BBC, NBC turn ABBA into ‘Abbatars’

One-off show is expected to be broadcast around the world later this year

The BBC and NBC are uniting on a one-off ABBA tribute show which will reunite all four members of the group as avatars.

According to Bj√∂rn Ulvaeus, all four members of ABBA have been involved in the creation of their digital forms. 

“It’s a kind of Abba tribute show, but the centrepiece will be something I call ‘Abbatars’. It is digital versions of Abba, from 1979,” Ulvaeus told AFP.

“It’s the first time it’s ever been done.”

“Techno artists” from Silicon Valley measured the heads of the four Abba members and photographed them from all angels, Ulvaeus said.

No further details about the show have been revealed.
