It’s been decades since the group split in 1983 but there have been constant reports since 2016 that Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida were back together and working on new music and some sort of live hologram concert show. Last week the band posted the first video teaser for the upcoming ABBA Voyage experience. On Monday they officially joined Tik Tok. And today is finally the day for a formal announcement to the world, held in London and broadcast live on Youtube. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH THE LIVE ABBA ANNOUNCEMENT
Appropriately enough, travellers were greeted at waterloo Station today with a huge digital billboard announcing ABBA Voyage.
It was accompanied by an extraordinary image of the four members in their ABBA youth which you can see below. Commentators also immediately pointed out there was a sci-fi, Tron-like style to the advert.
This fits with all the reports that the holograms would depicts the four stars in their 1979 heyday.
Benny said: “He came to Stockholm and he presented this idea to us that we could make identical digital copies of ourselves of a certain age and that those copies could then go on tour and they could sing our songs, you know, and lip-sync.
“I’ve seen this project half-way through and it’s already mind-boggling.”
