12/11/14-No More ABBA

todayDecember 11, 2014

Background

ABBAThe on-again-off-again rumor mill that is an ABBA reunion has been marked permanently off, at least as far as Bjorn Ulvaeus is concerned. Ulvaeus talked recently with Billboard where the ABBA reunion question was breached. ‘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.
‘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.’
A book of the band’s history, ABBA: The Official Photo Book, was recently released in the U.S. with over 600 photos from throughout their career.
ABBA were international superstars during the 70’s and early-80’s but only managed four top ten hits in the U.S. and never made the top ten with any of their albums. In the U.K., they had twenty top ten hits, including nine that made it to number one, and nine top ten albums. The Broadway smash “Mama Mia” finally made them an American institution.
