"The sound of this band will give you goosebumps."

She wrote that she will be playing keyboards and providing backing vocals on stage during the Abba Voyage shows, which will take place in a specially-constructed 3,000-capacity arena at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London.

ABBA's members won't be appearing in person, but rather through digital 'avatars', and will be accompanied by a 10-piece live band in a custom-built arena, with tickets for the show going on sale today.

A new 10-song album will be released on November 5, ahead of the special live shows next May.
