Melbourne Ushers in ABBA World
Thirty-three years after their last concert in the country, ABBA is making their way to Australia again—in an exhibition, at any rate. Melbourne will open ABBA World this weekend, an exhibition that premiered in London set to be permanently situated in Sweden after the rest of its world tour.
Visitors to the exhibition can relive their memories of the Swedish superstars in 25 different rooms packed with the band members' original clothes and gold records, as well as photographs of the group. But the exhibition is interactive as well: visitors can dance with a hologram of the singers and participate in one of their music videos.
The mayor of Melbourne seems to be quite the big fan, too; rumor has it that he plans to name a square after the Swedish group.
