Following on from Abba – Voyage looks like Liverpool planning a Beatles show in similar vein with £2m funding secured:

 

Beatles could perform again in Liverpool hologram show after £2m Budget 2021 windfall (msn.com)

 

Difference is how they create the holograms given Abba turned up in person

 

Edit: or even mooted – sorry if that can be updated

ABBA are doing an avatar tour in London next year where ticket prices are from £181. I don’t get why anyone would want to pay such a high amount to see computer images dancing to the sound of a live band. 
So I’ll pass (if it ever happens).
By the time it happens (if it ever does and I doubt it willdue to licensing reasons for one) I’ll be too old to want to go and be around people in such an environment anyway.

I think standard ticket prices when initially announced were £24, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s premium ticket for a mug, t-shirt, signed CD and programme in a VIP package…

Not sure if this is better or worse than a tribute band.

There is not, from the statements I have seen related to this project, and explore the reasons why it is unlikely over in the Beatles News thread (which is where I think this belongs as a subject), any suggestion that the proposed “immersive experience” will involve performing holograms, or holograms of any sort.

This is merely press speculation over what the “immersive experience” might be without any evidence to support the idea that holograms are part of what Liverpool has in mind. And a good reason to dismiss the idea of holograms is that, despite the project having been being explored since 2018, there is no talk of Apple and the Beatles being involved (without whom it couldn’t happen), and were Apple and the Beatles already involved in any capacity, the Government providing £2 million seed money to come up with a business plan would be unlikely, as the Government would not want to be seen helping to finance something that Apple and the Beatles are perfectly capable of funding themselves were it an idea they wanted to explore.
