The private German TV channel Kabel 1 will screen a special show dedicated to the Swedish pop group ABBA, simply called ABBA – die Show, on Wednesday. The show will start at 20:15 CET.
The content of the show is described like this: How was ABBA formed? How did the four Swedish people conquer the whole world? What are they doing now? 'ABBA – die Show' will answer all these questions, starting with the fabled begin of the band and ending with the current ABBA cult.
Comedian Ingolf Lück will host the show. The whole guest list isn't published yet, but it is already known that comedian Wigald Boning and moderator Sonja Kraus will be there.
At 22:30 CET, Kabel 1 will broadcast another ABBA special: Formel 1 – ABBA forever. Formel 1 was a famous German music show in the 80s and Peter Illmann, Stefanie Tücking and Kai Böcking will show the ABBA highlights. Last but not least, at 22:50 CET ABBA – the movie will be screened. The film was produced in 1977 by Lasse Hallström and shows an ABBA tour through Australia and New Zealand. 20 ABBA songs are presented in this movie.
In 1974, ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest for Sweden with their song Waterloo. Last Saturday, this song was voted the best song ever in the contest.
