ABBA are known for their top hits including Take A Chance On Me, Fernando, S.O.S and Money, Money, Money to name a few. With an extremely successful career in the music industry, how much are they worth?

Thanks to their singing talent, the members of ABBA have built up a huge fortune. 

According to CelebrityNetWorth, each member of the band is said to be worth at least £229million. 

This puts their total net worth as a group at around a staggering £900million. 

The Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 and the group’s name is an acronym for the first letters of their first names. 

They became one of the most successful bands in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1974 to 1983.

Their albums have been sold more than 150million times and have success all round the world. 

ABBA also raked the money in from tours and performances. 

They have also added to their net worth by allowing their music to be used in a number of films and TV shows.

ABBA also won the European Song Content in 1974 and are the most successful group to have taken part in the competition. 

That same year, the band embarked on their first European tour but due to a lack of demand, they were forced to cancel a few shows. 

It wasn’t until two years later when they released a compilation of their greatest hits that they gained attention in the UK with their album gaining the number one spot for several weeks in a row. 

In 2015, their hit single Dancing Queen was added to the Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame. 

During their singing years, the band consisted of two married couples: Agnetha Fältskog, 70, with Björn Ulvaeus, 75, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 74, with Benny Anderson, 73.

As their popularity increased, their marriages suffered which resulted in the collapse of both marriages whilst still performing in the band. 

Their final public appearance together as ABBA before their 2016 reunion was on The Late, Late Breakfast Show in 1982. 

ABBA split in 1983 and Björn and Benny added to their worth by starting a band called Chess.

Their music was then turned into a musical and has toured all over the world including appearances on Broadway and London’s West End. 

Now Benny has his own band called Benny Andersson’s Orchestra which consists of 16 musicians, all playing different instruments. 

Anni-Frid Lyngstad now focuses on her charity work and shares a home with her British boyfriend Henry Smith, 5th Viscount Hambleden, who is a descendant of the founders of the stationery group WHSmith.

In 1999, ABBA’s music was adapted into the musical Mamma Mia! that toured worldwide and a film of the same name, released in 2008, became the highest-grossing film in the UK that year.

The DVD sold over 1.7million copies on its first day, beating the record of 1.2million copies set by Titanic in 1998. 

A sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, was released in 2018, the same year it was announced that the band had recorded two songs after 35 years of not singing together. 

The group confirmed on Instagram that they’d gotten back together to record two new songs and would be appearing on a virtual tour.
