ABBA to reunite officially for the first time in 30 years
The four original members of legendary pop act ABBA are to reunite for a new performance for the first time in more than 30 years.
While the Swedish pop foursome appeared together in June at a party, the new “entertainment experience” marks the first time in over three decades that they will perform together.
The project will include virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad split up in 1982 after performing together for more than ten years.
Simon Fuller, music manager famous for working with the Spice Girls, is spearheading the project.
He said in a statement: “We are exploring a new technological world that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn’t have previously imagined.”
Lyngstad said the band are always asked if they are going to reunite: “I hope this new Abba creation will excite them as much as it excites me.”
Andersson added: “We’re inspired by the limitless possibilities of what the future holds and are loving being a part of creating something new and dramatic here. A time machine that captures the essence of who we were and are.”
