Agnetha Faltskog, the once famously reclusive member of the Swedish supergroup, ABBA, has sent tongues wagging with rumours ABBA could be reuniting after her recent interview for a Swedish magazine. Faltskog has been quoted saying “I just feel it would be fun to meet, chat about the old days and perhaps perform.”
Speculation as to where their reunion will resurface is anyone’s guess and punters are enjoying the heightened speculations.
Bookmaker William Hill has drastically slashed their odds of a one-off London reunion from 100-1 to 20-1 following Agnetha’s comments. Bookmakers are also offering 66-1 for the reunion to be this year’s Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Fans on Internet discussion boards are suggesting Stockholm while Glastonbury residents are putting educated hearsay’s behind their speculations for a reunion during this year’s festival in Glastonbury (Hill has announced odds of 30-1 for Glastonbury).
ABBA was formed in Stockholm in 1972 and after winning Eurovision in 1974 they quickly became one of the most commercially successful bands out of Sweden until they split in 1982.
They were the first pop group from a non-English speaking country to have savoured consistent success on the charts of English-speaking countries. In their ten years they sold over 375 million records worldwide.
Despite the breakup of the band, their music has remained popular. ABBA songs were featured in several movies over the last few years, such as Mamma Mia!, Muriel�s Wedding, and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Fans may speculate when and where the revival of the famous pop band will occur but we will need to wait until we see all four band members making a public announcement together.
