They’re one of the most commercially successful music groups in history, with hits that have survived five decades. But ABBA haven’t been glimpsed as a group together for over seven years.
Agnetha Fältskog, now 65, Björn Ulvaeus, 70, Benny Andersson, 69, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 70, were last pictured together in 2008, when they walked the red carpet at the film premiere of Mamma Mia!, based on the musical of the same name.
That all changed last night, when the Swedish pop foursome got together for the opening of a new restaurant in Stockholm – where people can eat while watching a show based on the group’s songs.

The dining-entertainment venue, based on the Greek taverna featured in the Abba-themed film Mamma Mia!, is the idea of Abba star Bjorn Ulvaeus. He was joined for the opening night by Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and Agnetha Faltskog.
