Egypt releases its playlist — catch the vibe: Following news that Michael Bolton is coming to Egypt in October, we are not kidding when we say that there is word that ABBA is also making their way here. Well, at least two of the four original members, who are set to perform on 15 September at Stella Di Mare Ain Sokhna. The advertisement by Travel Choice Egypt says it all: “Do you love music? Do you remember Mama Mia & Voulez Vous? Sure [sic] your answer is yes. Even if… [you’ve] never heard these songs we’ll… make you enjoy it,” the flyer reads. Unconfirmed to be performing in Egypt this summer as of yet: Bonnie Tyler, 4 Non Blondes and Natalie Imbruglia.
