Legendary pop group ABBA are returning to London in a new concert
ABBA – the world’s most successful pop group of all time – is staging an extraordinary new concert in London.
Featuring all of their classic hits, plus new songs from their ABBA Voyage album, the show promises to be the sensation of 2022.
ABBA has sold nearly 400 million albums worldwide, with 17 No. 1 hits and over 16 million weekly global streams, making them one of the world’s most successful music acts of all time. And their songs – including Waterloo, The Winner Takes It All, Dancing Queen and Super Trouper, have become the soundtrack to multiple generations.
ABBA Voyage promises to be a spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive the fun and fabulous music of ABBA.
Are ABBA in the show?
Well, kind of.ABBA Voyage will see Agnetha, Anni-Frid, Björn and Benny perform digitally with a live 10-piece band, all in a brand new, purpose-built arena.
The digital versions of the four ABBA legends have been created by using motion-capture and performance techniques based on how the actual fab four actually move and perform. Disney’s Hollywood special effects company Industrial Light & Magic has then taken this and created stunning, full size avatars of the four, who will perform live with the band.
It promises to be nothing like you have ever seen on stage before.
Where is the ABBA Voyage concert?
The concert is playing in a brand new venue called ABBA Arena, a state-of-the-art 3,000 capacity space located in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London.
