The ABBA Arena is coming to Stratford
You can imagine our excitement on hearing that the ABBA Arena, London, is to open at Stratford’s very own Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The recently announced news is music to the ears of many fans, given it will be the band’s first concert in over 40 years. And, with new generations of fans now avidly waiting to hear the songs in concert, tickets are bound to be in high demand.
Announced in conjunction with the news of the new Voyage album and tour, fans are set to come from all over the world to East London, to the purposely built Arena.
The state of the art arena will blur the lines between live performance and “Avatar” technology. The stars of ABBA will perform, in “ABBAtar” form, not only songs from the new album, but over 90 minutes which include classics like Dancing Queen and Mamma Mia.
The “ABBAtars” themselves were created by Industrial Light and Magic, a George Lucas company, who used motion-capture technology with the band members themselves to accurately mimic their behaviours.
The production of the concert in East London is down to Svana Gisla, who is known to have worked with the likes of Beyonce and David Bowie.
To visit the ABBA Arena in London, you’ll have to purchase a ticket to the Voyage tour, which will be available from the 7th September. Or keep your eyes peeled on our Stories section for the latest updates as and when they happen!
