Could ABBA reunion serve as O2’s replacment for Michael Jackson?

Probably not, especially given that 50% of the legendary Swedish foursome, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, have long expressed their desire NOT to reunite, but ABBA is indeed rumored to be among the replacements being considered to fill the 50-date void now present in the schedule of London’s O2 Arena. Other possibilities reportedly (via AP) include an all-star Michael Jackson tribute show — featuring Madonna, Diana Ross, Wyclef Jean, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Barbra Streisand? — and a Jackson family concert, minus Michael, though neither of those two scenarios would likely be a realistic solution for more than a couple dates.
