SWEDEN – Pop legendary group ABBA announced that they have reunited and are returning to the stage as avatars – ABBA-tars – for the first time in 39 years
Their new album ABBA voyage hits record stores in November, and their first concert will be in London at their own ABBA arena now being built.
A simulcast event in London and Stockholm where they have the ABBA museum was watched by millions around the world.
The Swedish group that was formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad became a household name with many of their songs turning into singalong anthems.
At first it was just two songs, and then we said, ‘Well, maybe we should do a few others,'” said Benny Andersson.
They have recorded 10 songs, and two, including “I Still Have Faith In You” – a piano ballad about the bond the four band members still share, premiered at the launch.
