On 1st November 1984, the last of five concerts of the European concert tour of Chess took place at the Berwaldhallen concert hall in Stockholm, Sweden.
The tour had started in London on 27th October and went to Paris, Amsterdam and Hamburg.
The concerts featured Elaine Paige, Tommy Körberg, Murray Head, Barbara Dickson, with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Ambrosian Singers.
Benny played accordion and keyboards and Björn hid in the choir standing next to Karin Glenmark who, along with her brother Anders, was on backing vocals.
Towards the end of the concert Barbara Dickson, who plays Svetlana, becomes ill backstage. Unaware, Tommy Körberg begins the highy complex duet "Endgame" but when Barbara misses her cue, he looks round for her.
Backing singer, Karin Glenmark, who had sung the part on the demos and previously in concert stepped forward and rescues the concert -- it is one of the defining moments of her career.
