Abba passes the torch on to avatars

People watch an Abba Voyage event at Grona Lund amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden on September 2, 2021. In London, concert-goers will be treated to a 90-minute show, with a dozen live musicians on stage backing up the ‘Abbatars’. – EPA pic, May 25, 2022.

IN one of the longest awaited musical reunions, Swedish pop legends Abba return to the concert stage on Friday in London but only as avatars of their 1970 selves shimmering with shiny costumes, glitter and platform boots.

While fans will hear the quartet’s real voices, the band will not be on stage. Concert-goers will see “Abbatars” projected as holograms, looking like they did at the peak of their fame.
