VideoFriday – Ending on a High Note

Events, Nightlife, What's New — By Anne-Sophie Redisch on August 20, 2010 at 9:00 pm

Anyone old enough to remember the song Take On Me by Norwegian band a-ha? The iconic video was groundbreaking, the song sold 1.5 million copies during the first week and topped the charts in the UK and the USA.

After 25 years, Morten, Magne and Pål are calling it a day. This weekend, the home leg of a-ha’s farewell tour, Ending on a High Note begins in Oslo. The tour began in Argentina and will cover 4 continents and 15 countries. After criss-crossing all over Europe, the tour – and a-ha – will end with one more concert in Oslo on 4 December (sorry, folks, all sold out).

25 years later, here’s the last chance to enjoy Morten Harket’s fantastic voice – their latest single Butterfly.
