ABBA’s Agnetha Faltskog has said the band may never appear on stage together again after their Voyage tour.

Agnetha Fältskog has hinted ABBA’s upcoming Voyage virtual concert could be their last.

The band delighted fans earlier this month when they announced they were making an epic comeback.

The four piece - made up of Agnetha, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad - are set to release a new album on November 5.

They also revealed their upcoming tour, which will see a ‘digital version’ of ABBA perform alongside a live band, will kick off next year.

While speaking to Sverige Radio in Sweden about rehearsals for the ABBA experience, 71-year-old Agnetha was asked when the four of them will appear together again.

"I don't really dare to say,” she said, continuing: "We're a bit older now and have our minor ailments. We struggle on. But I don't dare say, because it's a bit uncertain.

"At the moment we feel happy that we got this together and let's hope everything goes well in London at the premiere over there."

The pop star added: "None of us probably knew what to expect but we’ve worked with it a lot so you grew into it eventually.

“We stand there doing these songs with I don’t know how many cameras and people.

“It felt great to do it in the end because it was so different. Also there was a vibe, one felt that maybe it’s the last thing we do. Same thing with the album.”
