ABBA singing "Dancing Queen" for the Swedish King and Queen

Hi

Has anyone seen the footage of ABBA singing Dancing Queen for the King and Queen of Sweden?

I remember seeing when I was very young. I think it was filmed in the late 70's.

ABBA were in period costume.

Thanks very much

I think this may be it, it's in the middle of the page :)
It says something about the Swedish King.

Thanks for that stroll down memory lane Australian,
1979 certainly was a very busy year for ABBA. It was great to see the pictures of them again, I can't believe I used to wear costumes like the girls and sing all their songs using my hair brush as a mic.

I believe they performed before the king and his bride Silvia the night before (or around) their wedding as part of the wedding celebrations.
I haven't seen the whole thing, just parts, in documentaries about the swedish wedding.

I was for the first time in a long while listening to ABBA while doing housework yesterday. Dancing Queen is a fabulous song and ABBA are one of the great groups ever. Although the song was not written for Silvia it will always be associated with her.

Yes, it was great!
It was a fantastic idea!
The costumes looked really dramatical!

Here are two pictures of the performance:
Anni-Frid Lyngstad (now Princess Reuss) & Agnetha Fltskog performing "Dancing Queen"

Just wondering...

She married Prince Heinrich Ruzzo Reuss von Plauen in 1992, he died 7 years later of cancer (?). I also think he went to school with King Carl Gustav and she has become friends with Queen Silvia. There are pictures of her at King Carl Gustav 60th birthday party.

You mean: The King and his fiance.



She was not married on that moment. That was to happen the day after.

Here is a thread about the Princely House of Reuss:

You can also find pictures of Anni-Frid attending Carl Gustav's birthday there.

Another performance for Silvia

There was another ABBA-performance for Queen Silvia:

Anni-Frid Lyngstad and The "Real Group" performed "Dancing Queen" on a Birthday Gala of Queen Silvia (when she turned 50) in 1993

Here's a video





Queen Silvia watching her

I wonder if they are saying that Silvia IS a Dancing Queen? I'm sure she is.

So ABBA is finally singing as a group now? Good to know.

They're not, unfortunately. They were reportedly offered $1 billion if they got back together & do a world tour, but they declined.
As one of the <original> abba fans, , I'm of the opinion it's a huge bummer.

So am I
But hey.
We see Benny Andersson , Bjrn Unlveus and Anni-Frid Reuss so often! They attend nearly every "Mamma Mia" event. Last year even Agnetha Fltskog came to the MammaMia premier in Stockholm! So , all 4 together!
Have a look on this site if you are interested: www.raffem.com
Bjrn and Frida just attended MammaMia in Moscow.

I think that's very cool that Sylvia is friends with Anni-Frid. I love Abba!
If the group socialize (which means they get along) I wonder why they would turn down 1 billion dollars. But maybe they make enough money (royalties) from the MamaMia shows. btw I saw this show and I really enjoyed it!

Countdown!

For those Australians with good memories, Countdown showed this clip at the time (thanks Molly!).
The youtube versions don't do the performance justice. The sound was full, and the emotion was palpable. It was very special.
As an aside, even on youtube Silvia's Connaught tiara glitters and sparkles very nicely.
