ABBA: Super Troupers The Exhibition, The O2 - ★★★★ - Until August 31, 2020


Everything you ever wanted to know about ABBA! This is the comprehensive exhibition and a must-see for serious fans of the Swedish pop group. London's latest ongoing attraction traces the group's rise and follows their journey and growth album by album. From 1974 with their win at the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton ABBA's distinctive sound defined a generation and continues to delight audiences. Here, each of their eight albums is presented in a particular setting and we are given some wonderful insight into the band's creative processes. There is some never before displayed memorabilia, terrific photos and nostalgic film footage. You can even sit down and watch the Eurovision Song Contest Victory or get pictures beside a full-sized replica of the helicopter that was on the cover of "Arrival." A great audio guide comes with your ticket and it provides fascinating background and lots of information while helping to immerse us in the period. The exhibition all ends with the fans and the impact ABBA has had on their lives. Even if you don't qualify as a 'super fan', this exhibition is like ABBA's music – one can't resist being caught up in the atmosphere and the joyful fun of it all.
