Abba Voyage Review: No Ordinary Abba Night at the Club
I kept turning to my friend and wanted to tell him how young
and fresh the two women who placed the As in Abba appeared on the giant screens in front of us.
Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad weren’t actually in the room with us
but that’s the kind of anesthetic that Abba Voyage dazzles you with.
Although the Swedish pop band hasn’t played London since 1979
the band’s holographic “Abbatars” in their likeness from that year currently fill a purpose-built arena
for a 90-minute concert of their greatest hits. A combination of motion-captured performances
animated sequences and a live 10-piece band make up the spectacle, proving the music’s enduring relevance.
