A-HA - Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar are back with an arena tour in November 2009 coming to Birmingham NIA on Monday 2nd, Manchester MEN Arena on Tuesday 3rd and London O2 Arena on Wednesday 4th.
The band last toured the UK in 2005 to over 60,000 fans in support of their return to the Top 10 with the single "Analogue" and the album of the same name. In the same year they played the Live 8 concert in Berlin, made history in Oslo with 120,000 turning up to their Frognerparken show and were awarded the prestigious "Q Magazine Inspiration" award at a star-packed London ceremony and had everyone from U2, Coldplay, Morrissey and Keane citing them as influences on their career.
"Analogue" also marked exactly 20 years since a-ha topped the Billboard Hot 100 and conquered the pop globe with "Take On Me", before setting out to show that was merely the top layer in a complex and sophisticated collective.
A-ha will release their ninth studio album later this year.
To see A-Ha perform tracks from their new album and a wealth of hits live:
Monday 2nd: Birmingham NIA
Tuesday 3rd: Manchester MEN Arena
Wednesday 4th: London The O2 Arena
