VG show / iTunes Festival / Pro7 special

a-ha on stage in Oslo

a-ha performed four songs live at the outdoor VG chart show in Oslo last night. They were struggling with the sound, especially on “Foot Of The Mountain”, but that’s what can happen when you have to share the stage with so many other acts.

If you didn’t watch the live webcast, the songs are now up on YouTube:
1. The Sun Always Shines On TV
2. Riding The Crest
3. Foot Of The Mountain
4. Take On Me

VG Nett has a video interview with Paul and Morten from the soundcheck on Thursday.


Universal UK has announced that a-ha will be performing live at the London iTunes Festival on 24 July. The event takes place at the Roundhouse in Camden, and they will be supported by German band Reamonn.
Details on how to win tickets for this event can be found on

The TV-special is now available in two parts on YouTube:
  Part 1     Part 2
