Swedish pop legends ABBA, composed of Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, have extended heartfelt thanks to their fans for their unwavering support as the group marks the 50th anniversary of their Eurovision Song Contest victory.

The band’s iconic win with “Waterloo” in Brighton in April 1974 catapulted them to fame, and they reflected on the profound impact their music has had on multiple generations over the past five decades.

In a message of gratitude, ABBA expressed, “It’s slightly dizzying and deeply humbling to think that millions of you who saw us for the first time in the Eurovision final 1974 have passed our music on not only to one generation but to several. We see evidence of that every time one of us visits Abba Voyage in London, and it’s because of this we can celebrate the 50th anniversary of that event in the knowledge that our songs still resonate around the world.”

The group, known for hits like “SOS,” admitted to finding it challenging to grasp the passage of 50 years since their Eurovision triumph. They acknowledged that their dreams at the time have been exceeded, leading them to become one of the most beloved groups in music history.

Reflecting on their journey, ABBA shared, “So what were our dreams during those suspenseful moments or in the chaos in the aftermath of the victory we had secured with the smallest margin in Eurovision history? Four different dreams, no doubt, but whatever they were, however grand, reality has surpassed them, that’s for sure.”

The band expressed their gratitude to fans who have been with them from the start, spanning over half a century. They recognized the enduring power of music to resonate throughout people’s lives and how their songs have become cherished constants for many.

The statement concluded with a heartfelt acknowledgment of the love and support from their fans throughout the years. ABBA expressed deep gratitude for their long and successful career, emphasizing the significance of their fans’ loyalty and support.
