ABBA's Agnetha Faltskog hints at reunion

Ladbrokes also offer odds of Swedish band appearing at Royal Wedding

ABBA's Agnetha Faltskog hints at reunion
ABBA singer Agnetha Faltskog has admitted that she is open to a reunion with her former bandmates.

She revealed that she has not discussed reforming with her ex-bandmembers - her ex-husband Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Prinzessin Reuss von Plauen - but would like to meet with them to discuss the idea.

"A reunion, an occasional opportunity, maybe in connection with a charity event, I believe we could consider it," she told M Magazine. "We would not reunite for a tour like The Rolling Stones and other old bands do now.

"However, I could see us doing something together in the future. It is just a feeling I have that it would be fun to get together, talk a bit about the past and maybe perform together."

The group last recorded together in 1982, for an album that was never completed, and broke up in 1983.

Meanwhile, Ladbrokes have offered odds of 66-1 for ABBA to play the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29, 2011.

Other acts tipped to perform include Elton John and Paul McCartney.
