Ending On A High Note Tour

Ending On A High Note Tour is a worldwide concert tour by Norway synthpop/rock band a-ha in support of the group's 9th studio album, Foot of the Mountain, which was released in June 2009.[1]

On 15 October 2009, the band announced they are to split after a worldwide concert tour in 2010.[2]

The tour began on March 4 at the Estadio Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina and will end on 4 December in Oslo Spektrum in Oslo, Norway, visiting many cities in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom and several European countries.

The upcoming sold out a-ha show in Santiago, Chile on 6 March is cancelled. Due to the current difficult circumstances in connection with the recent earthquake, the Chilean government has suspended all artistic activity in the country. The concert for Santiago, Chile has been rescheduled for March 23.[3]

Due to demand, the a-ha concert on March 16 in Centro de Convenções (Brasilia, Brazil) has been moved to a larger venue, Ginásio Nilson Nelson.[4]


End of a-ha

On 15 October 2009, through a press release from the official website of the group, "has stated that after his latest album Foot of the Mountain , with the success enjoyed by both commercial and critical acclaim, had decided that now was the time of final dissolution of the band. In a statement on the news the band thanked all the cooperation and support received throughout his career, they talked and put an end with these words:

"We've literally lived the ultimate boy's adventure tale, through a longer, more rewarding career than anyone could hope for.
Doing this now will give us a chance to get more involved in other meaningful aspects of life, be it humanitarian work, politics, or whatever else - and of course through new constellations in the field of art and music. We are retiring as a band, not as individuals.
Change is always difficult and It is easy to get set in one's ways. Now it is time to move on. "
