Default ABBA comes back!!!

According to finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat the legendary swedish group ABBA is going to perfrom live in the Eurovision song contest in Istanbul in may 2004. They are going to release a new greatest hits album to celebrate their international break in Eurovision song contest 30 years ago. It is unknown whether there will be some new material or not but most certainly there will be a live performance. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

ABBA broke up in the early 80's and its members Benny, Björn, Anni-Frid and Agnetha haven't worked as a group since.

Well if that's true, it might as well be the best piece of news I've heard this year. I would kill to see them perform again... Those are excellent voices. Thanks for the news. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Nice to read this, seems quite a few artists have jumped on this bandwagon, I read the Carpenter's have a CD coming out with new/previously unheard recordings. I would be glad to see them perform again, great voices. thanks for posting this.

OH DEAR GOD NO!!!!!!!!!!!!

ABBA got my respect by saying they would never reform and judging by other comebacks they should stick to their former decision.
50 year olds pretending its 1977 singing disco classics - please no!

Well it's not gonna happen:

Björn denies ABBA "reunion"

ABBA won't reunite according to Björn Ulvaeus. The real ABBA members won't have any involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest movie, just the ABBA muppets and the real Mick Jagger and Rick Mayal.
Also Björn & Benny are probably the only ones who will show up in London, although he did say that he didn't know if Agnetha & Frida would be there as well. Furthermore Prince Charles doesn't have any official buisiness on the 6th of April, so it seems highly unlikely that he will attend the ABBA event on that day.
We'll have to wait and see what actually happens on the 6th of April.

(Thanks to Robin Andersson and ABBA Mail)

It seemed pretty... weird. Well let's preserve the legend, then. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Agnetha is releasing a new album in English and she already released a single for it. Haven't heard it so I can't have an opinion yet.

By the way, didn't it seem like a HEAVY attempt to promote her single, and all? We wouldn't be talking about it if there were no reunion rumours.

Oh well.
