Have you missed them? Now it’s time to sing and dance together again! The legendary 4-member pop band of ABBA, which wrote history during the 70s and 80s and continues to be one of the most successful musical groups of all times, is gearing up for a strong comeback, after 35 whole years!

Something good in the making

Their news is making the rounds of the globe today! The winners of the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest, who were also crowned as the contest’s most popular entrants of all years at the Congratulations: 50 years of Eurovision Song Contest show in 2005, will be back following a joint decision and according to their words, it felt like those 35 years were only a short pause!

Here are their enthusiastic statements:

The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!

We may have come of age, but our songs are new. And it feels good.

From this surprising return, we will get the opportunity to listen to two brand-new songs, whilst one them, called I still have faith in you, will air at a two-hour show produced by NBC and BBC networks in December.

But there will be a small difference: the 4 beloved members of the group will not be singing and dancing themselves. Instead, their virtual substitutes are going to replace them, and they’ll be called “Abbatars“. However, this gig will really take us back, as it will be showcasing ABBA exactly as they were at their greatest times, towards the end of the 70s, with them performing their unforgettable hits, like their Eurovision entry Waterloo, as well as Mamma mia and Dancing queen.

Here you may recall their victorious appearance at Eurovision 1974 in Brighton:

ΑΒΒΑ group consisted of Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, as well as their wives, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad respectively. Over their career, they enjoyed enourmous success, having sold approximately 500 million records, whilst they have also been among the most world-renowned music performers from a non-English speaking country.

We’re lookin’ forward to your new hits, ABBA!
