Hit wins the Björn Ulvaeus billion empire
The successes of Björn Ulvaeus billion empire continue.
In June, his company, Pop House, Cirkus bought at Djurgården - now plans to buy this Abba member to build a house in London where "Mamma Mia the party" will be held.
"Five minutes from Waterloo station, we will build a house that will open sometime 2019. It's a great thing," says Björn Ulvaeus.
The year was 1972 when Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad started giving out their music. Two years later, the group formed the name ABBA, which became one of the world's most famous bands.
And the success of ABBA ended not only because the band was playing the tournament on the shelf - on the contrary. The musical "Mamma Mia" based on the group's songs has become a world success. Also the movie with the same name.
Soon, the second "Mamma Mia" film - a project Björn Ulvaeus will be involved in.
"I'm very involved when it comes to casting. Benny has been in the studio recently, and myself I will go to London and record. It's a kidding project, says Björn Ulvaeus.
Björn Ulvaeus involved in more "Mamma Mia" projects.
In addition to the fact that Björn Ulvaeus owns properties for almost SEK 20 million and had an acquisition income of 2.4 million in 2015, there are billions in Ulvaeus companies.
He owns 70 percent of Kopparnäset AB, which in turn has 24 companies - one of them is MM! The Party AB. And "Mamma Mia" has become a huge brand, where Björn Ulvaeus gets his delicious piece of succé cake worth a million.
"I can not say how much, but some of course comes," says Ulvaeus, and continues:
"It's exciting how the brand" Mamma Mia "has grown - with both the stage music and the movies. And now, "Mamma Mia! The Party" that goes for sold out houses in Stockholm, and I'm getting to London, says Björn Ulvaeus.
He tells us that there is currently a planning process in the South Bank of London about Mamma Mia! The Party. "
"We will build a house five minutes from Waterloo station where" Mamma Mia! The Party "opens sometime 2019. And it works that's how it works everywhere I can imagine - it's a great thing, says Björn Ulvaeus.
Ulvaeus about Circus: "Will be fun to put your teeth on"

"I just do the way I think it's great fun and this with Circus fits so well into Pop House, which also owns the ABBA Museum. So I'm looking forward to working with Cirkus content with other actors and that Pop House and I produce their own stuff. It will be a joke to put your teeth in it, "concludes Björn Ulvaeus.
