Legendary Norwegian band A-ha will be making their way to Cape Town’s shores on February 14, 2020 as part of their Hunting High and Low tour. The concert will be held at the Green Point A Track, where fans can enjoy their soulful sounds.

A-ha released their first album in 1984 titled ‘Hunting High and Low’. ‘Take On Me’ was their first single released from the album. The song only made it onto charts in the UK and US in 1985, after two separate versions of the song were released, and was the band’s only song to top the Billboard Hot 100.

Keyboardist Magne Furuholmen, vocalist Morten Harket and guitarist Pâl Waaktaar-Savoy made their tour debut in South Africa in 1994 which was a huge success. The concert left crowds wanting more, and 25 years later South African fans are finally getting what they wanted.

The band excitedly announced their 2020 tour to South Africa on Facebook:

Hits from their debut album will be on the set list for their concert here along with some new tracks. Fans can look forward to taking a nostalgic trip to the 80s, and are sure to remember the feeling of turning on the radio and hearing a-ha for the very first time.

Tickets range between R595 for general access and R895 for Golden Circle VIP, excluding fees.
