Abba Reunion Says Benny

Mama Mia! Abba star Benny Andersson has revealed that the Swedish supergroup will reunite to save a local landmark in their homeland.

Hundred-year-old docklands in the capital Stockholm are under threat of demolition from a redevelopment scheme that will destroy the area's heritage, say protestors.

Now Abba songwriter Benny, 64, says he's willing to stage a reunion with the other four band members to help save the docks, known locally as the 'Slussen.'

"If I knew with 100 percent certainty that it would help, I would call the others and ask if we could do a gig. I'd try at least," he told local media.

"Slussen is that important. But there is not much time, we'd need at least one day's rehearsing," he added.

An Abba reunion got a boost earlier this year when blonde singer Agnetha Faltskog said she'd back a reunion for a special cause.

"I just feel it would be fun to meet, chat about the old days and perhaps perform together," she said.

"We would not get together again for a tour like the Rolling Stones and other old bands do. I think we would all consider a one-off reunion , maybe for a good cause," she added.

Abba split in 1982 eight years after they shot to fame following their win at the Eurovision Song Contest.

They have since turned down a 1 billion USD offer to get together for a 100 date world tour.

Local councillors are now facing an appeal from Andersson and other protestors after the development programme cleared its first planning hurdle on Monday night (dec 12).
