Prince William London, Jan 4 (IANS) Popular Swedish pop group Abba could be set to reform after more than 30 years following claims by band member Agnetha Faltskog she would be keen to meet up and “perhaps perform together”.Faltskog - one fourth of the group alongside Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson - has confirmed she would like to “chat” with her former bandmates about the possibility of doing a one-off show, despite previously hinting she did not want to revisit the past, reports

The 60-year-old Swede said: “I feel it would be fun to meet, chat about the old days and perhaps perform together. We would not get together again for a tour like the Rolling Stones and some other old bands do. But I think we would all consider a one-off reunion, maybe for a good cause.”

Agnetha who has made three solo albums since splitting with the “Waterloo” hitmakers added she was “uninterested” in the idea of any further fame because of how high-profile she was a young adult.

“I am uninterested in appearing in newspapers and on television. Many people think that I am striking a pose - that I want to create a sense of shyness. But it’s just not something I want to do,” she said.

“I overdosed. When I was 15 I became a full-time singer in a band. At 18 I made my first record. When I was 25, Abba was formed. After Abba I made three solo albums. Maybe I have been productive enough,” she added.

In December, it was claimed the band that rose to fame on the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 would perform at the royal wedding of Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton April 29.
