Abba Regroup For Bjorn’s New Mamma Mia Venue

The four members of Abba, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Agnetha Fältskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus were together again on Wednesday for the opening of Bjorn’s new business venture.

Bjorn has opened a theatre-restaurant in Stockholm based on and named after Mamma Mia. Visitors to the venue get to role-play the Mamma Mia story, staff are dressed as Mamma Mia characters and the night also features a new adaptation of the story by Ulvaeus.

Ulvaeus said earlier that he had invited the three other members of Abba to the opening but did not know until the night if they would come. The four Abba members then mixed with the 130 specials guests and occasional fans who managed to score an invitation.

The last time all four members of Abba were photographed together was in London in 2008 for the premiere of the movie Mamma Mia. Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid (Frida) were together for the opening of the Abba Museum in Stockholm in 2013 but Agnetha was out of the country promoting her latest album.
