ABBA told us about the New Songs far too early. it was a huge error of judgement. It was all tied into the 'ABBAtars'
Tour starting and being a success. However, they cannot get the 'ABBAtars' working properly, so we now end up with
delay after delay. We cannot hear the New Songs and the 2 Hour TV Special is also delayed.
By the time ABBA finally give us the New Songs - if ever - they will be very old to ABBA, as they recorded them in June
2017. Which means that that the recordings are already 18 Months old - with even more delays to add to that.
I've never known ABBA to be so confused and chaotic about their plans and intentions. It makes it look like they no longer
know what they are doing. That they are very disorganised.
I was wondering - last night - if they might 'Premier' one of the New Songs at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest - using
the 'ABBAtars' to mime to it. The 'ABBAtars' need not even be on stage. They could be seen in a Video, 'singing' the Song.
ABBA may decide to do that, if they realise that the 'ABBAtars' Tour is going to be delayed for several more Months...
I was hoping that ABBA would use the delays to record a New Album, but that may be far too optimistic.
By announcing the New Songs far too soon, and then delaying them, ABBA have made a great risk of alienating a lot
of their Fans. For a start, I've read many Fan Posts on YouTube, where they say that they think that the 'ABBAtars'
idea is stupid. That they have no intentions of paying 'good money' to see Holograms, when the 4 Members of ABBA
are still alive. They'd rather see the 'Real' ABBA on Tour. If they can't have that, then they certainly won't be going
to see the 'ABBAtars'.
Many ABBA Fans want ABBA to give up the 'ABBAtars' Tour completely, and to just record a New Album. They'd rather
have that, than endless delays of a 'Project' that is of Zero interest to them...The 'ABBAtars' could be used in Promo
Videos, for New Songs, but the Tour idea is a huge mistake.
When I mentioned the negative YouTube Posts in an Email, I had some Fans practically accusing me of lying. They said that
they had not seen any anti-'ABBAtars' Posts, and they wanted to know where I'd seen them. This is because those Fans see
the 'ABBAtars' as a 'fantastic' idea, and they cannot imagine any Fans thinking they are a 'bad' idea...
Some Fans think that I try to cause trouble for ABBA. This is not so. I love ABBA and I never stop thanking them for making
my life better, with their Music. I just do not want the 'ABBAtars' 'Project' to be a huge disaster and flop, with the entire World's
Media watching - and commenting on how ABBA 'Got it terribly wrong'. I do not want ABBA to have such humiliation...
