benny. We have reports on Mamma Mia! The Party opening its doors in London as well as a fascinating piece of research on the Hep Stars in the Netherlands. This issue also includes an interview with ABBA photographer Rob Verhorst and a fan who parted with his ABBA collection so that it can be shown in London at the new Super Troupers exhibition at The O2.
As always, we have found fabulous pictures for you and, of course, there is so much more, including our regular features – memorabilia, old releases/record companies, posters, news and our competition in which you can win exciting items – this time including an item autographed by all four ABBA members.
