a-ha to Play Scarborough Open Air Theatre This Summer
Global pop legends a-ha are bringing their 2022 World Tour to the Yorkshire coast this summer.
Almost 40 years after their breakthrough, the synth pop pioneers are still creating magic on stages across the globe with their timeless music. And the multi-Platinum selling Norwegian trio are now bringing their World Tour to Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Sunday July 3.
The group are regarded as true visionaries of both music and video technology. And they burst onto the global stage in 1985. Their debut album Hunting High and Low, which featured the Number 1 hits ‘Take on Me’ and ‘The Sun Always Shines On TV’, is widely regarded as one of the most important releases of the 1980s.
“True pop pioneers”
a-ha have gone on to release 10 studio and two live albums, and a highly acclaimed MTV Unplugged album. ‘Take On Me’, has now been viewed 1.4 billion times on Youtube. And. it’s been repeatedly voted in MTV fans’ ‘Top 10 Best Music Videos’ of all time.
a-ha join a stellar summer line-up at Scarborough Open Air Theatre. Shows by Christina Aguilera, Sam Fender and Lewis Capaldi, plus many more will entertain thousands this year.
Venue programmer and promoter Peter Taylor, of Cuffe and Taylor, said: “a-ha are true pop pioneers. Visionaries, and one of the most loved bands of the last 40 years. Their 2022 tour sees them headline many huge venues, including the Hollywood Bowl, so we are delighted to be bringing them to the UK’s very own iconic open-air arena – right here on the beautiful Yorkshire coast.”
