The place is Brighton, England. The location is The Dome. The date is 6th April 1974 and on stage is a group known as ABBA. When the four Swedes won the Eurovision Song Contest with "Waterloo", it marks the starting point for their international career.
ABBA's stage costumes are glittery and very unusual for this particular context, perhaps the most famous of the group's many colourful outfits. Four happy artists rush back on stage for a second performance of Waterloo", the song that will become their ticket to the international charts.
Back in Sweden, ABBA had already won a landslide victory in the selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. There was no doubt that ABBA's rock song and their glam-rock costumes were something of a revolution in the well-mannered contest.
Bjorn had the idea that no-one else would have a song like they had, or wear stage costumes that they wore. So even if they would finish 9th the audience would remember them afterwards, and it could be the start of an international career.
"Waterloo" was a major hit all over the world, but also meant that ABBA could strengthen their position as Sweden's most popular artists.
