REUNITED Swedish pop sensation ABBA are heading on tour this month – or at least their holographic younger selves are.
But what have the members been up to in the time in between? Here's all you need to know.
Who are ABBA?
ABBA is Sweden's biggest ever pop group and one of the most popular bands in history.
They have been working together since 1972, when they were in their twenties.
They have sold over 380 million albums and singles worldwide and were the first group from a non-English speaking country to have consistent success in English speaking countries.
The band was named after the band members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
They won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with their smash hit Waterloo before going on to enjoy worldwide success. Benny and Anni-Frid were married between 1978 and 1980, as were Bjorn and Agnetha married in 1971 but divorced in 1979; they had a son and a daughter together.
The band became well known for their 70s style outrageous costumes throughout their career.
On November 5, 2021, ABBA reunited after a long 40 year hiatus and released their ninth studio album Voyage.
In 2022, the group will go on tour, performing using holographic avatars of their younger selves.
The outfits for the show, which their "Abbatars" will wear, have been designed by Dolce & Gabbana.
