ABBA Reunion in 2014? Oh Hell NO!

Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the band’s first hit “Waterloo”, which won the pop quartet the Eurovision song contest and catapulted them to fame.

abbaAbba subsequently became one of the world’s best-selling pop bands with a string of number one hits such as “Mamma Mia”, “Dancing Queen” and “Super Trouper.”

“Of course it’s something we’re thinking about,” 63-year-old Fältskog told the weekly Welt am Sonntag.

“There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them,” she said.

Abba formed in 1972 when Faltskog met guitarist and songwriter Bjorn Ulvaeus — whom she later married — and Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

Andersson and Lyngstad were also married for a while. Both couples divorced.

The group’s self-penned hit “Waterloo” won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton, England, in April 1974, and immediately became a global phenomenon.

With their iconic glam outfits and pioneering music videos, they scored an unprecedented string of worldwide number one hits, such as “Mamma Mia”,“Dancing Queen” and “Super Trouper”.

They became Sweden’s biggest-ever pop act and one of the most successful pop groups in history, selling more than 380 million records worldwide.

The band never formally broke up, but their last album “The Visitors” appeared in 1982.
