1975 TOUR OF THE SWEDISH FOLKPARKS > TOUR DESCRIPTION
During the summer of 1975, Björn, Benny, Agnetha and Frida made their second and last trek of the Swedish folkparks, although it was much less extensive than the outing two years earlier.
The folkpark circuit had traditionally been a very modest set-up, where artists were expected to perform two or sometimes three gigs a day – at different venues. They would rush in to the park, set up their gear and storm through a 30-minute show before dashing off to the next engagement.
In 1975, ABBA were bona fide pop stars and had altogether different ambitions with their concerts, bringing a quite elaborate show with special effects into the parks. In part, the tour also served to compensate for a cancelled outing planned for the previous summer.
