    ABBA, The Moody Blues, The Who, David Bowie and ELO. The rest can go screw themselves.

    40 years ago today...

    When Abba chose to launch their North American tour in ... Edmonton

    In 1979, Swedish pop supergroup Abba embarked on their first North American concert tour, and their choice of city for the launch was apparently not a random one.

    It was carefully chosen — and it was Edmonton.

    They arrived to great attention from local and international press, and as CBC reporter Christopher Walmsley described it "you could tell this was going to be interesting right from the start."

    As Walmsley explained, the Sept. 13, 1979 concert was the group's first in over two years, and they needed a venue where they could "shake the bugs out of their show before hitting the big U.S. market."

    "And there stands the reason why Abba chose Edmonton to launch their first-ever assault on the North American concert tour," Walmsley said.

    "Edmonton audiences are forgiving and appreciative," he continued, and they provided the "morale boost" the group needed.
