Jimmy Page recently revealed that Led Zeppelin was approached to create a hologram of the band similar to what ABBA are doing with their digital concert ABBA Voyage.

Per The Guardian“Well before there was talk of the Swedish pop group’s Voyage concert, the rock band was asked to do ‘that sort of thing’, Page told an audience at the Hay [film] festival [in Wales.] However, the musician and music producer said that he and his two surviving bandmates, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, couldn’t agree, so the project ‘didn’t really get moving.’ Page said he didn’t think a virtual tour would work for his former band the Yardbirds, but indicated that he thought it might for Led Zeppelin.”

ABBA Voyage is based in London in the specially designed ABBA Arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Per the concert’s website, “Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid have created the kind of concert they always wanted, performing for their fans at their very best: as digital versions of themselves backed by today’s finest musicians. Blurring the lines between the physical and digital, see the magic of ABBA brought to life using the latest in motion capture technology. It’s the greatest ABBA performance the world has never seen. Until now.”

A preview of ABBA Voyage can be viewed below with full details on the concert experience available at ABBAvoyage.com.
