Even if the group broke up in 1982, they enjoyed continued fame since, thanks to tribute bands mimicking their satin outfits and easy-listening music and lyrics.
They attracted new fans recently with the musical “Mamma Mia!” which was turned into a film.
But they have persistently shunned the chance to regroup, turning down as much as 1 billion dollars to tour again in 2000.
In an interview Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus told that an intimate one-off performance that could be screened around the world could be a possibility.
“Yeah, why not?” said Andersson, who now owns a farm where he breeds horses.
“I don’t know if the girls sing anything any more,” he added. “I know Frida was in the studio.”
He added later: “It’s not a bad idea, actually.”
Ulvaeus said: “We could sing ‘The Way Old Folks Do,'” in a reference to one of their “Super Trouper” album songs.
