Electric Summer tour 2018

In June 2018, just a few months after their MTV Unplugged Tour, a-ha went back on the road – but this time fully electric. The 31-date summer tour included a number of unique locations the band had seldom or never visited before. All the concerts were held outdoors, except for the shows in Cork, Freiburg and Bochum.

Apart from Lars Horntveth (who had other commitments), the backing band was the same as on the unplugged tour: Karl Oluf Wennerberg (drums), Even Ormestad (bass), Morten Qvenild (piano/keyboards), Madeleine Ossum (violin/backing vocals), Tove Margrethe Erikstad (cello/backing vocals) and Emilie Heldal Lidsheim (viola/backing vocals). Erik Ljunggren was also involved, but not on stage this time.

The following 19 songs were performed during the tour: Cry Wolf, The Blood That Moves The Body, Minor Earth Major Sky (demo version), Lifelines, The Weight of the Wind, Crying in the Rain, Foot of the Mountain, Analogue, Train of Thought (demo version), Stay on These Roads, This is Our Home, Sycamore Leaves, Manhattan Skyline, Hunting High and Low, I’ve Been Losing You, The Sun Always Shines on TV, Scoundrel Days, The Living Daylights, Take on Me.
