The members of ABBA have sung together on stage for the first time in more than 30 years.

Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad made a rare joint appearance on Sunday at a celebration to mark 50 years since the legendary pop group was born.

It was half a century since Andersson and Ulvaeus first met.

The quartet sang ‘The Way Old Friends Do’ and later Edward af Sillén, Eurovision Song Contest director and scriptwriter, tweeted: ‏”Wow! Last night history was made: ABBA finally reunited. All 4 on the same stage, singing together.”

The Swedish act split in 1982 and has not performed together since 1986.

The party was held at the Berns Salonger hotel in downtown Stockholm.
