Faltskog Teases ABBA’s 50th Anniversary Reunion

(StraightNews.org) – Supergroup ABBA may be set for a comeback to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of their first major hit, Waterloo. Agnetha Faltskog, who sang with the band alongside Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Bjorn Ulvaeus, and Benny Andersson, hinted at a possible reunion during a recent interview with a British newspaper. The 73-year-old singer said, “You never know anything about ABBA and when we’re going to….” She quickly added, “Well, I won’t say anything about that. I’d rather be quiet.”

ABBA shot to fame when they represented their native Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. Musical pundits and commentators often describe it as the most iconic moment in the history of the Eurovision as four relatively unknown Swedes took to the stage in eye-catching glittery outfits and swept the scoreboard. The song, Waterloo, would become a worldwide hit, and ABBA would become one of the most successful groups of the last century.

Rumors of an ABBA comeback have persisted for some years, and their fans have waited patiently. However, devotees were in for a treat earlier this year as Agnetha Faltskog released her first single in ten years. A UK radio station played “Where Do We Go From Here” for the first time in August, and ABBA enthusiasts responded with glee as broadcaster Zoe Ball interviewed the Swedish star.

“Absolutely loved the new Agnetha song! And what a delightful interview. Tears in my eyes at 3.45am! Thanks Agnetha and Zoe Ball,” said one fan. Another wrote, “There literally isn’t a more classy, graceful, lovely, or beautiful woman than Agnetha Faltskog. Different league.”

In London, through the wonders of technology, fans can see a “digital” ABBA concert in a stadium built just for the purpose. ABBA Voyage boasts it has created the ultimate trip back in time – lighting and computer technology have brought avatars of 1970s ABBA to the stage. Overwhelmingly greeted with applause, critics say the show has “to be seen to be believed.”
