Abba is a legendary Swedish pop band whose members are considering a reunion of the band to mark the 40th anniversary of their first hit album Waterloo.

Abba music group is a legend in the pop history of Sweden. Though not officially, but the group was broken in early 80s. All the members are old now. But the 40th anniversary of their first hit Waterloo is near. The founder of Abba band, Agnetha Faltskog, said that the band members are considering a reunion to mark the Waterloo anniversary.

Guitarist and songwriter Bjorn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Faltskog together formed the Abba pop band in 1972. Both het married later on. However, in early 80s, Faltskog and Ulvaeus get divorced. And the band was broken after that. 

63 years old Agnetha told a weekly German newspaper, Welt am Sonntag, "Of course it's something we're thinking about. There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can't say at this point what will come of them." But she also said that all band members are old now and it is difficult to go on stage at this age. "I cannot imagine that we would go on stage with crutches," she said.

Waterloo is the band's first album of the Abba band released in 1974. It's a big hit. After Waterloo, many numbers of the band became hit including Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and Super Trouper. The last album of the band, The Visitors, released in 1982. It was also a hit. More than 380 million copies of this album were sold. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame also add this album in its list in 2010. 

Agnetha said, "We are the only group of that status that has never been reunited. I think that is cool. It is strength for Abba that you remember those young, ambitious, energetic people during the 70s rather than some feeble old folks who feel compelled to get up and play all the time."
