    Facts & trivia

    • Audience: 6,000 (sold out)
    • The Norwegian royal couple was in the audience. To honour them ABBA did an a capella performance of the songVi har ei tulle med öyne blå which the Norwegian Crownprincess Sonja had recorded in 1976. Apparently ABBA only sang the first verse:
      Vi har ei tulle med øyne blå, (We have a little baby girl with blue eyes)
      med silkehår og med ører små, (with silky hair and with tiny ears)
      og midt i fjeset en liten nese (and in the middle of the face a little nose)
      så stor som så. (as big as this.)
