Mamma Mia Premiere

Mamma Mia! Premiere

Well, a reunion of sorts for one of my favorite groups, ABBA. According to Reuters, the ABBA foursome made a rare appearance together on July 4 for the premiere of Mamma Mia! The Movie in Stockholm.  In the picture, from left to right are: ABBA’s Benny Andersson, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep, Abba members Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Christine Baranski, Colin Firth, screenwriter Catherine Johnson (pointing), director Phyllida Lloyd, producer Judy Craymer and ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus.

It was nice to see them together for the first time since 1986.  Although I have not seen Mamma Mia! musical, I bet the Mamma Mia! The Movie will be good.  It is set to premiere in the States on July 18.  Although I do not expect to see the foursome at the American debut, but I hope the movie will be as good as the musical.

This group is one of my all time favorite groups.  At one time they were number 2 in record sales to another famous group — The Beatles.  Their European Pop brand of music made music enjoyable during the 1970s and 1980s.  As I have stated in my posts of videos I have found on YouTube, they sure do not write songs like these anymore.  Their unique voices and melodies have been hard to re-produce today.  I was hoping that some time in the future they would do a full orchestra event in Stockholm to share again their music.  But, according to Breitbart, it does not appear it will ever happen.  But, you never know, it could happen privately.
