Plots

An incompetent radio DJ tries to get an interview with the Swedish pop group during their famous week-long 1977 tour of Australia. - Matt Patay

Movie detailing ABBA's mega-successful tour of Australia during mid-1977. While it mostly contains back-stage footage and as well as ABBA's famous songs such as "Dancing Queen", "Tiger", "Name Of The Game" and "Eagle" among others sung filmed during their concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, it has the sub-plot of young country and western radio disc-jockey, Ashley, whose boss orders him to have a deep interview with ABBA and the problems he has trying to reach them as he forgets his press pass and ABBA's main bodyguard, (Tom Oliver) is determined to stop him... - Lee Horton

This movie about the other "Fab Four" (of Sweden), is virtually devoid of any plot, except that the "hero" is seeking to get an interview with Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Frida (a.k.a "ABBA") during their famous Australian tour. - Dave Hardenbrook
