The folkpark tour 1975

The tour

  • Summer tour through Swedish folk parks.
  • Audience: 100,000 altogether, free entrance for children under 7
  • Rehearsals began on June 1 at the Jarla theatre in Stockholm.
  • On the way to the first venue in Skellefteå ABBA stayed at Rämshyttan for some days.
  • Two concerts had to be cancelled and rescheduled because Agnetha was ill.
  • Swedish TV was proposed to tape the tour for a documentary, but they declined. As stated at the fanclub day in April 2016 Universal Music Sweden have no recordings of this tour in their archives, so we only can hope that there still are some official audio recordings elsewhere.

    Note:

    • Set list based on the fan recording of the concert at Eskilstuna. In ABBA The Book Jean-Marie Potiez writes about 18 songs, i.e. two more than the recording suggests. Because the tour poster mentions Ring, Ring it may be assumed that it actually also was part of the usual set list.
    • Additional elements of the shows were fireworks and soap bubbles.
