ABBA only bloody reunite (for food)

By | Published on Thursday 21 January 2016


Hey everybody, time for an ABBA reunion. So that’s exciting, right?

But no, it’s not that Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad all tuned into ITV’s celebrities-murder-ABBA-songs special just before Christmas and were so outraged they thought, “Fuck it, we gotta start performing these fucking songs again to stop these fuckers from fucking them all up in fucking prime time”.

I mean, they probably did think all that (though possibly in Swedish), but then they saw the royalty cheques the ITV atrocity generated, and they all calmed down a little.

Anyway, it was a cafe that finally brought the fab four of pop back together again in public, for the first time since the ‘Mamma Mia’ film premiere eight years ago. All four former members showed up for the opening of a new restaurant in Stockholm called ‘Mamma Mia! The Party’.

Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid then stood in a row and posed for photos. It was quite the event. I wonder if there was soup.
