ABBA duo for London tribute gig

ABBA songwriting duo, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus have both been confirmed to appear at an ABBA tribute concert in London's Hyde Park on September 13.

Rumours in the tabloids last week that the massively succesful Swedish group were to reform have been flatly denied by ABBA founder Andersson.

"No-one's asked us and if they did we wouldn't say yes," he said during an interview on BBC 1 on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.

The tribute concert Thank You For The Music... A Celebration Of The Music Of Abba will see co-writer Bjorn Ulvaeus appear, however guest vocalists have yet to be revealed.

Ticket details for the Radio 2 event will be announced soon.
