ABBA have been pictured together as they gear up for their hologram performances.
The legendary Swedish pop group reunited ahead of their virtual tour in London and is the first time the band have been pictured together in six years.
The concert kicks off tomorrow (May 27) as the iconic pop stars present their album Voyage – as digital versions of themselves at the custom-built ABBA Arena in London.
The highly anticipated concert will also feature a setlist of hit ABBA songs and a 10-piece live band.
The iconic group is made up of four members – Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, who are now all over 70.
Speaking to DW, Björn was visibly excited about the upcoming concert, saying: "The audience agree to be in this imaginary world for a while at a concert, and they see the ABBAtars as living creatures."
The ABBAtars, which are the name given to the digital holograms the group, will show the stars in late 1970s when they were at the peak of their fame.
Almost four decades after they split, the group confirmed late last year that all four members were working together on new material.
Their final album was released on November 5 and was the group’s first album in 40 years after they called it a day in 1982.
All ten songs featured on the album were composed by ABBA’s songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus who said they are "absolutely trend-blind."
The legendary group, who shot to fame after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, released three singles before Voyage but haven't performed in front of a crowd since 2016.
The group admitted that they would be retiring for good after the release of their final album.
Benny confirmed "this is it, it's got to be," meaning that despite their previous disbandment in 1982, the group definitely won't reform again.
