It’s been 40 years since the last ABBA album and as Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid are set to release a new record tomorrow, the concert trailer for ABBA Voyage has landed. Arriving with the release of new tickets, the band’s show teaser features some amazing unseen footage of the ABBAtars in action.

It may only be 21 seconds long but the short clips give fans a taster of the start-of-the-art digital experience inside the ABBA Arena starting in May 2022.
The newly released tickets are taking bookings up to December 2022 and include weekends.
While the ABBA Voyage concert will take place at the ABBA Arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
The show will see the band’s motion-captured ABBAtars perform a set of their greatest hits alongside brand new tracks like I Still Have Faith in You and Don’t Shut Me Down.
The ABBAstars will be accompanied by a ten-piece live band inside the ABBA Arena.
ABBA Voyage is directed by Baillie Walsh, produced by Svana Gisla and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’s Ludvig Andersson, Benny’s son.
Last month, the band confirmed their retirement after their final album releases tomorrow and concerts take place in their 50th anniversary year.
Speaking with The Guardian, Benny said: “This is it. I didn’t actually say that, ‘This is it’ in 1982 [when we split].”
Benny continued: “I never said myself that ABBA was never going to happen again. But I can tell you now: this is it.”
The 74-year-old shared this news alongside his ABBA co-star Björn Ulvaeus, with who he wrote two songs that didn’t make it onto the Voyage album.
Instead, those tracks will remain unfinished and presumably never see the light of day, as the duo also confirmed there will be no more new ABBA music.
Benny said: “This is it. It’s got be, y’know.” While Björn quietly nodded in agreement: “Yeah.”
Agnetha Faltskog has also recently cast doubt on ABBA continuing after Voyage releases.
She told Swedish radio: “I don’t really dare to say… We’re a bit older now and have our minor ailments. We struggle on. But I don’t dare say, because it’s a bit uncertain.
“At the moment we feel happy that we got this together and let’s hope everything goes well in London at the premiere over there.”
ABBA Voyage is released tomorrow and concert tickets can be purchased here.
