On Sunday, the four members of Swedish group ABBA performed together in over 30 years.

The event occurred at a private gala to mark 50 years since song writers Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson met for the first time.

As well as discussing their personal careers, the group performed their 1980 hit “Me and I”.

The unexpected performance is reported to have begun when Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad sang the track as a tribute to Andersson and Ulvaeus, when the men decided to join in and make the reunion official.

Speaking to Expressen, a Swedish newspaper, about their performance, Lyngstad said “It was absolutely amazing. A lot of emotions. – We’ve made this journey throughout our history. Benny and Björn in particular. It’s been very nostalgic.”

“We took a break in ‘82, and it was meant to be a break,” Ulvaeus said in 2014. “It’s still a break and will remain so. You’ll never see us on stage again.”

 No videos of the private performance have emerged yet, but we will update you if one does!
