Agnetha sparks ABBA reunion rumours
ABBA star Agnetha Faltskog - the most reclusive former member of the group - has sparked rumours of an ABBA reunion after telling a Swedish magazine that she would consider reuniting with her former husband Bjorn Ulvaeus, 65, Benny Andersson, 64, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 65, for a series of special concerts.
"I could see us doing something together in the future,” Agnetha, now 60, told Sweden’s M magazine. “It is just a feeling I have that it would be fun to get together, talk a bit about the past and maybe perform together.
“We wouldn’t get together again for a tour like The Rolling Stones and other old bands. I think we would all consider a one-off reunion, maybe for a good cause.”
Since the group split in 1982, they have turned down all requests to get back together - including a reputed offer of £650million in 2000. In March 2010, though, Benny Andersson said a one-off performance was “not a bad idea” despite having ruled it out only two years earlier.
With Agnetha’s comments seemingly making a reunion more likely than ever, bookmaker William Hill is now accepting bets on ABBA performing at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in April, and at this summer’s Glastonbury festival. The odds of ABBA having a Number One hit this year have also been slashed from 20/1 to 5/1.
