a-ha doing mini-concert in Oslo


a-ha will headline the annual VG-lista Topp 20 summer show in Oslo on 19 June. Other artists performing include Alexander Rybak, Lene Marlin, BigBang and Aqua.

“We are especially proud to get a visit from a-ha, who will do their own mini-concert as part of the VG-chart show. We are also expecting many visitors from abroad when the biggest Norwegian band ever enters the stage”, Thomas Christiansen from VG says.

The show, which is held outdoors at Rådhusplassen (City Hall Square), always draws a big crowd. “Featuring the best package of artists ever, we’re ready to match the audience record of 100.000 people from 2006”, Christiansen says.

It is not known if a-ha will play live or just use playback, as Morten did when he performed on the show in 2008.

The whole show is broadcast live on NRK1 on 19 June, and is repeated on the same channel the following day. The show is also usually broadcast live on NRK’s web-TV and P3 radio.

It has also been announced that the new album will now be released one week earlier than planned in Germany. The new release date is 12 June.

The UK, however, will get the album one week later than what the recent press release stated. The new UK release date is 20 July, while the single is released on 13 July. An updated overview of all release dates can be found on a-ha.com.
