Mama Mia: ABBA Reuniting After 30 Years For A 'Groundbreaking Venture'

ABBA are planning to "reunite" formally for first time since their split over 30 years ago. The Swedish pop group, whose hits include Dancing Queen and Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, are set to work on a project with music mogul Simon Fuller on a "groundbreaking venture that will utilise the very latest in digital and virtual reality technology.

The foursome – made up of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – are keen to "maintain the authenticity and integrity of the band's original vision".

The project will aim to take the Abba experience to a new generation of fans and will enable them to see, hear and feel the band "in a way previously unimagined".

Andersson said: "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."

Lyngstad said fans around the world always ask about a reunion, and added: "So I hope this new Abba creation will excite them as much as it excites me".

Fuller – who rose to fame managing the Spice Girls – said: "The creativity and ideas flowing from the members of Abba over the past few months have filled me with great excitement. "We are exploring a new technological world, with virtual reality and artificial intelligence at the forefront, that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn't have previously imagined."

The foursome parted ways in 1982 after a successful 10-year stint. They were last pictured together in January for the opening of Stockholm’s ABBA-inspired dining experience, Mamma Mia! The Party.
