This is so great!
Fifty years ago Sunday — June 5, 1966 — Bj├â┬╢rn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson met for the very first time.
If you don’t know those names, you certainly know the name ABBA; Bj├â┬╢rn and Benny are the B’s in the superstar disco group!
The pair, plus fellow members Agnetha F├â┬ñltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstand, gathered together in a Stockholm music hall on Sunday night to commemorate that day fifty years ago that the whole pop stardom train began — and the legendary Swedish group celebrated with a performance!!
Partygoers were treated to music all night from the original members of ABBA, as well as other important Swedish artists that wanted to be there to pay their respects to the highly influential and long-lasting act.
And of course, the big four got their hugs and love in together on stage, too (below):
One concert-goer revealed a very emotional reaction to the whole thing, saying:
“A magical night. I never could have dreamed it would become such a party. I feel like I can die happy having experienced a night like this. We witnessed a piece of music history tonight.”
Sounds like quite the poignant private party, and the type of reunion in which you’d be just like a Dancing Queen — having the time of your life!
