Abba Voyage Hologram Show: £322M Boost to UK Economy, Over 1M Tickets Sold at Up to £181.50

Hologram Magic Lights Up London

Abba's hologram show, Abba Voyage, has proven to be a phenomenal success, injecting a staggering £322 million into the British economy. A recent report reveals the extraordinary financial impact of this Swedish hit-makers' venture in London.

Situated in the iconic Queen Elizabeth Park in east London, the former home of the 2012 Olympics, Abba Voyage showcases the four-piece band as digital avatars. These glittering avatars, representing Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, captivate sell-out crowds at the 3,000-capacity Abba Arena each night.

The economic analysis, conducted by Strategists Sound Diplomacy and social value consultancy RealWorth, emphasizes the significant contributions of the Abba Voyage attraction over the past year. More than a million tickets, priced at up to £181.50 each, were sold, making it one of the most sought-after experiences in London.

The impact of Abba Voyage extends beyond entertainment, with the report indicating a positive influence on the local economy. Spending around the area reached £322.6 million, benefiting neighboring boroughs such as Newham, Hackney, and Tower Hamlets. The influx of visitors led to increased spending on accommodation, food and drink, transportation, and shopping.

In addition to its economic impact, the Abba Voyage experience has played a crucial role in supporting over 5,000 jobs in London. This includes employment opportunities at the venue itself and in various other sectors.

The success story of Abba Voyage isn't limited to the UK. Following its extended run in London, the hologram show is set to captivate audiences worldwide. The meticulously crafted 90-minute concert, featuring 'Abbatar' versions of the band members, takes audiences on a nostalgic journey through Abba's prime in the 1970s and 1980s.

As the Mail reports, the show has received critical acclaim. Adrian Thrills awarded it a four-star review, praising the avatars for their 'realistic' appearance and 'rocking' performance. Highlights include a dance medley featuring hits like "Lay All Your Love On Me" and "Summer Night City," along with a spectacular rendition of "Waterloo," where avatars are projected against vintage footage of the band's 1974 Eurovision triumph in Brighton.
