Reward for missing ABBA “Girl with the Golden Hair” wig

Prue Acton.

To celebrate the opening of ABBAWhirl in the Inner West, Sydney, in January 2010, the promoter of this retro interactive ABBA exhibition has posted a reward* to find a missing Girl With The Golden Hair wig.

The wig, worn by Annifrid Lyngstad during the band’s tour 1977 tour of Australia, was nabbed by Frida’s son Hans and Benny’s son Peter when it flew off during one of the Australian concerts. They then used it as a disguise when they fled the concert and took a hire car and credit card to Double Bay and went on a shopping spree.


It has been missing ever since, though there are rumours it was shared among high-flying fashionistas and artists, sighted variously on Prue Acton, (the late) Brett Whiteley, and Crumpet the dog, who frolics in Camperdown Park during the leash-free period after 5pm weekdays.

If found, this wig will become part of ABBAWhirl’s memorabilia collection. Contact ABBAWhirl if you have any information regarding this precious artefact.

*The reward will consist of unlimited free entry to ABBAWhirl and the opportunity to spend a week during summer as an ABBAWhirl volunteer!
