The four former members of Abba have made a rare joint appearance for the opening of a Stockholm restaurant inspired by the Mamma Mia! musical.

Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad showed up for the opening night of fellow band member Bjoern Ulvaeus' Greek taverna, where guests are invited to sing along to Abba tunes.

However, they did not sing and rejected suggestions they would perform together again, with Andersson saying: "I don't think so." The restaurant, where musicians and actors interact with waiters and guests, borrowed the setting from the Mamma Mia! musical and film, but Ulvaeus said: "It's a completely different story."
