ABBA reunited for a one-off performance in Stockholm at the weekend, the first time the quartet had been on stage together in more than 30 years.

At a private gala to mark 50 years since song writing duo Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson first met, the pair were joined on stage by Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

In an unexpected, impromptu performance the group sang their 1980 hit Me and I.

ABBA’s last tour took place in 1982 and they were last publicly seen together in Stockholm in January for the opening of a new entertainment venture, Mamma Mia! The Party.

Lyngstad told Swedish newspaper Expressen their reunion was “absolutely amazing”.

“A lot of emotions,” she said. “We’ve made this journey throughout our history.

“Benny and Björn in particular. It’s been very nostalgic.”

Despite their occasional individual performances, the group – made up of two former married couples – decided they would not reunite for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

ABBA had numerous smash hits including Dancing Queen, Super Trouper, Waterloo and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme.
