Have you loved ABBA since you existed? Want to meet one of them? You can, if not them in flesh and for real, in virtual reality for sure.
Björn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, belonging to the one of the most successful music groups of all time, attended the opening night of ABBA World — a new interactive museum at London’s Earls Court on January 26.
The new 25-room touring exhibition has not just music, but the Swedish pop group’s stage costumes, gold discs, never-seen-before film footage, and recreations of dressing rooms and studios. Besides, it boasts of karaoke singing booths, dance mats, quiz machines and hologram videos. It means, visitors get to play with, to be a ‘part’ of ABBA in a virtual sort of way.
With the high definition holographic video system Eyeliner, ABBA returns to the stage through a holographic illusion of the group for the visitor to interact with. Among the memorablia, most of the items have been provided by the quartet Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Agnetha Fältskog.
Plans are also afoot for a second ABBA World, the next one being in Australia — the second biggest market for ABBA fans, after the United Kingdom.
