Last night Agnetha Faltskog, one-fourth of the legendary group ABBA, performed in her first high-profile gig in 25 years when she took to the stage in London for the Children in Need Rocks concert.
The reclusive Swede performed the duet “I Should Have Followed You Home” alongside Gary Barlow, the UK X Factor judge and former member of the boy band Take That. There is clearly harmony between them: Barlow penned that number for Agnetha’s new album. We don’t have any video footage at the moment, but the BBC will air highlights from the show on November 14 at 8pm, so hopefully we can update this post with Agnetha in action soon.
Agnetha famously quit ABBA in 1982 and has stayed out of the public eye ever since. But rumours are swirling that ABBA may reunite to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their win at Eurovision. And Agnetha seems to be warming to the idea of the spotlight. She recently released her comeback album A and her singles “When You Really Loved Someone” and “Dance Your Pain Away”. A climbed to #6 on the UK charts.
On November 11 she posted the following clip on YouTube, saying that she was looking forward to seeing all of us in London soon. Was she teasing last night’s performance?
