Folkpark Tour 75 is the name of the third tour carried out by the Swedish group ABBA .

Preparations

Rehearsals for the tour will begin on June 1 at the Jarla Theater in Stockholm .

El Tour

The tour was similar to the Folkpark Tour 73 , with the same mechanics in different parks, only this time it was less extensive, but the group was able to present more than 15 songs in one place, promoting their new album ABBA .

Swedish television proposed to the group to make a documentary but the proposal was streaked.

Commercial performance

In addition, the tour was one of the most successful of the group, selling all the seats, although it was perhaps because all the concerts were in Sweden . The tour was only made to replace the 1974 one, which was canceled due to the group's victory in Eurovision .
