Dave Grohl is really excited about the ABBA meeting
Dave Grohl is among the many fans excited to reunite iconic pop group ABBA after their disbandment almost 40 years ago.
When asked what he thought of their new singles – “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” – Grohl said BBC News, “Oh my god, I’m a huge ABBA fan. When I saw that they were coming back and had a record, I turned that link to 100 people I knew, and then I listened to the new song and cried like a baby. I cried like a baby. Oh man!
When asked why he was so moved, Grohl replied, “It almost looked like time hadn’t passed. Plus, it was such a beautiful, romantic, melancholy and bittersweet retrospective. Uh, that’s amazing. Abba can’t do anything wrong.
At the opportunity to play the drums for ABBA, Grohl said enthusiastically, “Listen, I’m going to get up and play the drums when I open an envelope. Show me a battery and I’ll sit on it. So yes, I would play with ABBA.
As previously reported, ABBA announced the November 5 release of Trip, a new album with ten new songs. Also in store for fans is a very unique concert dubbed ABBA Voyages. Through Rolling stone, “ABBA will also be giving a digital concert on May 27, 2022 – which they first announced in 2016. Produced through Industry Light & Magic by George Lucas, ‘Abba Voyage’ will take place in the arena from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London General tickets are available September 7th.
ABBA said in a statement on the historic news: “It’s been a while since we’ve made music together. Almost 40 years, in fact. We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we have decided it is time to end it. They say it’s reckless to wait 40+ years between albums, so we recorded a sequel to “The Visitors”. We just call it “Voyage” and we are truly navigating uncharted waters. “
