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.

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.”
