ABBA‘s reunion album Voyage arrives Friday, but the Swedish pop icons have already dropped the first trailer for their ABBA Voyage concert production, which launches next year at a purpose-built theater in London.

In the brief trailer, you can see digital “avatars” of Bjorn, Benny, Anni-Frid and Agnetha, looking as they did in the ’70s, performing on stage under pyramid-shaped lights.  It’s set to the group’s 1978 single, “Summer Night City.”

The avatars were created by having the real members of ABBA perform for hours while wearing motion-capture suits.  In addition to the avatars and a light show, the concert production also features a ten-piece live band.

More tickets have also been released for sale; you can now buy them for shows through December of 2022.
