Legendary pop band ABBA is set to make a comeback, with new music and a hologram tour reportedly coming soon.

The Swedish hitmakers rose to fame in the 1970s with a string of hit singles, and they remain one of the most commercially successful groups in music industry history.

ABBA eventually disbanded in the early 1980s, but it looks like a comeback is finally on the cards – at least according to a cryptic social media post.

A new Twitter account, called ABBA Voyage, was launched on Thursday morning (26 August) with a picture showing four glowing rings against a black background.

The post linked to an official “Abba Voyage” website where fans can sign up to a mailing list – but no other information is offered.

ABBA is coming back with new music and a high-tech hologram show

According to The Sun, the band is gearing up to break its 39-year hiatus by releasing new music and launching a high-tech hologram show.

It was revealed in 2018 that ABBA’s four original members – Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid – had reunited to record new music for the first time since their famously messy split.

Writing on Instagram at the time, the band said they had decided to “join forces again and return to the recording studio”.

The group also hinted at the time that it was in the process of launching an “avatar tour project”. ABBA’s plans were apparently delayed by the pandemic, but it looks like they’re finally back on track.

A source told The Sun that ABBA Voyage will run in London and will feature “Abba-tars” of their younger selves broadcast onto a stage.

The four members of ABBA will reportedly attend on the show’s opening night, where they will unveil their “Abba-tars”.

“The show will feature the Abba-tars performing and speaking to the audience,” the insider said. “It will be like taking a step back in time for those watching.”

Luckily for fans, the band is also expected to release the first of their new music in almost four decades next week – so don’t worry if you can’t make it to London to catch their hologram-fronted show.
