The Swedish pop group Abba—the top-selling band of the '70s—is now being celebrated with a touring exhibition.
All of the blitz and bling debuts today in London at ABBAWorld.
Strut your platform disco shoes to the Earl's Court exhibition center, and join a "hologram" of the band onstage—and other karaoke-style opportunities to belt out the group's hits.
Who will go? Fans of Mamma Mia (both the musical and the movie), kids who adore MTV's Taking the Stage, and some gay guys. Together, they love Abba. The movie Mamma Mia alone has grossed more than $600 million.
The exhibition is complete with memorabilia and original costumes and instruments. Tickets: livenation.co.uk, $36 (£22) plus the usual outrageous booking fee.
Can't make it to London? Good news: This exhibition will go on tour worldwide. No dates for a U.S. visit yet announced.
