June Highlights from the Electric Summer Tour
The Electric Summer tour is now 11 shows in, and audiences in England, Ireland and Israel have had the experience of seeing a-ha perform a stadium concert with a spectacular light show.
The set list has consisted of 18 songs, mostly the classic hits - although with a few surprises thrown in. 'This Is Our Home', the new track from 'MTV Unplugged - Summer Solstice', was played in Canterbury, Yeovil and Cambridge, and then 'Sycamore Leaves' took its place for the remainder of the June dates. You can find all the show set lists in the Past Tours section.
'Take On Me' has a funkier new arrangement, which Kent Online said "was even better than the original and Morten’s vocals were spot-on". For an interesting breakdown of the set list arrangements, read this concert review from Canterbury written by Barry Page.
First Concert in Tel Aviv
On June 21, a-ha performed in Israel for the first time. There was a press conference the day after they arrived in Tel Aviv:
The guys also appeared on television to talk about the decision to play in Israel, among other topics:
Following a twelve day break, the band is performing today in Sweden and Friday at Kongsberg Jazzfest. There are 22 additional concerts coming up in July and August, so be sure to check the a-ha.com Past Tours section often for band photos from the road, fan photos, set lists, video playlists and media links.
