Members of a Swedish quartet ABBA are going to reunite for the implementation of a new digital project. Faltskog Agnetha, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad made this statement on October 26, 2016.
“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,” Fuller said in a statement.
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.”
Full details of their new project will be announced in 2017.

According to the band members, the purpose of the reunion will be the implementation of the original project in the field of show business, which “will enable a new generation of fans to see, hear and feel this group ABBA they never imagined it.” The musicians did not disclose details, however, it is possible that we are talking about a virtual 3D-show, which is preparing by the ex-Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller.
ABBA had broken up in 1982, but in June 2016 they performed together once again. They gave a small concert in Stockholm to mark the 50th anniversary of the friendship between Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. Prior to that, the members of the group categorically rejected the reunification, even for one billion dollars. Before that the participants of the quartet appeared together in public for the last time in 2008 at the premiere of the musical ‘Mamma Mia!’.
