Pop legends ABBA are back on the scene, but only in the form of virtual avatars. ABBA worked with an 850-strong team from Industrial Light & Magic, founded by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas, for the project.
Accompanied by a live band, the avatars, or ABBA-tars, perform some 20 songs during the 90-minute show, called “Voyage”. During the show, they made jokes and even had costume changes.
The real ABBA watched among the audience and came on stage at the end, hugging each other and waving to the crowd.
