Sources of the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet claim that there are reasons to believe that ABBA plans a come-back at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. ABBA became world famous after their victory at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo.

Now it's clear”, the article in Sweden's biggest newspaper opens. According to Aftonbladet “ABBA will co-operate in the organisation of the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest”. It was already known that ABBA-member Agnetha Fältskog would probably give a performance in Istanbul. If their come-back means if they are also to perform together is still the question…

The spokesperson of Björn and Benny, Görel Hanser, could not comment on the story. “I am not involved with this”, was the answer when Aftonbladet asked to comment on the story. Meanwhile, Eurovision Song Contest supervisor Svante Stockselius could not comment on it too.

This year it's exactly 30 years ago that ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo for Sweden. The news about a possible come-back comes up on the day Sweden chooses its representative for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.
