Summer concert announced for Copenhagen

a-ha will bring their Electric Summer Tour to Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens amusement park on Friday, 27 July. This will be the first a-ha concert in Denmark since 2004, when they played at the Rock Under Broen Festival in Middelfart.

It is also the 30th concert to be announced on the Electric Summer Tour so far.

Paying visitors to Tivoli Gardens will have free entrance to the concert, but Inner Circle tickets near the stage will cost extra. The Inner Circle tickets go on sale for season card holders on Thursday 25 January, and for everyone else on Friday 26 January via billettlugen.dk.
