The MagazineOur magazine (32 pages, many in colour, A5) will not only keep you up to date with all the latest news, but it will give even the most devoted fans new insights, thanks to exclusive interviews with the people that worked with ABBA back in the days, stories about records and memorabilia for both beginners and advanced collectors, a Q&A section and specials about different events in the careers of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Frida. This is also the place to look for competitions where you can win things that are autographed by all four members, get tickets to shows, get the latest Fan Club Shop catalogue and much more. We have our own photographers, access to a big archive of unpublished photos (every magazine includes an A4 poster) and, besides the stories by our own staff members, we are always welcoming entries from our readers. Every now and then, there is a special gift with the magazine, like the sought-after CDs that Polar made for us. We are proud to say that several of the people in the inner circle around ABBA have asked for a subscription and, of course, the ABBA members themselves get their own copies.
The magazine is published four times a year, very occasionally with extra newsletters in between. The magazine is published in English. A translation in French is available on request.
Magazine 137 is published on the 1st December
This issue contails a variety of wonderful articles, including reports on Benny's Opus Klassik Award, musical premieres and Carl Magnus Palm's Missouri lectures. We also have interviews with Olivia Newton-John in connection with the UNICEF gala 40 year ago, Getty Kaspers from Teach-in and Mia Segolsson from Polar/Universal.
As always, we have found fabulous pictures for you and, of course, there is so much more, including our regular features - memorabilia, old releases/record companies, posters, news and our competition in which you can win a vinyl copy of ABBA The Album that is signed by all four members - the list is almost endless.
