I'd hate the sound

of 30,000 people booing.

Excuse me,

is this the right jam for King's Cross?

- No, it's back that way.

- Thanks.

I think the travelling

is very very hard.

Come on!

One day when I woke up

during our European tour...

...I started to think "Where am I?

In which city?" And it's terrible.

I think that it's a bit

of an asocial life on tour.

You just eat, sleep, go on stage,

and nothing more.

And it kills creativity

in a way that I don't like.

It's boring to travel, but it's

fantastic to be on stage. I love that.

- Move!

- The biggest pop group ever...

The groups arrival in Australia has been

accompanied by a blaze of publicity.

According to the promoters

They are bigger than The Beatles.

And with an entourage of 105 people-

- they are almost twice as big

as The Rolling Stones concert.

While they are here theyll perform

eleven concerts in ten days-

- to a nest, mated 140000 people.

ABBA are obviously very big business-

- and the organizers

are treating them like royalty.

Theyve even arranged a civic reception

for them in Melbourne.

Do you take drugs or alcohol,

or anything like that?

- No drugs.

- You're clean?

No, not clean,

but we don't take any drugs.

The four of you admit

that you are now millionaires.

Are you worried that you make money

faster than you can spend it?

No. It's a lot of money coming in,

but there's a lot of tax to pay-

- if you're a Swedish citizen,

which is fair. But still, it's...

It's a matter of hard work,

and the money isn't that important.

Really, it's more a matter of pleasing

yourselves in what you're doing.

We can't do anything else

in the future-

- than trying to keep ourselves happy

in our work.

I' d like to direct a couple

of questions to Agnetha if I may...
