3Arena, Tuesday 29th October

a-ha will be performing their debut album Hunting High And Low live. Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy, have never been afraid of revisiting their collective past – the MTV Unplugged tour in early 2018 more-than demonstrated that their songs could be given new settings and remain as impactful as ever. But taking on a whole album – one so well known – and staying faithful to its spirit is audacious.

Of course, a toe was dipped in this water in October 2010 when the album was performed just twice: first at Oslo's Konserthus and then at London's Royal Albert Hall on the 25th anniversary of Take On Me entering the British charts. Now, though, a-ha are marking the 35th anniversary of the release of the original version of Take On Me – issued on October 19th, 1984 to reputed sales of just 300 copies – with a tour celebrating the single and the album which followed it.
