ABBA have sold around 370 million records around the world. Elvis and The Beatles are probably the only ones who surpass those figures. Every year 2-3 million albums are sold, which means that ABBA are still one of the world's best-selling groups. It all started on a June night in 1966, when 21-year-old Björn Ulvaeus is on tour with the Hootenanny Singers and 20-year-old Benny Andersson is touring with the Hep Stars.
