Together. In public. Arm in arm. Björn and Agnetha. We thought it might never happen again BUT see below for some amazing footage from the Danish première of Mamma Mia!. This article has now been updated with details of an article by Expressen who spoke to Björn and Agnetha.
This is the entirety of the footage featuring Björn and Agnetha that appeared on Danish TV news last night. I suspect more will surface, not least of all from fans.
16 October 2010: The web page to see the original feature is here and it is the very last item of the news programme after the weather forecast.
Before we went on stage Agnetha said to me: “Do you recall that in 1974 when we did Waterloo, at that time we thought that it would last at most a couple of years?” says Björn Ulvaeus after the success of the première of the Danish production of Mamma Mia! which premiered in Tivoli Concert Hall in Copenhagen yesterday evening. The crowd rejoiced loud and long when Björn and Agnetha had their magical on-stage reunion after the performance by the Danish cast.
“It was very spontaneous, not planned. I thought I would go alone to Copenhagen for the première. But at the last minute Agnetha said that she also wanted to be there.” After the show, the crowd stood up and rejoiced. Then Björn and Agnetha appeared on stage there was a rapturous welcome. “We have not been on stage together since 1981 and our last concert in Japan [Ice: For reference, the last Japanese concert was in 1980],” says Björn, who like Agnetha was mightily impressed by the Danish Mamma Mia!.
