The Take On Me hitmakers will take to the Dubai Opera stage for the first time in February 2020…

35 years after the release of their debut album, Norwegian pop trio a-ha are set to bring their Hunting High And Low tour to the UAE. The pop band, who enjoyed worldwide success during the 1980s will perform on February 11, 2020 at Dubai Opera.

Tickets will go on sale at 5pm on Tuesday July 2, priced from Dhs250.

Most famous for their classic hit, Take On Me, a-ha have sold more than 55 million albums worldwide, and remain one of Europe’s best loved pop bands from the 80s.

The tour will see a-ha play their 1985 debut album, Hunting High And Low in its entirety, as well as some new and older material.

a-ha, comprising of singer Morten Harket, keyboardist Magne Furuholmen and guitarist Pål Waaktaar-Savoy, have also scored global hits with James Bond theme tune The Living Daylights as well as Cry Wolf and I’ve Been Losing You.

“a-ha have been an incredible and inspirational band from the very beginning and with a string of already-sold-out arena shows across Europe they’re proving they have lost none of their appeal, I can’t wait to welcome them to Dubai Opera for one of their most intimate shows on this tour,” commented Jasper Hope of Dubai Opera.

Tickets are priced from Dhs250, although there will be a limited early bird offering with 20 per cent off VIP and Platinum tickets purchased before July 16.
