Abba undertook their biggest tour between September 13 and November 15 1979, with a schedule of 41 concerts in North America and Europe. Abba performed a total of 25 songs without an interval. The tour involved 50 people, 40-50 tons of equipment, three articulated lorries for the equipment and two buses for the musicians and technicians. To make travelling easier in North America, the group hired a Lear jet.
One of the big surprises of the tour was "I'm Still Alive", a song written and performed by Agnetha on the piano. Unusually this song has never been recorded. It has only ever been performed live, during this tour and the Japan tour from March 12-27 1980. Agnetha had put her solo career on hold after 1975, to concentrate on performing for Abba. She shows here that she has lost none of her composing abilities.
This performance is from the Pavillon de Paris concert on October 23. This was Abba's first concert in France and they were an enormous success, with the 7000 strong audience singing along to every one of the group's hits. Bjorn spoke to the audience in French. Salut magazine wrote "Abba have just triumphed in France. Everything was meticulously planned, and there wasn't a single mistake during this unforgettable evening. Everyone was standing on their seats, shouting and clapping." Lyrics:
I was a loser then but I'm a winner now,
I'd do it all again 'cause now I know how,
How everything in life comes down to this at last,
Survivin' and livin' determined not to give in,
And I'm still alive,
My life is rollin' on gently from day to day,
Memories will fade away,
Yes, I'm still alive
The agony is gone, and my mind is slowly wakin'
And my heart has ceased its achin',
I'm still alive,
I took so many blows, I cried a sea of tears
And only heaven knows, how I could stand the fears
I think of all the nights I lay alone and scared,
All shattered, and cryin' and thinkin' I was dyin'
But I'm still alive,
My life is rollin' on gently from day to day,
Memories will fade away,
Yes, I'm still alive
The agony is gone and my mind is slowly wakin',
And my heart has ceased its achin',
I'm still alive,
I'm still alive,
My life is rollin' on gently from day to day,
Memories will fade away,
Yes, I'm still alive
The agony is gone and my mind is slowly wakin',
And my heart has ceased its achin',
I'm still alive,
I'm still alive,
I'm still alive.
