Abba stars reunite for new venture

Bjorn Ulvaeus (r) and partner Lena Kallersjo.

While they quietly disbanded in 1982, the popularity of their music has never waned, thanks to its usage in films like Muriel's Wedding, Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and of course the world-conquering stage show and film, Mamma Mia!

All four former members of the 1970s Swedish pop group Abba have reunited for the opening of a new business venture in the capital Stockholm.

Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (Frida) were together for the opening of the Abba Museum in Stockholm in 2013 but Agnetha was out of the country promoting her latest album.

Bjorn Ulvaeus, a member of Swedish disco group ABBA speaks to journalists during the opening of Mamma Mia!

Although all appearing on the night, they chose to walk the red carpet separately.

Everything happens on a magical evening in several acts filled with singing, dancing and daredevil stunts, Greek Gods, flirty waiters and perhaps a Zorba and Ouzpo or two.

"We are here to party", said co-composer Ulvaeus, the one on the guitar.

However, they did not sing or pose for photos together and rejected suggestions they would ever perform together again, with Andersson saying "I don't think so".

"No evening is like any other and no-one knows how it ends".

The iconic band, who rose to fame in the 1970s and won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with Waterloo, are reported to have sold more than 375 million records.

With the help of ABBA's songs we will create the unique history of each night there and then.
