“There’s no amount of money in the world that could persuade me to do that. There is simply no motivation to regroup.”
— Björn Ulvaeus
In 2000 they turned down a $1 billion deal to reunite for a 100-date tour. At the time Ulvaeus said: “This is the budget of a small country so we had to give it some thought. In the end we decided that, whatever offer was on the table, it would be stupid to re-form and utterly ludicrous to change the images people all over the world have of us.”
In an interview in the Times today, the male half of the group hints at a reunion. I checked to see if any tour dates were scheduled – I found two for the US. Hmmm. Could it be a done deal?
