Abba’s Björn to open Abba themed Restaurant to London
ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus will be bringing his MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY experience to London’s O2 in spring next year.
According to The Mirror, it will be “an immersive dining experience” and the restaurant will be a recreation of a taverna on the island of Skopelos, mirroring the setting of the first Mamma Mia! film.
Abba hits will be played live whilst diners are served Mediterranean cuisine during the experience. You can see the trailer for the event below:
A similar experience has been on offer in Stockholm since 2016 and has sold out shows there for three consecutive years.
Speaking about the new London venture, Björn said:
“We have long admired The O2 and the huge entertainment success it has become…we believe bringing MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY to The O2 will add to this already vibrant cultural destination and provide the perfect location for our exciting new show.”
Earlier this year we reported on how Abba would be releasing new songs for the first time in 35 years.
“And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!”
“It resulted in two new songs, and one of them ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ will be performed in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December. We have may come of age, but the song is new, and it feels good.”
The band also shared photos from their recent recording sessions.
Asked about the direction of ABBA’s new material, Benny Andersson said:
“One of the songs is like we would’ve written it [for] today. The other, we could’ve written in 1972.”
Tickets for MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY go on sale this autumn and are available here.
