But didn't they just RECORD A WHOLE NEW ALBUM with their 2021 voices?! They presumably had MONTHS to record endless takes of live performances of their hits to then edit into something decent that could pass off as "as live".

But why would they want to present themselves as they were in the 1970s, but with vocals recorded while they are in their 70s?

The whole point is that it isn't Abba now.

Well their dancing is 2021 dancing isn't it? They were motion-captured for that. If they can achieve the effect that an 80 year old lady is twirling to Voulez-Vous as if she was 35, then surely they can make her SOUND 35.

Sorry, I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, I'm just UPSET as all the PUBLICITY was STARTING TO GET ME until I found that out.

No, a huge proportion of the dancing isn't them, either.

I believe they got the members of ABBA to perform the songs, and then got sprightly young things to do those same moves, so you have the SPIRIT of the members of ABBA but without the creakiness.

I don't know why people would want to listen to a pre-recorded 'live' vocal at a show they know isn't live TBH.

:D Oh they’re VERY GOOD AREN’T THEY

Always dished it up with a SNEER I felt

I saw them LIVE FROM A CAR PARK at Manchester Pride about ten years ago and I don't think the memory of that can honestly compare with this technical wizardry which may or may not contain traces of Agnetha.
