Roundhouse Entertainment and Frontier Touring are excited to announce the return of pop icons a-ha for their first Australian tour in 34 years next February and March including Sirromet Wines, Mount Cotton on Sunday March 1. They’ll be joined by very special guest Rick Astley.
The Norwegian trio, who dominated pop charts worldwide during the ’80s, are celebrating the 35th anniversary of their hugely influential debut album Hunting High And Low and will be performing the classic album in full as well as other favourites from across their career. Selling more than 11 million copies worldwide, it includes the unforgettable Take On Me, which reached number one on the Australian charts, as well as follow-up hits The Sun Always Shines On TV, Train Of Thought and the title track.
a-ha – singer Morten Harket, keyboardist Mags Furuholmen and guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy – have sold more than 55 million albums and remain one of the UK and Europe’s most loved pop bands, regularly playing stadiums and festivals. However, they have not ventured to Australian shores since 1986.
“Australia was the country we played our first ever live concerts and was our first brush with worldwide fame. It was a thrilling adventure to be there on the opposite side of the world and it’s a thrill to return in 2020 – finally we will be back where it all started!”
Joining a-ha to make this one poptastic event not to be missed is another superstar who dominated the ’80s, Rick Astley.
The a day on the green events will also feature synth-pop stars Pseudo Echo and I Know Leopard.
Tickets go on sale Friday July 26 from Ticketmaster at 11.00am AEST.
