A-ha ft. Rick Astley - A Day on the Green
Norwegian pop icons a-ha are returning to Australia for the first time in 34 years.
The band dominated pop charts worldwide during the '80s and still regularly play stadiums and festivals. Singer Morten Harket, keyboardist Mags Furuholmen and guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy have sold more than 55 million albums and remain one of the UK and Europe's most loved pop bands. Alongside ‘Take On Me’, the trio have scored global hits with the James Bond theme 'The Living Daylights', 'Cry Wolf', 'I've Been Losing You' and 2005 Max Martin collaboration 'Analogue'. Their most recent release was a 2017 MTV Unplugged collection featuring collaborations with Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch and Alison Moyet.
Joining a-ha to cement this tour as a pop extravaganza is another superstar who dominated the '80s, Rick Astley. Also enjoying a major career resurgence, the British star has sold more than 40 million albums, fuelled by hits like the monster 'Never Gonna Give You Up', 'Whenever You Need Somebody', 'Together Forever', 'When I Fall In Love', 'She Wants To Dance With Me' and 'Cry For Help'. In 2007, Rick Astley became an internet phenomenon as the subject of a viral meme known as 'Rick-rolling', with 'Never Gonna Give You Up' collecting millions of hits on YouTube as a result, introducing him to a whole new audience.
Hitting a Day on the Green at Sirromet Winery in Mount Cotton, Brisbane, they will be joined by Pseudo Echo and I Know Leopard.
