a-ha TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA FOR ANNIVERSARY SHOWS:
It sounds like a-ha will be having a world tour in the next year in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of a-ha's first Number 1 hit, 'Take On Me'. Their album "Hunting High And Low" will be reissued, following info from their website: Magne said in an interview with BBC News, "For the anniversary, we want to do something creative and revisit material in a different way and make something special for the fans." Although the following timeframes and countries are not 100% confirmed, we understand this is the general tour schedule for 2010.
* In November 2009, the European tour will be extended. The band will also add a show in Tokyo, Japan.
* January will bring a-ha back to Australia for the first time since their first world tour, which opened in Perth, Australia on June 3, 1986.
* Fans in South America, Canada and the United States can look forward to some concerts in March.
* In May and June, a-ha will return to Europe and do some festivals.
The band probably played a few dates in Canada back in the 80's but they never returned after that from what I'm aware of. They are one band that I like that I've never seen live, looks like that will change soon!
