When is the Abba “Abbatar” tour?
The tour will take place either in 2019 or 2020.
Before then a TV special will be broadcast on the BBC and NBC in December 2018.
This will feature a new song that the band have written – I Still Have Faith In You.
In a statement on their website the band said: “The decision to go ahead with the exciting Abba avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence.
“We all felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio.
“So we did. And it was like time had stood still and we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!”

How will the Abba “Abbatar” tour work?
The singers will appear as computer generated digital version of themselves.
They will appear as their younger selves at the height of their fame in the 70s and 80s.
Band member Bjorn Ulvaeus, 72, said: “They photographed us from all possible angles, they made us grimace in front of cameras, they painted dots on our faces, they measured our heads.
“Apparently a cranium doesn’t change with age the way the rest of your body falls apart.”
