In an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, former ABBA member Agnetha Fältskog said that the popular Swedish quartet might reunite in 2014.
Next year marks the 40th anniversary since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton, England, with their hit ‘Waterloo’. The Swedish band was formed in 1972, with former couples Agnetha Fältskog & Björn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad & Benny Andersson.
“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,” Agnetha said in the interview.
Since 1982 Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad pursued successful solo careers. Their former band members and ex-husbands Ulvaeus and Andersson reworked 24 ABBA songs into the musical Mamma Mia which was also made into a movie with the same name.
Back in 2008, the four band members reunited in Sweden for the premiere of the ‘Mamma Mia’ movie.
In her interview with Welt am Sonntag, Fältskog said that time for a reunion was running out. “We’re all getting older. I can’t imagine going onto the stage on walking sticks.”
When asked whether a reunion would take place or not, Fältskog said she does not want to spend too much energy on thinking about it “Don’t just think about it, just do it.”
