A-ha is top of the pops at itunes festival

DYR was able to join the A-ha fans at Friday night’s gig at the Roundhouse in Camden, London. The 80s band are back with a vengeance and the release of their ninth studio album, “Foot of the Mountain”.

It’s seems that everyone has an A-ha memory, even the support act Reammon, who’s lead singer paid tribute to the band for being the soundtrack to his first kiss!

As soon as Mags started playing those famous synth hooks we were transported back to the 80s, bopping and singing along to iconic numbers like Take on Me, Scoundrel Days and the bond movie theme the Living Daylights. And numbers from the latest album, including title track Foot of the Mountain, the Bandstand and Riding the Crest of the Wave were interwoven into the band’s energetic set.

If you didn’t make the itunes concert, each performance has been recorded and will be available to download exclusively on . You can get your hands on the new A-ha album from 27th July.

DYR recommends that if you want tickets to A-ha’s autumn UK tour, you’d better hurry.
The band is most definitely in the rock and roll hall of fame and, oh yes, Morten is still really hot!
