ABBA Voyage: Swedish pop legends announce new album and hologram stage show

·1-min read

They changed their mind and now we're the first in line - after vowing to never reform, ABBA are back, and they are finally getting (sort of) back on stage.

It has been nearly 40 years since they decided to split up for good, but the record-breaking pop icons are officially back together.

Anni-Frid, Agnetha, Benny and Bjorn have revealed they will release their first studio album since the 1980s, and that they will be heading back on to the stage as holograms.

A purpose-built venue in east London will house the show, which will play out the group's reformation in a documentary.

Rumours of the group getting back together set the internet ablaze last year, when tabloid newspapers reported the group had been spotted at west London's Ealing Studios working on their new show.

And it appears the rumours were true, and fans will be able to live out their Dancing Queen fantasies after almost four decades.

New album Voyage will be released on 5 May - a follow up to 1984's The Visitors which had been the group's final album.

The stage show, which will see the group perform as holograms, has been made by George Lucas's special effects company, using motion capture and other techniques.

The holograms will be joined on stage with a live band in the new arena in east London from next May.
