a-ha is undoubtedly the Norwegian band with the greatest international success. a-ha is the only Norwegian act that has reached nr. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (peaked at nr. 2 on the UK Singles Chart), with smash hit “Take On Me” in October 1985.
Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paal Waaktaar-Savoy have been awarded Spellemann nine times, and a-ha has sold over 100 million units, albums and singles combined, since the bands inception in 1982. The band has released nine studio albums, four compilations and two live albums.
December 2014 saw the trio announcing a live-comeback in 2015: a-ha will return to Rio, the site of their 1991 world-record concert at the Rock in Rio. Reissues of the trio’s most central albums are also set for 2015.
