Today, this ABBA News has been put on The Official UK Chart Company's Site. (The OCC Site).
Jack White is relatively 'new' there. With this 'Exhibition', the ABBA 'Hologram'(?) Show, due in
2018, and July 2018's 'Mamma Mia - Here I Go Again' Film, it is obvious that several Countries
are going to have yet another big 'ABBA Revival' during the next 18 Months - and beyond.
With the UK - as always - being one of the most enthusiastic. 'ABBA Gold' has not been
in the UK Top 100 for 2 Weeks, but in today's Mid Week Chart, it is back in at No.44 - due
mainly to UK Sales of the Gold coloured double Vinyl Album. That is for UK Sales from Friday
to Sunday - inclusive.....('ABBA Gold' had a Global & European iTunes 'Revival' in June. It
reached No.11 in the World's iTunes Albums and No.7 in Europe's iTunes Albums).
An ABBA exhibition called Super Troupers is coming to London later this year
"We are so excited that the exhibition is just a few short steps away from Waterloo.”
By Jack White
Get your platform boots at the ready! A new ABBA exhibition is coming to London later this year.
Taking place at the Southbank Centre from December 14, 2017 to April 29, 2018, Super Troupers will walk fans through various eras of ABBA's career, recreating iconic places in the Swedish band's very famous history.
Each exhibit space will feature actual artefacts and momentos used by ABBA's Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida, many of which are borrowed from the ABBA museum in Stockholm. The night that they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 will be recreated, as will their Brighton Grand hotel suite that they stayed in.
A 70s disco and ABBA's recording studio will act as other areas in the exhibition to tell the band's story, while unseen sketches, iconic costumes and instruments will bring fans closer to ABBA than ever before.

“We recorded Mamma Mia in 1975. What happened that year in the UK and in the world? One thing is for certain – it seems unbelievably long ago!”
This news follows an announcement made last year that a virtual reality "digital experience" featuring the band will debut this year. Whether or not the two will tie-in together is currently unknown.
Later this summer, brand new vinyl reissues of solo ABBA albums will be released, all with brand new coloured discs for a limited period.

NOTE - ABBA had 25 UK Top 40 Singles, not 26. The OCC counts 'Dancing Queen' twice, as it thinks that
it was a Remix, that reached No.16, in 1992. In fact, it was just the 1976 version again. So, you should
only count it as 1 UK Top 40 Hit - not 2. (The OCC does accept, that when 'Waterloo' reached No.20, in
2004, it was the same as the 1974 original, so they only count 'Waterloo' as 1 ABBA UK Top 40 Hit).
