Eurovision Royalty Abba took to the stage last night and performed together.

“June 5th is exactly 50 years since Björn and Benny met for the first time in Linköping, Sweden.
The rest is history and we are all so grateful for this day.

Thank you for the music Björn and Benny and we all hope for more wonderful music many years to come!


That was the message on the official ABBA Facebook page and then late last night at a private party in Stockholm Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson asked Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad to join them on stage.

Then the magic happened. According to Expressen the group performed the song ‘The Way Old Friends Do (You and I)’ to a Swedish star-studded audience that included Among the other artists performing at the festival was Lena Philipsson , Pernilla Wahlgren , Lill-Babs , Peter Jöbac k, Helen Sjöholm and Tommy Körberg .

Newspaper Expressen spoke to Anni-Frid Lyngstad

“This evening was absolutely fantastic. Very much emotion. We have made a journey through our history, especially Benny and Bjorn. It has been very nostalgic”.

This is now the second time the 4some have been on stage together!

All good things come in threes as they say!
