a-ha to perform in Ålesund and Bodø next year

Two new festival dates on a-ha’s 2018 summer tour have now been announced, adding to the already known date at Kongsberg Jazzfestival on 6 July:

17 August 2018: Jugendfest, Ålesund, Norway
18 August 2018: Parkenfestivalen, Bodø, Norway

Jugendfest is held at Color Line Stadium, the same football stadium where a-ha played in August 2006, as part of the Analogue tour. Parkenfestivalen is held at the Rensås park, and this will be a-ha’s first ever concert in Bodø (Morten and Paul have both done solo concerts in Bodø).

Norwegian concerts in late summer

As previously reported, concert organizers in Bodø, Norway have been in contact with a-ha Network about getting a possible date on the Farewell Tour.

The concert would have been held as part of the Aspmyra Live mini-festival, but it seems that the plans didn’t work out.

As it stands now this won’t happen, unfortunately“, a-ha manager Harald Wiik tells local newspaper Avisa Nordland today.

According to the newspaper, a-ha will be doing concerts in Norway between August 20th and September 12th.

There was a weekend during that period when we could have arranged Aspmyra Live, but that wasn’t a good time for the band. Aspmyra Live is usually held in June, but it wasn’t possible for a-ha to come here [that month]“, Gøran Aamodt of the event company Tag Productions tells Avisa Nordland.

As for which Norwegian cities that will get a visit from a-ha in late summer, there have been rumours about both Stavanger and Bergen.
