The iconic outfit reunites in Sweden for the opening of a Mamma Mia-themed restaurant.
The four members of ABBA — Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Agnetha Fältskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus have reunited taking their first photo together since 1982.
The famous artists came together to celebrate a Mamma Mia-themed theatre restaurant in Sweden posting the photo on the band’s Facebook page.
Bjorn Ulvaeus owns the Mamma Mia restaurant at Nikos Greek tavern in Tyrol, which promises a Greek-themed experience, inspired by the musical.
The eatery is across the road from the ABBA Museum in Stockholm.
The website states “Mediterranean buffet is placed on your table. Glasses are being raised across the room. Everything happens on a magical evening in several acts filled with singing and dancing, daredevil stunts, Greek Gods, flirty waiters, and perhaps a Zorba and an Ouzo or two. The rest is up to you. Because no evening is like any other. And no one knows how it ends. It all depends on where ABBA’s songs take us! But one thing’s for sure: you can count on a Summer night city. The temperature at Nikos Taverna is always set on Greek high summer, regardless of season. Ready to make history? Opa!!”
Despite the rumours about a possible reunion this recent photo sparked, all members have remained adamant it will never happen.
“We took a break in ‘82, and it was meant to be a break. It’s still a break and will remain so. You’ll never see us onstage again,” Ulvaeus told Billboard last year.
“We don’t need the money, for one thing. Usually the reason bands have reunions is that one of them is destitute and the others want to help. Fortunately that has not happened to us.”
