ABBA perform together for first time in 30 years

Stockholm, June 7 (IANS) Legendary Swedish pop group ABBA delighted longtime fans when they reunited to mark their 50th anniversary here.

The band — which comprised of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad — made a rare appearance on stage last weekend, performing together for the first time since 1986, reports mirror.co.uk.

The musicians were celebrating at a private party at the city’s Berns Salonger hotel and opted for a low-key function to ring in the milestone.

According to local newspaper the Expressen, the Dancing Queen stars were joined on stage by local celebrities and actors from the European country. The quartet joined together to sing “Me and I” from their 1980 album “Super Trouper”.

While there is no video footage of the show, two photographs have circulated of the band embracing each other on stage.

The last time they were all together was for the opening of Stockholm’s Mama Mia! The Party, which was held on January 20 this year but they didn’t perform on that occasion.
