Nearly four decades after disbanding, Swedish pop group ABBA are set to make a “sensational comeback” despite making previous vows to never reform.
In the time span of over 50 years, the group managed to sell over 400 million albums, with many memorable tunes that we all know and love to this day such as Dancing Queen, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), Mamma Mia and The Winner Takes It All.
Winning Eurovision in 1974 with the song Waterloo, the group experienced phenomenal success throughout the 70s and early 80s before parting ways in 1982.
Since then, fans just accepted the fact that their favourite pop group would never reunite but now these same eager fans are currently awaiting a fresh collaboration, which is expected later today.
The group – Anni-Frid Lyngstad (75), Agnetha Faltskog (71), Bjorn Ulvaeus (76) and Benny Andersson (74) – is expected to make a “historic announcement” at 5:45pm Irish time.
Last week, the group made an announcement on Twitter that read, “Thank you for waiting, the journey is about to begin.”
The group is expected to release their newest songs since the 1980s, as well as the launch of a new show where they will perform as hologram “Abbatars”.
