ABBA fans will be excited by the returns of their favorite Swedish 70’s band on an immersive exhibition.
The events titled ABBA: Super Troupers The Exhibition settles at the O2 at the end of the year for a huge exhibition telling the history of the band. Indeed, it explores the music, the lyrics, creative process and rise of this now legendary band after their Eurovision Song Contest win in 1974.
Also, the show includes a lot of undercover artifacts, photos, videos, interviews, costumes and private letters. All of which, offer an unseen and personal look at the band members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
The artistic director, Jude Kelly, set all of this in the social and political context of the time through their albums from Ring Ring in 1973 to The Visitors in 1981.
“That’s what has always interested me in art anyway: what was going on around them at the time? What was going on around them musically? Politically? How was it that Abba kept this strong, single-minded determination to be the best of what a pop band is?”, she said.
Finally, the exhibition includes the Eurovision night and a full-size helicopter as the one on the front of the album Arrival.
ABBA: Super Troupers The Exhibition is at the O2 from December 6 to August 31, 2020, with tickets available from www.abbasupertroupers.com
