Norwegian pop trio a-ha are set to perform at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence on Thursday 7 June as part of their 2018 Summer Electric Tour, performing some of their biggest hits.

They are best known for their international Number One hits Take on Me and The Sun Always Shines on TV – both of which were fruit of their best-selling debut album Hunting High and Low, released in 1985.

The trio have released ten studio and two live albums plus their latest highly acclaimed MTV Unplugged album. Loyal MTV fans have year on year voted Take on Me in their Top 10 Best Music Videos.

The multi-platinum selling trio is composed of lead vocalist Morten Harket, guitarist Pal Waaktaar-Savoy and keyboardist Magne Furuholmen.

Lead singer Morten Harket said: “We do feel a close affinity to the UK and our fans there. We have also always seen fans travel to our shows to and within the UK and welcome all. It’s exciting to play outdoors and take our music to locations which are not traditional Arena touring places.

“As ever we always want to do things in a new way, to keep things exciting for our fans. We are very much looking forward to playing in Kent.”
