Little Boots assures us that “no one will be disappointed” by the ‘ABBA Voyage’ setlist. 

The singer-songwriter, aka Victoria Hesketh, will play keyboards/synthesizers and provide backing vocals as part of the show’s 10-piece live band, also starring Klaxons guitarist James Righton, and she’s offered a teaser of the “revolutionary project”.

Insisting the group’s selections will “please everybody,” she tells the launch issue of Retro Pop: “There are two songs that are some of my absolute favourites that I wouldn’t expect them to include, but they are, so that’s really exciting! 

“They definitely are going to tick all the ‘ABBA Gold’ boxes as well, so I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.”

Two songs from the ‘Voyage’ album – I Still Have Faith in You and Don’t Shut Me Down – have been confirmed for the gigs and James previously revealed four of the songs rehearsed by the band which will likely make the set: Voulez-Vous, Knowing Me, Knowing You, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) and Eagle.

Few more details of the setlist have been confirmed, however Victoria admitted there’s one omission she “had a big gripe with” – but wouldn’t name the track in question. 

However, with rehearsals well underway she promises the live band sounds “magic”, ahead of the show’s opening night on May 27. 

“Everyone had goosebumps,” recalls Victoria of the first group session. “Straight off the bat, it was first thing in the morning and it was absolutely incredible…

“There was no doubt in my mind after the audition – I had to do it.”

In addition to playing with ABBA, the singer-songwriter will also release her fourth Little Boots album in spring 2022.
