Since May 2022, fans have been able to attend an approximately 90-minute ABBA show in an arena in London, where rejuvenated avatars of Agnetha Fältskog (72), Benny Andersson (76), Björn Ulvaeus (77) and Anni-Frid Lyngstad (77) to stand on the stage. If you want to experience the elaborate performance including numerous hits by the band yourself, you may soon no longer have to travel to Great Britain. As "Variety" reports, the "Voyage" show is apparently going on tour.
Lucian Grainge (63), CEO of Universal Music Group, said during an earnings call from the label that plans are currently being made to take ABBA's "Voyage" show "around the world". However, details are not yet known.
For example, it is not clear how the whole thing is supposed to work. The US industry magazine suspects that Universal could plan to bring the show to specially modified arenas in major cities around the world. It is also not known whether she will come to Germany. When asked, spokesmen for ABBA and Universal declined to provide further information, the report says.
In an interview with "Welt am Sonntag" in January, Ulvaeus stated that ABBA would not return to the stage. "No, we won't be giving any more concerts. We've always said that, and it stays that way," he made clear. "But our avatars will sing forever, they will outlive us." You can't tour with a show like that, but you could build arenas in other places, Ulvaeus said. "We're thinking about Singapore, Las Vegas and a city in Europe," he revealed. But Berlin is not an option.
