# Yup, a followspot
"The Super Trouper is the trademark for a special type of spotlight (followspot) for lighting venues such as concert venues and stadiums. This spotlight is designed to cast a bright ray of light onto the stage. It is also designed to follow the performer wherever he/she goes on the stage."

And the Glasgow mention was a personal reference to Björn and Agnetha's crumbling relationship.

# Shame on me!
I've been wrong about Abba all these years! And now I'm wrong on the internet!

I genuinely thought it was super trooper since forever.

# I've handled them (and other follow spots) numerous times.
Used a RoboSpot last weekend for the first time doing the follow spot for Tom Jones (not exactly difficult as he doesn't move around the stage much these days...).
