The Norwegian band announced they will make a final world tour in 2010 to end up their music career. The last concert will take place in Oslo on December the 4th.
In 2006 the band received a ’ Q Inspiration Award’ in honor of their lasting musical influence.With the current album ’ Foot of The Mountain’ enjoying both commercial success and critical acclaim, A-ha has decided to call it a day.As a consequence, A-ha had decided not be releasing any further albums in the future.
’ We’ ve literally lived the ultimate boy’ s adventure tale, through a longer, more rewarding career than anyone could hope for.” Said the group members.
The group told they would get more involved in humanitarian work, politics, or similar areas in addition to some volunteer works in the field of art and music. The band members noted they 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”, added they.
2010 marks the 25-year anniversary of A-ha’ s multi-platinum debut album ’ Hunting High & Low’ and the debut single ’ Take On Me’ which with the aid of a truly unforgettable video went on to become a number 1 in 27 countries worldwide, including USA.
The band will make a final world tour in 2010 to end their collaboration on a high note.
