Iconic music sensation ABBA officially motivated their fans into a frenzy earlier this morning.  After a 38-year hiatus, the band launched their new album, Voyage leading with singles “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” via a series of spectacular global moments featuring Sydney, in keeping with their unprecedented popularity and legendary status. 

Striking avatars of Agnetha, Björn, Benny, and Anni-Frid illuminated the Pylons of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge accompanied by a dazzling light display across the Bridge arch.  

Sydney joined eight other cities around the world – Tokyo, London, New York, Stockholm, Rio, Reykjavik, Berlin, Cape Town – in celebrating the much-anticipated album with vision of the Sydney Harbour Bridge featured in a livestream on ABBA’s official YouTube Channel. 

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres described the Sydney Harbour Bridge tribute as fitting recognition of ABBA as one of the world’s most enduring bands. 

“Sydney is the only city in Australia to be included in the event with other great cities around the world, positioning us as Australia’s only truly global city and heart of the creative industries. Vision of the Sydney Harbour Bridge will be beamed around the world to a massive audience, reminding our friends overseas to keep Sydney and NSW top-of-mind as a must-visit destination for when international borders re-open". 

For more than four-decades, Sydney has held a special place in ABBA’s hearts since they visited in 1977 on their first and only tour of Australia. 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled for Sydney to be part of our global album launch. Sydney has always been a special city to us and we have wonderful memories of the time we spent performing in Australia, said ABBA.

Adam Ireland, General Manager, BRING said; “When we heard of the imminent release of ABBA Voyage and unwrapped stories of the band’s history with Sydney, we knew there was no better fit than DNSW, and no better place than our wonderous harbourside. Streaming data backed up our vision, showing that Sydney has the fourth highest volume of streams for ABBA, exceeding global benchmarks.” 

Significant locations included in ABBA’s visit to Sydney in 1977, during their first and only tour of Australia, included: 

  • Opening the tour with a performance at the former Sydney Showground, Moore Park on 3 March 1977 to an audience of 20,000 people. All four members of the band recall this concert as the most memorable of their career. Sydney Showground is now located at Sydney Olympic Park and hosts hundreds of world-class events each year.
