Breakout Events is excited to announce the South African tour dates for legendary band a-ha. This will be the first time since 1994 that the band is visiting South Africa!
a-ha will bring their “a-ha play Hunting High And Low live” tour to and to Johannesburg on 15 February 2020 at Marks Park, Emmarentia.
a-ha have always set themselves challenges. In 2018, their MTV Unplugged tour proved that their songs could be given new settings and remain as alive and as impactful as ever.
Now, pushing even further, they are announcing that their a-ha play Hunting High And Low live tour will be different from anything they have previously undertaken.
Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy will be performing new and old, familiar and less-familiar songs, as well as the ten songs off their 1985 debut album Hunting High And Low in the running order of the original release.
Back in October 2010, a-ha had played the whole of Hunting High And Low just twice, first at Oslo’s Konserthus and then at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Now, from France to Poland and from Germany to South Africa, audiences will have the unique chance to experience a-ha revisiting their first album while staying faithful to its spirit.
Together, Hunting High And Low’s ten songs are more than a debut album. “Take On Me”, “Train Of Thought”, “Hunting High And Low”, “The Blue Sky”, “Living A Boy’s Adventure Tale”, “The Sun Always Shines On T.V.”, “And You Tell Me”, “Love Is Reason”, “Dream Myself Alive” and “Here I Stand And Face The Rain” are ten songs which captured a-ha’s heart and soul. And the hearts and souls of fans worldwide too.
The tour is
timed to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of the original version
of “Take On Me” – issued in the UK on 19 October 1984 to reputed sales of just
300 copies. The re-recorded “Take On Me” was released in Britain during April
1985 to little fanfare, and in America that May where it hit big after its
striking promotional video was seen on TV. It was reissued in the UK that
September and, finally, the British hit came. The Hunting High And Low
album were on sale in America in June 1985, and in the UK in October 1985.
