A Ha

Last July, Magne mentioned in a radio interview that a-ha would return to America in 2010, and fans have been waiting eagerly since then for news of US tour dates. The wait is over...

Back in 2005, a-ha played a single show in America, at Irving Plaza in New York on September 12. The concert sold out in 52 minutes and fans from all over the United States traveled to New York for the one-off show.

A-ha's "farewell tour" visits the United States for only three dates. Two of them (May 6-7) are at Nokia Theatre in NYC, and tickets are on sale (@ noon). The third show is in LA and that is on sale today too.

Martin Sexton is playing Nokia Theatre on June 5th. Tickets are on sale (@ noon)

Tickets are on sale (@ noon) for The Specials show at Terminal 5. Updated North American tour dates (all four of them) below.

Tickets are on sale (@ noon) for the Sia show at Terminal 5. How was her appearance with Gonzales at Joe's Pub last night?

The frontman reminds me of Patric Swayze. RIP

The Residents? I looked em' up on youtube and they sound like they took too much acid. The Beets are >>> than, The Ooh sees, cause commotion, Beach Fossils, real estate and all the other...wait, maybe not Real Estate, but a lot better than any of those other fucking annoying bands that try. They can actually write songs for a change

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...

I knew they had a following but not one like that still. Sold the one show out in 52 minutes is amazing to me. I liked one or 2 of thier songs but do not know any others. they might be interesting to see live.

I found your blog a few days ago from Google and have been reading it over the past few days.

Never heard of this band, so had to look them up, they're going, I guess.
