The ABBA Voyage concert is made with the help of: Producer Ludvig Andersson (And Then We Danced, Yung Lean – In My Head, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), Producer Svana Gisla (David Bowie Blackstar/Lazarus, Beyoncé and Jay Z for HBO, Springsteen and I), Director Baillie Walsh (Flashbacks of a Fool, Being James Bond, Springsteen and I), Choreographer Wayne McGregor CBE (The Royal Ballet, Company Wayne McGregor, Paris Opera Ballet) and Co-Executive Producer Johan Renck (Spaceman, David Bowie Blackstar/Lazarus, Chernobyl).
Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group, said: “From the very beginning of my career, and having had the privilege to work with them directly for many years since, it’s been a tremendous joy to be surrounded by ABBA and their music.
“Their boundless creativity and timeless melodies make us want to partner with them on everything they do because we know it will be simply great.”
Svana Gisla, Producer, and Ludvig Andersson, Producer, said: “The magic of ABBA and the herculean efforts of this whole magnificent team reaches a long-awaited milestone today.
“To be able to finally share this endeavour with the world is a proud moment for us and we can’t wait to welcome you to our arena in East London, a place where we are so happy to be.”
Baillie Walsh, Director, added: “I watched ABBA win the Eurovision song contest in 1974, and never did I imagine that 47 years later I would be with them on this extraordinary voyage. Life is weird and wonderful sometimes.”
Wayne McGregor, Choreographer said: “Imagine: growing up in the North of England in the 70’s and learning to ballroom, Latin and disco dance to the incredible songs of ABBA. I was 8 and I was totally transported. Fast forward to 2020, being in Sweden and dancing with ABBA – in real life! I was about to be 50 and I was totally transported again. That is the magic of ABBA.
“We have shared many creative and joyful adventures with a bold collaborative team to make the impossible possible for ABBA Voyage: technological wizardry, state of the art immersion and entertainment innovation. And still at its searing heart, we simply have new songs, new moves, classic ones, and classic moves: ABBA is DANCE and always will be. See you on the dancefloor”.
