ABBA, one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, is releasing its first new album since 1981, and going on tour.
I know what you’re thinking: It’s great that they’re releasing an album of new material, but the Swedish septuagenarians simply don’t have the stamina to sing for a couple of hours, let alone tour.
It wasn’t just the pulsating disco music that made ABBA a huge sensation in the 70’s, the Swedish supergroup were fashionistas, nobody rocked the cameltoe aesthetic like the ABBA divas.
I love me some ABBA, but I don’t want to see sexy (?) Swedish septuagenarians rock a cameltoe.
Relax, the ageing rockers will be performing digitally, not in person. The digital versions of ABBA were created via months of motion-capture and performance techniques with the four band members, and a team from Industrial Light & Magic. Supposedly, this technique is more realistic than holograms.
This dancing queen is planning on buying the forthcoming ABBA album “Voyage,” to be released November 5, and I might even attend one of their digital performances.
