My, my, just how much we’ve missed them.
In news that surely had many a fan prancing around like a Dancing Queen, ABBA reunited in 2021 with a brand-spanking new album – and announced an epic hologram tour.
Yep, the original four-piece are back, and their first album in 40 years, ABBA Voyage, has produced several hits, including I Still Have Faith in You and Don’t Shut Me Down.
Agnetha, Benny, Björn, and Anni-Frid are now set to perform together once more, but with a digital twist – appearing on stage as holograms instead of in real life.
So, when is their highly-anticipated tour and can you still get tickets?
When are the ABBA Voyage tour dates?
ABBA Voyage shows begin in London on Friday, May 27 and are running until December 2022.
It’s then expected that the show will hit the road, on a world tour lasting until the year 2026.
The lengthy run is possible all thanks to ‘ABBAtars’ – aka the four holograms which feature the recorded performance of all four ABBA members, singing all the hits.
They were created with George Lucas’ studio Industrial Light & Magic, which is used for the digital effects in Star Wars. The group began working on the digital concert before getting back in the studio.
The initial venue is a special, purpose-built arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London.
The ABBA Voyage residency will see the ABBAtars accompanied by a 10-piece live band, performing in a venue that can seat up to 3000 fans.
