My friends don’t understand me….

It’s obvious that my friends don’t understand me, or more they do not understand the meaning of life… My former colleague Agustina entered her work without a clue who Mylène Farmer is… I tried to update her on the obvious: “Take Beatles, ABBA, Rollings Stones, Mozart, Beyoncè and Madonna” and morph them into one person and you will end up with Mylène Farmer.

From my point of view a perfect and very true statement something my next former colleague Sèbastien kind of thought was “en peu” outside real life but at least he admitted that she is a French icon.

So, yesterday I received my ticket for the First Concert in June 2019, yes the FIRST of (I think 7 all together) which i gladly shared on the social media at my disposal and the reaction from my envious friends was – NADA! NIENTE! NONE! AUCUN!

Don’t you understand how jealous you all need to be? Whats wrong with you guys?

So, I only announce this once, I will try to get tickets to at least 2 more of the Concert dates but cheaper seats, “Da Girl is expensive to watch live”

ABBA – New Songs

A surprise if any, new songs by ABBA… The original ABBA… Amazing. Let us hope the boys managed to write a new “The winner takes it all” and we will be home. OK, even if I rather had seen a new 12 track album by Agnetha solo two new ABBA songs will for rock my world when released.

But we have the “but”, at the same time ABBA will tour as avatars, a real band, a real tour but the group will be there as digital avatars. I just ask why? And what will happen with touring in the future? Will Cher go on her “Farwell Tour” after her departure from earth?

And at the same time, with Avicii in mind… This way of touring might have saved him from breaking.

But still, new songs, the second Mamma Mia movie, avatar tour is a marketing package others would kill for.

With that, sit down and sing one of ABBAs best songs, “Money Money Money”

The picture from “Dagens Nyheter” where Björn U claims he bought the world forgot about ABBA… In what universe?
