ABBA are the band that fans most want to see reunited
The winner takes it all! ABBA triumphs over Oasis and One Direction on list of bands fans most want to see reunited
They dominated the pop charts for a decade with more than 20 hit singles and inspired two films.
So perhaps it is not a surprise that Abba are the band fans most want to see reunited and playing live again.
The Swedish pop group – Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – were propelled to worldwide stardom after they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with Waterloo.

They split in 1982 but clearly still appeal to fans of all ages as 40% of those asked in a survey picked them as one of the three acts they most want to see back together.
Abba were well ahead of the second choice, Oasis, who were named by 28% of the 2,000 polled for ticket resale site StubHub.
They were followed by boyband One Direction, rockers The Verve, Boyzone – who called it quits last year – and 80s indie band The Smiths.
A StubHub spokesperson said: ‘It’s heartbreaking for fans when their favourite bands decide to part ways, and our research shows that millions of Brits are eager for incredible musicians such as Oasis and ABBA to perform live once again.
‘StubHub always offers tickets to the most in-demand live gigs, so we will have to keep our fingers crossed and wait and see if any of these popular bands take the plunge and reform for a UK tour once it is safe to do so.’
