Agnetha, Frida, Benny & Bjorn arrive at the ABBA Voyage Arena London

All eyes were on the purpose-built ABBA Arena in London on the opening night of the much anticipated ABBA Voyage Concert. Hundreds of fans travelled from all around the world in order to catch a glimpse of Agnetha, Frida, Benny & Bjorn arrive at the ABBA Voyage Arena London. This 3,000 capacity stay of the art purpose built venue is near the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the East End of London. As various celebrities arrived one by one the anticipation was building. Would ALL members of ABBA even turn up? If so, who would arrive first?

Suddenly a Black London Cab pulled up & as the doors began to open, the fans went ballistic. Crowds of Media & Security surrounded the Hackney Carriage as all four members of ABBA stepped forward. I could hardly lift my camera to my eye as I was caught up in the excitement & screams. This was the first time all four members of the band had appeared in public in 40 years. Now in their 70’s they looked amazing. Agnetha & Frida looking very elegant dressed in their cream Fendi outfits, Bjorn in a dark smart blazer & Benny the most colourful member in a long Yohji Yamamoto full length jacket.

The ABBA Voyage concert shows the group as digital avatars (or ABBAtars as they call them) Based on ABBA in their heyday, the ABBAtars show the group as they were in 1979. I can honestly say it is one of the best concerts I have ever seen. When ABBA appear on stage you think they are 100% real. The clips that are up on YouTube really do not do it justice as you have to see it to believe it. The lighting inside the venue is just beautiful & there is also a live band on stage playing instruments & singing, which works perfectly. It’s safe to say I will definitely be going again soon!
