The immersive music experience called ‘ABBA Voyage’ is a revolutionary concert like no other. The iconic Swedish pop group ABBA has returned in all their glory and how! Taking place at London’s ABBA Arena, this ground-breaking concert will take audiences back in time on a dazzling voyage via ABBA’s timeless and musical hits. As if ABBA's music alone isn't enough, seeing the icons' digital avatars (dubbed ABBA-tars) made the experience so much more meaningful. It was almost impossible to remember that these ABBA-tars are merely digital avatars - they are so life-like! The venue in itself is mind-blowing and perfect for experiencing such an immersive concert. One can even go in for the dancing booth section. After all, who can resist dancing to ABBA's tunes?
ABBA's timeless melodies have resounded with multiple generations, and as expected, their return to the stage was met with roaring applause. The setlist for ABBA Voyage was a thoughtfully planned selection of songs that showcased the band's impressive career. The concert smoothly transitioned from ABBA's popular hits to their less well-known songs, pleasing both longtime fans and new listeners. Each song was accompanied by dazzling visuals, transporting the audience to different eras and settings. The production spared no expense in creating a visually stunning spectacle, with mesmerizing lighting and immersive stage designs. ABBA Voyage effectively combined the classic elements of ABBA's performances with modern touches to give them a more current feel.
