“I could imagine the looks on our fans' faces when they see how we've aged.” With that, fiftyseven-year-old Björn Ulvaeus puts an end to speculations about an ABBA reunion.
An American music promoter had offered the incredible amount of
one billion dollars for a comeback of Sweden's legendary pop act, who
started their impressive career by winning the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest
with their song 'Waterloo' and who afterwards enjoyed worldwide sucess for over a decade.
“We had to seriously think about it”, Mr Ulvaeus says to British newspaper the
Guardian, “because one could build hospitals with that much money.” But the band decided to reject the tempting offer. Mr Ulvaeus' explanation: “We don't
want to go trough the stress of disappointing people evening after evening.
I wouldn't do this for all the money in the world.”
