Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy will be awarded the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav, during a special ceremony in Oslo on Tuesday, November 6. The Order of St. Olav is awarded for distinguished services for Norway and mankind. The members of a-ha are receiving this Royal Order for their outstanding musical contribution.
The ceremony will be attended by their families and representatives from the record business, and it is by invitation only. It will take place at Gamle Logen, Grev Wedels plass 2, from 12:00 – 2:00 pm.
Although the ceremony is by invitation, there are a few seats available, and we are fortunate to be able to give these away to our members. The guest list is still being finalized, so we don’t know the exact number of seats available yet. However if you are interested in attending and you can *definitely* make it to Oslo, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Depending on the response, will likely hold a random drawing to determine who will get the limited seats, and notify those chosen right away. Please do NOT book any travel arrangements until we send out notifications to those who have been chosen. Also, as some people have asked, please note that we are only giving away seats at the ceremony, we cannot offer travel or accommodation.
Thank you to everyone who sent in a request for a seat at Tuesday’s ceremony. We have sent out notifications via e-mail to those who were selected, so please check your inboxes and confirm your attendance as soon as possible.
If you would like to post a message of congratulations to Morten, Magne and Paul on this outstanding achievement, please leave a comment below!
