Career highlights

Björn Again have now performed over 3,000 concerts in over 60 countries worldwide to critical acclaim.

They have supported the Spice Girls, Shania Twain, Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Simply Red, The Beach Boys and many more.

Questions on Björn Again have now appeared in the board game "Trivial Pursuit".

They performed at Russell Crowe's wedding in April 2003.

The band first met Benny and Bjorn in Sweden in 1992.

Björn Again are regarded as one of the most successful Australian acts of all time.



Agnetha Falstart, Frida Longstokin, Benny Anderwear and Bjorn Volvo-us surfaced in 1989 after their helicopter collided with a giant glittery platform shoe, leaving them stranded on a deserted island. Not long afterwards they were rescued and taken to Melbourne, Australia, not knowing who they were or anything of their past, but with some beautiful melodies running around inside their heads.

Abba
The original fab four

Despite medical attention the amnesia would not go away, and it seemed the only way to find out more about themselves was to team up with Rutger Sonofagunn on bass and Ola Drumkitt on drums, and perform the catchy songs from their heads and preach good fashion sense to all.

For a while everyone mistook them for the Swedish supergroup ABBA - but they were not ABBA, they were Bjorn Again! The band first heard from ABBA in 1990 when they received a telegram from Bjorn himself while on their first tour of Sweden, reading "The best of luck. Anyone who looks like me ought to have a successful career!". And in February 1999 Benny stated live on London's Capital Radio: "Fans had better make the most out of Bjorn Again because that's the closest they are going to get to seeing ABBA. ABBA will never reform!"

Now in their 15th year and one of the most popular acts in the whole world, they are back on the road with their Home Swede Home tour, the ultimate homage to the original glitzy disco four, and calling in at Cambridge's Corn Exchange on December 1st. The best news for fans is, it will only cost a fraction of the billion dollar offer that ABBA recently turned down. Don't "Take a Chance" on anyone else!
