Hire Abba BandIconic pop band ABBA’s wax figures were today revealed at Madame Tussauds London, where they will take up a short term residency in the attraction’s interactive Music Zone.

The new wax figures were captured in the unique style from their 1975 video for ‘SOS’. Group members Agnetha and Anni-Frid wear replicas of their striking yellow and blue feline themed mini-dresses teamed with pristine white knee-high leather boots. Benny and Björn wear white seventies outfits encrusted with diamantes and sequins, finished off with flares and platform boots.

The figures were revealed in front of a colourful disco inspired backdrop and are positioned near other music legends from Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga.

“We are delighted to welcome ABBA to Madame Tussauds London,” commented Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London. “They are such an iconic pop group who inspired both the music and fashion industries around the world. They make a wonderfully flamboyant addition to the interactive Music Zone here and we know guests are going to love posing alongside them in all their 70s white satin glory.”

The group cost £600,000 to create and took a dedicated team of sculptors and hair and colour artists four months to create.

The figures will take up residence in the London attraction before going on a world tour including Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam and Blackpool.
