We are thrilled to share the news that Anneli Drecker will be performing as support and singing backup with the band at a-ha’s upcoming UK shows in Manchester (25 March), London (26 March), Glasgow (28 March) and Birmingham (29 March).

As many of you will remember, Anneli toured with a-ha during the ‘Minor Earth Major Sky’ and ‘Lifelines’ era in 2000-2003:

“I can’t say how happy I am to be back on the road with a-ha! They are such a great band right now – all three of them are on fire and the backing band is amazing. Doing shows with a-ha really is special, the warmth and response from the audience is so strong even for me. And the best thing is that I’ve been listening to their music since I was very young, so singing these songs is almost second nature to me. This is going to be a blast!”

Here is a video of Anneli singing ‘I Wish I Cared’ with Morten at Vallhall in Oslo on 24 March 2001:
