a-ha - Sunday 17th June
The iconic Norwegian trio a-ha are set to perform at Mowden Park, Darlington on Sunday 17 June as part of their 2018 Summer Electric Tour, performing some of their biggest hits.
a-ha are globally one of the most iconic pop bands to hail from the 1980s. The multi-Platinum selling Norwegian trio are composed of lead vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Pal WaaktaarSavoy and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen. Widely regarded as true pioneers of both music and video technology to arise during the mid-80s, they are perhaps best known for their huge and instantly recognisable hit Take on Me which made Number One internationally, matched by their single The Sun Always Shines on TV – both of which were fruit of their best-selling debut album Hunting High and Low, released in 1985. The trio have gone on to release ten studio and two live albums plus their latest highly acclaimed MTV Unplugged album.
Loyal MTV fans have year on year voted Take on Me in their ‘Top 10 Best Music Videos’.
The a-ha 2018 Summer Electric Tour will see the pop idols do what they do best, performing their hearts out to highly appreciative fans, and by contrast to the latest acoustic album, will see them bring a full electric set to carefully selected UK venues - promising their biggest hits and of course new material. The trio will be joined by a full new band including a string section for what is set to be a stellar summer evening playlist.
Morten Harket said “We do feel a close affinity to the UK and our fans there. We have also always seen fans travel to our shows to and within the UK and welcome all. It’s exciting to play outdoors and take our music to locations which are not traditional Arena touring places. As ever we always want to do things in a new way, to keep things exciting for our fans. We are very much looking forward to playing in Darlington in June.”
