Thrilling, but not enough concert footage...
6 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a huge and devoted ABBA Fan for about 30 years, I was thrilled that the '79 ABBA concert was finally released on DVD! But due to time constrictions when the concert was filmed for television, there is a bunch of concert footage that wasn't included. For example, Agnetha's vocal and piano solo of "I'm Still Alive." It would have been absolutely THRILLING if they could've included that in the concert DVD. There are also other songs not included that I would've loved to have seen the Girls of ABBA sing live.

If you're an ABBA Fan like I am, the DVD is most definitely worth buying and watching over and over again. It is very heart pounding and almost impossible to control yourself from singing along with the Girls.

Just enjoy what little of the concert is on the DVD! I surely have! And with any luck, maybe another concert DVD will be released called "More ABBA in Concert"!!
