    Abba's song 'Mamma Mia' will not be played in full in the film of the same name. Fans will only get to hear short bursts of the song in the movie, which stars Meryl Streep, Julie Walters and Pierce Brosnan.

    "You'll just hear short bursts of the song at the end, I gather. For some reason, it won't be played in full," the Daily Express quoted Abba's former guitarist Lasse Wellander, 55, who plays on the film's soundtrack, as saying.

    The newspaper report says that director Phyllida Lloyd is not keen on the single released by the band in 1975. It also reveals that the director has axed 'Knowing Me Knowing You'.

    The original backing band will be premiering a special concert called 'The Abba Show' at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 26, adds the report.
