For those interested, Bjorn Again played Mike's version of Arrival as they opened the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2019 on Friday. Did a double take there as I recognised the QE2 version!

That is interesting, and a bit strange, if they are an ABBA tribute band, why play the Mike Oldfield version? did they play it with live instruments? or just a playback to dance to?

They did a playback of the track rather than performing it themselves (which in fairness would be a bit complicated for Bjorn Again).

If Bjorn Again keeps imitating Mike, they'll soon have their own tribute band, perhaps called (Bjorn Again) Again  :D
