ABBA could be reuniting in virtual 3D form

ABBA are set to reunite – in virtual 3D form.
The Swedish pop superstars split up in 1982 after 10 years together and have been the subject of reformation rumours for years, and now it seems fans who want to see the quartet back on stage could get their wish, thanks to Spice Girls’ former manager Simon Fuller.
The pop mogul is said to have been in talks with former members Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson about a hologram-based stage show, though discussions are currently in the "early stages".
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It’s all in the early stages at the moment. Using holograms on stage is not a new thing concept. The technology is already available and it has previously been used for shows featuring stars like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Frank Sinatra."
Benny and Bjorn – who were joined in the band by Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog – want to base the planned shows on ABBA’s tours from 1977 to 1979.
And after the pair were recently pictured with Simon in Las Vegas, it has led to speculation that’s where any shows will take place.
The news comes after the quartet made a rare appearance together in June, marking the 50th anniversary of Benny and Bjorn’s first meeting at a private party at the Berns Salonger hotel in Stockholm.
However, though the foursome appeared on stage, only Agnetha and Frida sang, treating guests to a rendition of ‘The Way Old Friends Do’.
The last time they were all together was for the opening of Stockholm’s ‘Mama Mia! The Party’, which was held on January 20 but they didn’t perform on that occasion.
The 70s group had previously been offered a mind-blowing $1 billion to reform for a reunion tour.
However, the turned it down because they weren’t interested in going on the road again.
Frida, 70, admitted: "No amount of money would change our minds. Maybe we sometimes say it would be good to do a song together again, just a recording and nothing else, but I don’t know if that will happen – so don’t say that we will."
The group also opted not to perform at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
