Final tour updates

We can now confirm that the ‘Ending on a High Note’ tour schedule is complete. No additional concerts will be added, and the shows listed on the Tour Page are the last chances to see a-ha in concert before they retire after the December 4 concert in Oslo.

Last night, the band played their last concert in Russia, at the St. Petersburg Ice Palace. On Monday, a-ha start the UK leg of the tour, and will play in ten cities in England, Scotland and Wales. As announced via Twitter, the support for all UK gigs is none other than Jimmy Gnecco – who also supported the band at some of the early fall European concerts.

Update 16 November:

There will be no support band for a-ha’s four concerts in Oslo on November 30 and December 2-4.

a-ha’s final concert on December 4 will be filmed for release on a live DVD. We do not have information yet about what other material could be on the DVD or the release date; further news will be posted here on a-ha.com when it is available.

Update 18 November:

Please note that the stage time for the Oslo concerts will be 8:30pm. Be sure to arrive with plenty of time so as not to miss part of the show!

    I can’t wait until Wedensday to see A-ha perform in Glasgow. I have waited a long time to see this great band perform live and I am travelling over from Ireland.
    To Morten, Magne and Paul, I want to thankyou for the great music you have left us your fans and I want to wish all the best for the future.
    You are a brilliant band and you will never be forgotten by your fans. I hope to get all your albums on cd that will make up my A-ha collection.
    Take care and see you in Glasgow on Wedensday.

    Can’t believe it’s nearly over. At 14 years old I queued over night at the Manchester Apollo to see you for the first time, I’m 38 now! You have meant so much to me over the years, seen me through the good and bad times. My friend and I wrote stories about you in school, you won’t believe the things you got up to! I saw you at the Albert Hall in October, I’ll be there in Manchester next week and I’ll see you on the 4th in Oslo. Thank you so much for everything.

    Wonderful news about the live DVD! May I ask that an uncut version with a complete view of the stage be included along with the edited version. I’d like to be able to experience the entire concert and have the choice of watching which band member I want to watch at any given time. I’m sure the edited version will mostly focus on Morten, which is only natural because he’s the one singing the songs, but there are some fans out there (like me) who don’t want two hours of Morten. Please give the fans of Magne and Paul a chance to watch their favourite band member throughout the entire concert. Thanks!

    Fantastic news about the live DVD , we will now all have the momento of the last ever show . It would be a great idea to do separate cameras on morten/magne /paul perhaps to be included in the extras , also dont forget the fan party footage !!. Great news on announcing this filming of the show ! Thanks !!

    That’s fabulous news! I’m still buzzing from last night’s Brighton show. I hung around for 2 hours before and 2 hours afterwards but didn’t manage to speak to the band (Dave the roadie was lovely, though!). Today is my 36th birthday and the gig made it really special. I went on my own and came away with a new friend, which is always a beautiful thing. I look forward to seeing the boys in Sheffield next week (I have a friend who lives there, so it seemed the logical thing to do). The Brighton crowd went mental, and rightly so – the show was spectacular!

    Thanks, darlings, for 25 years of music. Like soulyacolia, life got in the way for a long time although the boys were always with me, but these last few months I’ve been listening to very little else and driving everyone around me nuts with tales of how I’d be seeing them twice. Once – now over (sadly, though it’s a wonderful and beautiful memory), the next one to look forward to (though I will cry like I did last night, because it’ll really be over).

    The Brighton crowd did you all proud (even though Morten’s audience accompaniment on Bandstand was, as Mags put it, a little complicated…).

    My gorgeous boys, I’ve loved you since I was ten. Thankfully, some things never change. x

    I want to thank Morten, Magne and Pal for all the songs and music and for being in my live.
    I wish you all the best and perhaps I will hear from you, again :-) With all my love.

    Please make the disc playable in North America and available within a few months. It would be wonderful if a tour of the museum exhibit was also included.

    I’m also still hoping the concert will be broadcast live on the internet. After 25 yrs. of being my favorite band, I’m so heartbroken I can’t make it to Oslo. God how I wanted to be there. Seeing it live on the web would be the next best thing.

    Thank goodness there will be a DVD, this is what we all have been hoping for, but still dont’t forget the livestream, please!!! Although I fear my internet connection will break down during the concert… The DVD will nevertheless anyway be bought by all the fans. I saw them in Nürnberg in October and since than I can’t listen to any other music anymore. Unfortunately it was the last chance for me to see them live, as I can’t afford to go one of the other final concerts. It was the concert I will never forget for the rest of my life. Since “Sun always shines on t.v.” came out when I was 11 it has always been my favorite song, but I also love all the others as well, the old and the new ones. A-ha will stay in our hearts forever!
    To Mags and Paul: Thank you so much for your wonderful lyrics and music through all those years!!
    To Morten: Many many thanks for your beautiful and extraordinary voice – you are just lovely. Please don’t ever stop singing!!

    I agree with everything with what people are writing about the DVD. Loads of extras and the tour of the museum would be a nice idea. It could be a double DVD, I’d pay whatever I have to to get it.
    Thank you to Mags Pal and Morten for all the years of happiness and your great music. I hope we still get to hear about what you are doing once a-ha has retired.
    God bless Morten and his family at this sad time. See you in Nottingham on Sunday, can’t wait. Lots and lots of love xxxxxxxxxx

    Hi! Thanks for the good news about the DVD. That is what I hoped for. I’ve been a fan from the early days, and after the concert in Stuttgart I was so amazed (The best concert I’ve ever seen!) that I bought some tickets for Mannheim too. It is really true what Morten said in Stuttgart: You’ve been part our lives for 25 years – and it is good to have this kind of memory of this aera. Although I think everyone of us hopes that you change your mind one day and give a-ha another chance…
    Morten, please don’t ever stop singing – and don’t ever stop asking questions until you’re sure you found the right answers!

    To Morten, Magne and Pal –
    A million thank-yous for the brilliant concert in Glasgow last night and to 25 years of FAB music! Can’t wait for the DVD of the final show. I was also 11 in 1985 when we all went daft for the three guys from Norway and ‘The sun always shines on TV’ was my favourite then and still is now. I loved the montage video at the end – brought back lots of happy memories!
    Morten – love and prayers to you and your family at this difficult time.
    Good luck to the three of you in your ‘retirement’ and hope to hear of any new music in the future.
    Thank-you again A-ha!

    I follow you since the beginning. I was 15 back in 1985 when you made it with “Take on Me”, but it was “The Sun Always Shines on TV” that really impressed me. Now I’m 41 years old and I just want to thank you for the music. All theses years, you’ve been the soundtrack of my life. I saw you for the first (and last) in Barcelona, last october. I would have liked to have you here in Portugal, but it wasn’t possible. Nevertheless, I feel happy to have seen you on stage once in my life. Best wishes for you guys. I’ll see you around.

    “Frankly if the concert is not on Bluray, DVD image quality is just so painfully awful that I won’t bother.”

    I guess you love DNR. DVD aren’t that bad. But DVD’s wont give you the unnatural and wax-like image a BD will when viewed with way too much DNR.
