While Taylor Swift’s discography-spanning Eras Tour and Beyoncé’s ballroom blitz Renaissance Tour made headlines all summer long for their record-breaking earnings, there’s another big-ticket music show that’s been making some serious *ahem* money, money, money…
Over a year into its run, Swedish pop legends ABBA’s London residency show ABBA Voyage is still selling out arenas and raking in a whopping $2 million a week—and the band’s not even stepping foot on stage!
And that’s because Voyage is a unique virtual concert experience, featuring Agnetha, Björn, Benny, and Anni-Frid partying like it’s 1979. That is to say, the septuagenarian queer icons are using motion-capture digital avatars and other cutting-edge technology to appear and perform like they did all those decades ago.
