ABBA The Museum and the Japanese spa and conference hotel Yasuragi have initiated a cooperation and will present a special exhibition of ABBA’s last tour in Japan. The exhibition is based on the book “ABBA The Backstage Stories” by Ingmarie Halling. It also displays costumes of ABBA’s own costume designer Owe Sandström. At the exhibition even brand new photos by award-winning Mattias Edwall will be displayed for the first time.
Budokan, Tokyo: ABBA’s last concert
ABBA performed their final tour in Japan in 1980 and gave their last concert before a paying audience in Budokan in Tokyo. No one knew then that a few years later the world-famous pop group would take a break – to never perform together again.
Since it opened in 1997 the Yasuragi Hotel has had as one of its goals to highlight Japanese culture and to show the connection between the Japanese and Swedish. In its gallery the hotel often shows exhibits that have a connection to Japan.
Until April 15, 2016
The exhibition will open on October 6, 2015, when the exhibition will be inaugurated by the Ambassador of Japan H.E. Mr. Seiji Morimoto. The exhibition will be on show at Yasuragi in Saltsjö-Boo near Stockholm until April 15, 2016. Free entrance. Map here.
