AFTER 40-YEAR HIATUS, ABBA RETURNS

ABBA have announced their first album in 40 years, Voyage, due 11/5 via Capitol. The group also announced a state-of-the-art concert that will see Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid perform digitally with a live 10-piece band in a custom-built arena in London next year.

The digital versions of ABBA have been created following weeks and months of motion-capture and performance techniques with the four band members and an 850-strong team from Industrial Light & Magic, the company founded by George Lucas, in what is the company’s first foray into music. 

"ABBA Voyage" will open 5/27/22 at the ABBA Arena, a state-of-the-art 3,000 capacity arena located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Pre-registration for tickets opens at 6pm tonight on abbavoyage.com with tickets on general sale from Tuesday, 9/7.

UMG Chairman & CEO Sir Lucian Grainge commented, “From the very beginning of my career, and having had the privilege to work with them directly for many years since, it's been a tremendous joy to be surrounded by ABBA and their music. Their boundless creativity and timeless melodies makes us want to partner with them on everything they do because we know it will be simply great.”

Benny Anderson stated, “It’s hard to say what’s been the most joyful thing for me with this project. If it’s the involvement in creating the concert together with everyone or being back in the studio together again after 40 years. I think hearing Frida and Agnetha singing again is hard to beat. When you come to the arena you will have the four of us together with an absolutely glorious 10-piece band.”
