When ABBA traveled to Japan for their last tour in March 1980 their current hit was Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! at number 2 in the charts. It had entered the charts in late November 1979 and had been number 1 for several weeks. The song would stay in the charts until May 1980. Both singles before Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! had been number 1 hits in 1979: Chiquitita and I Have A Dream.
ABBA arrived in Tokyo after a 22 hour flight and hundreds of fans were waiting for them. ABBA posed for pictures and talked for a while to journalist John Tobler who would publish his book ABBA For The Record later that year.
