a-ha Playing the U.S. For The First Time in 20 Years on their Farewell Tour

a-ha returned to North America last week to kick off 7 shows, before heading back to Europe for the final leg of their year-long world-wide Farewell Tour. The band will perform together for the very last time in Oslo on 4 December 2010.

Following a fantastic international career spanning 25 years and over 35 million albums sold, a-ha's Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy will perform their final shows together exactly 25 years after the release of the band's multi-platinum debut album Hunting High & Low and debut single "Take On Me", which reached number 1 in 27 countries including the USA. Since that time, "Take On Me" has been played 3 million times on American radio… the equivalent of 375 times a day for 22 years!

The band would like to thank their fans and everyone who has contributed to their amazing journey and say, "We've literally lived the ultimate boy's adventure tale, through a longer, more rewarding career than anyone could hope for. Doing this now will give us a chance to get more involved in other meaningful aspects of life, be it humanitarian work, politics, or whatever else – and of course through new constellations in the field of art and music. We are retiring as a band, not as individuals. Change is always difficult and it is easy to get set in one's ways. Now it is time to move on."
