London, May 7: Former 'Abba' member, Bjorn Ulvaeus, has confirmed that there won't be a reunion for the famous band of the 1970's.
The 68-year-old, who inaugurated a new 'Abba museum' in Sweden on Monday, said that it is the only place where fans would see the pop group back together and that is the closest they will ever get, the Daily Express reported.

The musician, who is married to band mate Agnetha Faltskog, said that he is very proud of the exhibition and wants the visitor to get closer to them than ever before.

Maggie, we know, cared little for the arts — why should she, when every play, film or standup comedian was basically slagging her off?
