Abba star Agnetha Faltskog is refusing to go on tour to promote her new material as she fears fans will be disappointed if they hear her sing live.

The Swedish singer has stepped back into the spotlight by releasing her first album of new material since 1987, A, which hit shelves last month (May13).

However, Faltskog is adamant she is too fearful to head back on the road to perform her new songs live.

She tells Britain's Radio Times magazine, "No, I can't (go on tour). That's my weakest (point), the live thing. And also the fact that I'm older now, so I can't do that. I don't want to disappoint people."
