ABBA - Voyage

  1. I’m very much looking forward to seeing it (on 29 May). I think I’m more excited at this than if it was the real thing. The real ABBA in 1977 or 1979 would have topped this, but it’s the next best alternative.

    I love the whole idea of it - a completely new way of seeing ABBA now as they were then. A reinvention of them. The only show that matched this in terms of my excitement was Kate Bush’s Before The Dawn.

  2. Plus, let's face it, how often do you go to a show and end up stuck somewhere and having to watch stuff on the screen or squint to get a view or get someone in your way? At this, you can just let go and enjoy it for what it is.
     
  3. No one went last night? I can’t bring myself to ask my ‘friends’ who went. Yes, their friend status is in question.

    Phones went into black tagged bags before show thankfully - however there’s pics around of merchandise etc. if interested.

  4. First audience tech preview last night. Social media blackout but it will leak.

  5. One mixed review.

    Says they've missed a few tricks regarding elements to the show itself. Which I can agree with, everyone loves a confetti Canon moment.

  7. It's something I'd love to see, but only if I lived nearby. I'm not travelling hours to see holograms, nope.

  8. Apparently the first song is

    The Visitors
     
  9. Is that confirmed though? Or is it just speculation from when that sheet music pic leaked?
     
  10. Someone that’s seen the preview show yesterday apparently.

  12. Please God give me the strength to avoid this thread until next Saturday night once I've seen the show...

  13. A friend went and has raved non-stop about it. Said it's the most immersive concert experience she's ever been to. And she goes to a LOT of concerts. She said the entire arena comes alive and if the ABBAtars weren't there it would still be a phenomenal experience based on the lighting alone.

  15. A bit more setlist info

    - the setlist from rehearsal last night might not be the final setlist. They’ve already made changes for the remaining rehearsals.

    - Money Money Money & Super Trouper were NOT performed.
