To the final concert ABBA came in the "Arrival" style with helicopter. The atmosphere this day was very special as it was Frida's birthday - she received flowers. To celebrate the final show ABBA decided to have a party at the hotel but they waited patiently until the small hours for their crew that was packing all stage gear before the party started. ABBA gave everyone who was involved in the work with the show a silver medallion each. It bore inscription "ABBA" on one side and "Thank you" on the other, accompanied by the actual name of the recipient.

The next day it was ABBA's turn to receive gifts. The group received a silver tray from two Irish fans who had collected money for months from ABBA fans all over Ireland to buy the tray.
