Perhaps all of the above. The area was restricted and deserted. Present were the three members of the GD's party, myself and another volunteer.
The driver and the assistant were outside the locked gate we escorted them to. A simple nod would have sufficed in my view, being treated as if we were invisible was an insult.

I'm not sure if ABBA themselves actually performed. I read somewhere that they were dancing to the music of ABBA during the festival. I can't remember where I read it (sorry!).

The royal family of Luxembourg attended the opening of the Open Air Festival of Wiltz featuring the best ABBA revival group ever - cover band ABBA Fever. Their show is called Thank You for the Music. The English press has called the show the "best performance of ABBA since ABBA". ABBA hasn't performed together since 1986.
