ABBA are back with new music and a live concert series – and we’ve got all the ticket details you need.
The iconic group will release their new album Voyage on 5 November which will be accompanied by a “hologram” concert in London.
The ABBA Voyage show will see the group, Benny, Björn, Anni-Frid and Agnetha transformed into avatars of their younger selves alongside a live band to perform their hits.
Fans will, of course, hear the group’s greatest hits during the show which begins in May 2022, alongside new songs including single “I Still Have Faith In You”.
In a statement the group say ABBA Voyage is “a concert that combines the old and new, the young and not-so-young. A concert that has brought all four of us together again.”
Tickets for the shows go on sale on 7 September via Ticketmaster, but there’s plenty of ways to secure yours early during presale.

The one-of-a-kind concert will take place in a custom-built arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
It’s named the ABBA Arena with the full address: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, E20 2ST.
The venue will include a general admission section for standing (or dancing), auditorium seating and dance booths. There’s eight dance booths in total, each named after people from the ABBA universe, with seating and a personal dancefloor.
Andersson says the band chose to host their digital concert in a purpose-built site in London because it was “the best city to be in.”
“When it comes to entertainment – theatre, musicals, concerts – it is all here. It has been here for years and years and years. There is a big audience travelling here for that reason. It was a no-brainer,” he added.
When is ABBA Voyage?
Well, the new album featuring 10 tracks will be released on 5 November and that will be followed up by the live shows in 2022.
Fans will get the chance to see the unique show live with new and old songs at ABBA Arena. The show currently opens on 27 May and runs until 4 September. But if demand is high you can expect more dates to be added.

What have ABBA said?
Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson have discussed how the album came together, as reported by National World.
“To release an album after 40 years and still be the best of friends and enjoying each other’s company and still have total loyalty. Who has experienced that? Nobody,” they said.
“At first it was just two songs and then we said, ‘Well, maybe we should do a few others’,” Andersson said.
Ulvaeus explained the meaning behind new song “I Still Have Faith In You”, saying: “It is about realising it is inconceivable to be where we are. No imagination can dream up that.”
