Is Abba Museum worth visiting?

I'd rather visit the Wasa museum which is more or less next doors

A museum about Swedish crackers? You had me excited for a minute.

The ABBA Museum is appropriately superficial, with a good section on their folkie roots in various incarnations. The display on their low-budget videos was interesting - i.e., the f/x tricks used by director Lasse Hallstrom. (Spoiler: The opening sunset on the Fernando video is just a picture from a magazine.)

Yep, the Vasa ship is spelled with a V grinning smiley

I was pleasantly surprised visiting the museum a couple of weeks back. I would recommend a visit...

Sure thang Kev!

Best meatballs (with cowberry jam and mashed potatoes) you'll find at the Ardbeg EMBASSY (just learned they changed the name from Ardbeg Room) in Gamla Stan (Old Town) but you can get a decent one at the sidewalk cafés in Strandvägen or the two restaurants next to the Djurgårdsbron (Djurgården Bridge).

The best Rock club by far is Pub Anchor in Sveavägen. I'm here at least once a week, karaoke on tuesdays and sundays as well as live bands during fridays and saturdays. There is also Harry B James in Kungsträdgården close to the Royal Castle. The Stones cover band Rocks Off, from Gothenburg, usually plays here.

As for the Volvos I haven't got a clue mate, sorryconfused smiley

I can see Volvo cars to rent: [www.rentalcars.com]

But I don't know between which dates you want to rent, neither where you want to pick up your Volvo.
And and usual, you aren't guaranteed a specific brand, you can get a similiar one. At least at websites of this type.

I decided to fly in on Friday afternoon, short flight from Helsinki, and stay the night in downtown (Hotel Adlon, conveniently located right next to the Central Railway Station). On Saturday I'll move to Quality Hotel Friends.

Thanks for your tips, MadMax, I might give Pub Anchor a shot on Friday!

By the way...how long it is still bright at the end of July? I mean the sunset seems to be pretty late? Am I wrong?

The sunset is indeed quite late (9:16 PM on the 31st) but the show will take place at a roofed stadium, so it will be dark inside the venue anyway.

To no one's great surprise I believe Stockholm will be the end.

I will have so many mixed emotions attending but I would not want to be anywhere else.
