It’s official! The journey is about to begin… Everyone’s favourite group is returning next year for a concert that’s been 40 years in the making.
Here they go again! The Swedish pop band comprised of Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Björn Ulvaeus have announced the greatest ABBA performance the world has never seen.
Called ABBA Voyage, it combines the old and new, the young and not-so-young, while bringing the four beloved band members together again through their music.
Known for such heady, disco-tastic hits as Dancing Queen, Take A Chance On Me, Mamma Mia, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! and many more, the group confirmed details for a truly ground-breaking experience that opens from 27 May 2022.
With a reputation for insanely energetic live shows, ABBA have designed the kind of concert they always wanted to do – where they get to travel back in time and perform for fans as digital versions of their best selves.
Blurring the lines of reality, the magic of ABBA’s past is being brought into the present with the latest motion capture technology. Audiences will see the band as they were from 1979 – but with a surprising futuristic spin.
Staged in a custom-built venue dubbed the ABBA Arena in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the virtual foursome will be accompanied by a live 10-piece band. Plus, ABBA Voyage offers plenty of unique ways to enjoy the show that include watching everything unfold from your seat in the auditorium to dancing the night away as part of the exhilarating Dance Booth option.
With ABBA’s last album released back in 1982, the super-Swedes have also revealed a new record titled Voyage is on the way.
