ABBA has reportedly ruled out an onstage reunion at the Eurovision 2024, which will be held in Sweden.
Next year marks 50 years since the band won the UK competition.
Talking with BBC Newsthe pair also rejected the notion that they could have dialed in the host nation’s entry.
Bjorn and Benny — who have vowed never to tour again and reportedly turned down a $1 billion offer to play 100 shows at the turn of the millennium — say they don’t want to get back together with Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad to perform – even for one night.
“I don’t want to,” says Benny Andersson, “and if I don’t want to, the others won’t. It’s the same for all four – someone says ‘no’ – it’s a no”.
“We can celebrate 50 years of ABBA without being on stage,” added Bjorn Ulvaeus.
There are still 12 months to change your mind, and the band could still be represented (and certainly will be) through a tribute, or a single member or a video message.
