Rumor Of The Day: ABBA To Reunite For Royal Wedding
What would it take for the Swedish disco greats of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]ABBA[/lastfm] to do a reunion show? How about the most eagerly anticipated wedding of 2011?
Rumors of the band reforming to play the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton have grown from quiet whispers to open conversation, with British betting firm Ladbrokes even taking bets on the possibility (odds stand at 66 to 1 right now – something of a long shot).
More fuel for the fire: [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]ABBA[/lastfm] singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Agnetha Faltskog[/lastfm] recently mentioned that the band is open to the idea of performing together again.
“A reunion, an occasional opportunity, maybe in connection with a charity event, I believe we could consider it,” she said. “We would not reunite for a tour like the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] 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.”
Alright, so the royal family isn’t exactly a charity case. But still…sing it with us: You can dance, you can dance, having the time of your life…
