If you’ve ever found yourself humming the widely popular tune of “Mamma mia! Here I go again…my my…” then you’re probably a big fan of ABBA, the Swedish pop group of four.

The band was formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad—so if you’re catching on, yes, the group’s name is an acronym of the first letters of their first names.

ABBA is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Their sales are estimated at 150 million records throughout the whole world!

Though that’s true, ended their big run together back in 1982.

That’s why it’s super exciting that the band is reuniting and releasing their first album in 40 years! The album will be called “Voyage.”

Additionally, the band announced that they will get together for a concert, featuring both old and new songs—and even a new look completely.

To commemorate it all, the four have posed for digital artists from ILM (the the visual team behind Star Wars and the studio’s first music project) to create CGI versions themselves in their prime. Appropriately deemed “Abba-tars,” the band will perform as that version of themselves for the concert. Check out the amazing work below.

The point of the “Abba-tars” is to really hone into their new technological feel for their upcoming concert.

“Experience ABBA on stage in a concert like no other,” the official website states. “Blurring the lines between the physical and digital, see the magic of ABBA brought to life using the latest in motion capture technology. It’s the greatest ABBA performance the world has never seen. Until now.”

The concert will be held in a newly custom-built arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London in spring 2022. You can purchase your tickets now for dates from May through October!
