    It has to be seen to be believed
    Encouraged by younger family to see this spectacular show as we both enjoy the ABBA songs. It was an amazing evening as we sat awestruck by the sounds, the lighting and the sheer excitement of the "voyage", There is no doubt that the producers have assembled one of the finest group of musicians to simulate the ABBA "sound" so successfully. We felt that the live music was absolutely intrinsic to the overall performance. Simply one of the very best if not THE best, evenings entertainment that I have enjoyed over many years of theatre and concerts in the UK.

    Impressed on every level
    Did not know what to expect going in but we were amazed by the spectacle on display. It was such a unique experience that was part magic show part concert. It captivated us on every level. The holograms were incredibly realistic and the technology at work here was able to seamlessly blend reality and illusion. The venue itself was in a great location across the road from the pudding lane tube station. The bar was well staffed and service prompt with reasonable prices for London.

    Pricey but superb entertainment
    We booked our visit several months ago to get a price nearer what we were prepared to pay. It is a superb spectacle and a great way to spend a couple of hours. It's just a shame that it was only 90 minutes long. It could easily have been stretched to 2 hours The Abbatars looked very impressive from our seats which were in block K (right-hand side looking at the stage) and with the big screens on either side it did feel like a proper gig for most of the show. We all came away happy 😁 so whats not to like

    Best night of my life!!!
    This was the most incredible experience! I wish I could go every night of the week. Yes I am a hardcore 70’s baby Abba fan but this just blew me away. Don’t want to give too much away but trust me, if you love Abba, you will absolutely love this! Personally I recommend the dance floor because who can sit down to an Abba song right?!

    ABBA Voyage & Oceanbird Lounge
    Wow, wow, wow, this show is amazing. The atmosphere was so exciting and the whole experience was incredible. We had seats in Block H, second row so our view was perfect. It's quite difficult to sit still when an ABBA song is being sung but we were able to get up and dance but obviously aware that it can be annoying for people sat behind. (We only danced to one track!) Lots of swaying and arm waving of course. The technology behind the production of this show is jaw dropping. It really does look like ABBA are there in person. The live band and backing singers on stage are also fantastic. Photography/videography during the concert is strictly prohibited. Before we went, I tried to find reviews on the Oceanbird Lounge experience but as I could not find much about it, I'm going to write about it here as it really is worth adding to your ticket. Upon arrival, we were checked in via our phones for both the lounge and the concert. Our tickets were via Ticketmaster so just make sure you have all your tickets in the latest version of the app. We were then given wristbands and went through security to get into the Arena. The Oceanbird Lounge is amazing and such a lovely place to relax for 1.75 hrs before the show. (It opens at 6.00 pm.) Nice comfy seating, funky decor, poseur tables etc. All of the food and drink in the lounge is included in the cost of the ticket. Drinks available were beer, wine, prosecco and 3 different cocktails. We were also able to take a drink into the concert with us. Upon leaving the lounge, we were given lanyards and also a bottle of water. We were surprised that after the concert we were able to go back into the lounge where drinks were once again available. It was also a good place to wait for the crowds to die down a little and arrange pick up etc. The buffet style food was amazing and I have included photos in this review. Everything was so tasty and in nice neat portion sizes. Waiters and waitresses also bought round freshly cooked items i.e. beef sliders, mini hot dogs etc. When you finished a drink, a member of staff swiftly replaced it with another one. All in all, we had a wonderful, fun evening and I thoroughly recommend both the show and the lounge experience.

    Spectacular and worth seeing
    Sensational show! Absolutely loved every second of it. The sound was amazing, incredibly loud and meant that you could sing along at full volume without disturbing your neighbour! A fully immersive light show is all part of the experience and the avatars are incredible. Thoroughly recommended.

    Excellent I will go again
    I cried. The experience will change the way that you view concerts in my opinion.I took my niece she was a bit young but I had heard it was going on tour and didn’t want to miss it! There is limited food/snacks drinks for children but I guess it’s more for older children 8 plus. Yes I know it’s not real but it’s the closet you will ever get- the band/singers very good. If you love ABBA you need to go. Venue well thought out, no photos as I didn’t want to be thrown out.

    Great experience, but....
    This was a great experience; weird how realistic it looks. Odd that this is how our kids will watch the legends of today! My only criticism was the few songs where the cartoon footage are used, and the video footage of Abba. If the production team had gone all-out and had the abbatars perform all of these songs then it would be flawless. I look forward to a follow-up version where a virtual Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Stellan Skärsgard perform their songs from the film!

    Astonishing Experience!!
    This shown is absolutely out of this world !! Amazing! Fantastic, fabulous and such a feel good show ! You know all the songs so lovely to sing along too but the lighting show is something else . So realistic as well !! Don’t try and take any pics on there or video though as they will tell You off straight away . Very eagle eyes in there !! You just have to experience it there and then which is a shame really as hard to tell People exactly how incredible it is ! Nevermind .

Visually the Abba voyage show is incredible, a treat for the eyes. Our Journey began Stratford Westfield car park B. After eventually finding a space we walked through Westfield to Stratford station to catch DLR (platform 4) one stop to Pudding Mill Lane station. We could have walked but it was cold and wet and takes about 25min, DLR was the easy option! As you walk out of the station the Arena is right there, entrance A to the right entrance B to the left. We were there about an hour before the show started and decided to go in as it was not too busy and at that point the queues were not too long. Security search passed, wristband attached, we were in. It was pretty busy in the foyer with queues at the all the bars and Merchandice stalls, but after a little exploring we found a bar with no queue at all!

We were on the dance floor which by the time the show started was busy but there was room to dance and go to the clean loos (if you have dance floor tickets the cloakroom is free but be prepared to queue at the end, although it is pretty quick!). One the lights went down we were treated to a visually stunning show, that had to be seen to believed (no photography or filming aloud, people being actively told to stop filming and in some cases delete footage). It really is incredible what they have done with the various projections, holograms, mirrors and lights, truly a technological feast for the eye full of moments of wonder, a true voyage!

The sound on the the other hand was adequate to poor, the mix of the live band (yes there is an actual live band) was at best ok but mostly a bit of mush with instruments missing from the mix. I work in live music industry, have done for 30 years so I do know what I’m talking about, and if I had been mixing “the band” I would have said that was far from perfect show. It seems the money has been spent on the visual production and the sound was an after thought. After all people go to SEE an band not HEAR an band!

Over all if you are an ABBA fan it is truly a magical event to see and worth every penny of you hard earned money. Just don’t expect too much from the sound!

After having booked this show almost a year ago, I thought the day would never come! I felt a mixture of excitement and tension, as although it’s had fantastic reviews you never know until you experience it yourself. As a fan of approximately 45 years (I was lucky enough to see them ‘live’ in 1979) it didn’t disappoint. Amazing lights, costumes, the fabulous music, just everything! It’s so realistic, the costumes shimmer, the hair swishes. I felt that the Avatars of Benny and Frida were spot on, Agnetha and Bjorn not quite as good. A very minor criticism of a flawless show. We were seated in block K. I couldn’t have stood up for 90 minutes and the dance floor looked very crowded. Just before the show started, two very drunk women arrived, swearing loudly and proceeded to talk over a few songs, which was a bit distracting. Why go to a wonderful show like this and get in that state and ruin the experience for others? Totally selfish. We met some lovely people from Birmingham who had come dressed as the group, they got lots of cheers and posed for many photos. Great fun. Prior to the concert we went to the Snoozebox opposite, reasonably priced drinks though we didn’t have food. The souvenir stall in the venue was crowded, I’m going to order online as I didn’t want to carry a bag around at the show. I’ll be booking to go again, it was completely mind blowing!

Personally I found the entire ‘show’ a bit weird. It is clever, no doubt about that. The lightshows & lasers are very good. However the concept of seeing a band who are still alive (and possibly sitting at home raking in shed loads of money from this without actually having to perform!) I thought it took the biscuit! It’s a cinematic experience with a brief live section from a band that are nothing like Abba! The cartoon section was beyond strange and gave me motion sickness. I am truly worried and a little bit frightened if this is the future of music concerts. I really hope not. There was Zero atmosphere (especially in the seated section where nobody moved!) I was on the dance floor, surrounded by tanked up people clapping computer images, singing, dancing and cheering as if they were the real thing! Security constantly staring and scrutinising your every action, waiting to pounce if u put your hand in your bag as they’re so concerned you might dare to get your phone out. I briefly took my shoes off as my feet were aching, having been standing for an hour and half & immediately was approached by security insisting I put my shoe back on! The holograms voices sounded squeaky and speeded up. The best part was ‘Waterloo’ which was just a large projector/video of their 1974 Eurovision song, so understandably not the best quality, which is fine but I could’ve definitely watched that at home! Dancing queen was great, but that song is usually great no matter where you are! I found the computer imagery/avatars just a step too far & really weird. Felt like I was in a strange virtual reality computer game! This surely can never replace live music. Personally I would’ve been happy to pay £25-£30 for this iMax style abba cinema screening experience. I felt ripped off for my ticket price & wouldn’t go again. I’d definitely rather spend my money on a west end show or a music concert with real humans, not holograms!

Attended the show at 7.45pm on Saturday 17th December 2023. My fiancee and I were on Row L in Block D (or J, if you look at the ticket - the block numbers are a little confusing).

The show was just under two hours in length. The first half of the show was wonderful. As a fan of Abba for four decades and more, I was lost in the music and lights and imagery, singing along and just drinking in the atmosphere of the packed arena. Honestly I could not recommend it too strongly.

About halfway through the show, there was a non-Abba variant of "Does Your Mother Know" performed as part of the electronic show by their local orchestra and backing singers, and that was not very interesting, but it only lasted a few minutes. Then there was a cartoon-style set of images to accompany the track "Eagle", which was not as good as watching Abba perform would have been (they repeated this approach with "Voulez Vous" later, and it equally was less good). The newer songs (Dont Shut Me Down and I Still Have Faith In You) were wonderful. And the closing sequence with Waterloo from 1974, and the group as they look now, was touching.

We loved it, basically.

There would be a few constructive criticisms I would make. The concessions outside were pricey. The chairs in the auditorium were a little constricting and not particularly comfortable. But the main one was the behaviour of a minority of other fans. For context, there is an area for people who want to buy tickets if they want to dance. There are areas with booths for groups who want to pay a little more who want to be able to sit and/or dance. And there there the auditorium rows of seats, for people who want to sit. Of course, this last type of seat requires people to actually.. sit. However, a few very selfish individuals decide to stand infront of their seats and dance there. This sounds fine, except it completely blocks the view of those in the seats behind them. Not everyone can stand for 2 hours, and besides, they have paid for seats. We had a couple of people who decided to do this infront of us, and blocking our view some of the time did impact our enjoyment of what is mostly a visual experience.

The arena need to enforce that folks who buy seats in the seated areas actually do remain seated, or they should be asked to leave.

If you love a bit of ABBA, then you need to see this. The quality of the show was amazing.
The stadium was great, everybody got in and out swiftly, with attentive and really cheery staff. Strangely it smelled like an IKEA -all new wood 😀
Seating was great, we were in block F, with plenty of legroom and fairly decent sized seats, even for a very plus sized person like me. As the stadium isn't very big, I think you would be fine wherever you were sat. There is a dance floor, but it, in my opinion was pricey just so you could dance. It was packed out like a nightclub dance floor. I was pleased we picked the seated option.
As for the show.....wow! The Àbbatars were fantastic as was the whole lighting aspect of the show, I felt like a kid at Christmas.
It's weird because everyone is cheering them as you would at a live gig, only they're not actually there. My brain, couldn't compute that bit!
The song choices were great and the attention to detail on their costumes etc was just mind blowing.
There was a small issue with an inconsiderate party behind us who were blocking the view of a disabled person behind them as they kept standing, but the staff dealt with it quickly, and the party left.
Getting there needs a bit of thought though, especially if you are with anyone who struggles with their mobility because it's in the middle of an undeveloped part of the Olympic Park.

We travelled by train from Birmingham New Street to Euston and got a black cab from the taxi rank direct there for £37. Well worth it if you are in a party that fills the cab.
On the way back we decided to walk to Stratford Station, as the Pudding Mill LDR station (right opposite the stadium) was temp closed - it was (according to Google and the ABBA website, about a 25 min walk, but my mom was using a walking stick due to a knee issue, and we had to stop 3 or 4 times, it was also a very hot sunny day, and there was very limited shade.
We then caught the central line to Tottenham Court and Northern line to euston.which seemed to take forever and again, was roasting....before catching the train back to Birmingham new street.

This is an expensive experience and we were very very unlucky to be at the recent show with an over 1 hour “technical isssue” half way during the event. This break killed the vibe and the show completely. Will anyone get any refund/new tickets as our night was ruined - what do you think!!!!! Come on Abba you are rich enough to do the right thing and offer some sort of recompense to the 3000 unlucky fans ☹️

My friends and I booked this for our friends birthday.

Tickets aren’t cheap, be warned. We booked a few months in advance so got them for around £60-£70 each.

We found getting into the venue fairly easy with queues moving quite quickly. Inside was kind of like a Christmas market vibe with bars and food offerings. The food is expensive and not amazing as to be expected with these places, but they did have a good selection, including vegan food.

The cloakroom was free to customers who were standing which is a nice touch, there was a queue though which meant we almost missed the start of the show.

The way we entered the stadium took us right to the front of the stage, which would normally be great but for this show it’s actually more beneficial to be towards the back for full effect.

The show was excellent, all the classics played and it’s a good vibe with everyone dancing. The production and lighting are fantastic and definitely worth going to even if you’re not a huge ABBA fan!

My only downer was on the way out, there isn’t really a system and the cloakroom, exit etc are all very close so it got very squashed and uncomfortable.

Otherwise, an excellent night out!

Venue is amazing, with travel to and from being easy despite numbers attending. The show is spectacular, surreal, virtual and thrilling in equal measure .. …the Ultimate ABBA experience!
Merchandise is good quality and affordable (tee shirts £30)
A lot of people standing during the show blocking the view of others. Also concert goers travelling in and out with drinks, spilling them on seated guests was a real issue. No intervention from venue stewards.
The performance is only 90 minutes, so please close the bar for the duration!
Food offerings are poor. Food was a long wait after ordering and was cold on presentation.

We booked tickets for £150 each, in Block H, Row D. Honestly the arena is not huge and you’ll get a great view wherever you are, so just pay as little as you can.

It’s a great show, the lighting and holograms are simply spell binding.

Not sure why they put cartoon piece on in the middle, would be better with holograms the whole time.

Band and backing singers are amazing. It is very very loud!

We met up with family to celebrate a milestone Birthday. We are all huge music lovers and ABBA fans. Getting to and from the Arena was easy on foot as we were staying close by. We were staying in the Hyatt Regency at Westfield, and others were staying at The Holiday Inn Express. We went to dinner prior to the show, so I can’t comment on the concessions. We walked to the venue through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park and the venue was sign posted very well. The queue went down fast to get in and all the staff/ security were great and friendly. People were dressed up in there 70’s inspired ABBA gear and there were a lot of sequins, including myself. We had seated tickets, and the view was great. I would have loved to be on the dance floor, but the group bought the tickets and opted for seating due to some family members not wanting to stand for 90 minutes.
When the show starts it plays with your brain a bit. The ABBAtars are very lifelike, however you know that they aren’t real and it feels a bit creepy. A few songs in and your brain believes they are real. It is very well executed. I couldn’t see a bad seat in the smaller intimate arena, we were to the left of the stage. There were also live musicians which made it feel like a concert. Some others have complained about the song choices, but lets face it, with their catalogue of songs, it would be hard to choose which ones. Maybe in different nights the songs change???
The thing I loved was that there were no phones blocking the stage. Recording and photography is not allowed and is strictly enforced. We saw people being removed. It is announced very clearly before the show that this was the case. It made for a full on experience like it used to be before phones got in the way.
All in all I would recommend this, for the music and the experience of being immersed in the technology that put it together. It is truly a great experience. Get dressed up and go back in time with the music.
