How to Hire A-HA For Your Event!
A-ha (usually stylised as a-ha) is a Norwegian synth-pop band
formed in Oslo in 1982. Founded by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (guitars), Magne
Furuholmen (keyboards and guitars and vocals), and Morten Harket (vocals), the
band rose to fame during the mid-1980s.
Their discography includes eleven studio albums, eight compilation albums, six
box sets, ten extended plays, and fifty singles. This list does not include solo
material or other projects recorded by A-ha band members.
A-ha achieved their biggest success with their debut album Hunting
High and Low in 1985. The album peaked at number one in their native country
Norway, number 2 in the UK, and number 15 on the US Billboard album chart, and
yielded two international number-one singles: "Take On Me" and "The Sun Always
Shines on T.V." and earned the band a Grammy Award nomination for Best New

In the UK, Hunting High and Low continued its chart success into the
following year, becoming one of the best-selling albums of 1986. The band
released studio albums in 1986, 1988, and 1990, with single hits including
"Hunting High and Low", "The Living Daylights", "Stay on These Roads", and
"Crying in the Rain".
On 12 September 2005, A-ha played a quickly sold-out show at Irving Plaza
in New York City, the band's first concert in North America since 1986, despite
not having released any material there since 1993. On 27 August 2005, the band
played a concert for 120,000 people in Frogner Park in Oslo, the largest concert
ever in Norway.
They have sold more than 100
million units, albums and singles combined.
At the January 1991 Rock in Rio II festival, A-ha shocked the international
entertainment press by drawing an audience of 198,000 at Maracană stadium for
their top-billed evening concert—a Guinness World Record for biggest rock
concert attendance. In contrast, the other performers (George Michael,
Prince and Guns N' Roses)
each drew less than a third of that audience (60,000 each).
Following the success of their debut, the band was nominated for a Grammy Award
for Best New Artist in 1986. A-ha won eight MTV Video Music Awards, six
for "Take On Me" and two for "The Sun Always Shines on TV". "Take On Me" was
also nominated for Favorite Pop/Rock Video at the American Music Awards of 1986.

the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav for their contribution to Norwegian music.
