ABBA celebrate 40 years

ABBA have reunited and announced they will be hosting a “revolutionary” concert residency from May 2022.

To accompany their newly revealed album, Voyage, which will be released 5 November, the band will embark on a four-year residency from May 2022 – but with a twist.

Instead of original members Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Anni-Frid embarking on a world tour, they will instead send digital avatars of themselves to perform to millions of fans around the globe.

General sale for tickets will begin on Tuesday (7 September) at 10am.

Created with George Lucas’ studio Industrial Light & Magic, which is used for the digital effects in Star Wars, animated versions of the band will be going around the world from 2022 to 2026.

The residency will take place at the purpose-built ABBA Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, which has capacity for 3,000 fans.

First look at ABBA Voyage concert venue

If you missed it yesterday, The Independent was given a first look at the purpose-built arena where the ABBA Voyage concerts will take place in Stratford, London.

All four members of ABBA will appear onstage digitally with a 10-piece band for the shows.

Speaking about the reunion, ABBA said in a statement: “It’s been a while since we made music together. Almost 40 years, actually. We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we’ve decided it’s time to end it. They say it’s foolhardy to wait more than 40 years between albums, so we’ve recorded a follow-up to “The Visitors”.

“To tell the truth, the main inspiration to record again comes from our involvement in creating the strangest and most spectacular concert you could ever dream of. We’re going to be able to sit back in an audience and watch our digital selves perform our songs on a stage in a custom-built arena in London next spring. Weird and wonderful!”

The ABBA Voyage album – new music reviews

I was really impressed by the two ABBA singles the band released during their global announcement... read my review below!

ABBA’s first new songs in 40 years are gold standard – review

The band claim they’re ‘not the same this time around’ but to fans, it will seem as though nothing’s changed. How wonderful that is
