Norwegian pop greats A-ha are mainly known in the U.S. for their 1985 hit "Take on Me" (and its groundbreaking video) but they are superstars in their homeland, with eight #1 albums (and two that went to #2), and dozens of hit singles. Celebrating their 40th anniversary with a world tour, A-ha hit NYC on Tuesday night for their first show here in a decade, and their first time at Radio City Music Hall since "Take on Me" was a hit.

The band played two sets. First up: a career-spanning set that included their cover of Carole King's "Crying in the Rain" (a #1 hit in Norway in 1990) their theme to 1987 James Bond flick The Living Daylights, and more, as well as material from True North, their new documentary and album that's due this fall.

After a short break, A-ha came back to play their classic 1985 debut album, Hunting High and Low, in full, albeit not in original running order. They saved single "The Sun Always Shines on TV" for the last song of the main set and then, of course, came back to perform "Take on Me" for the show's sing-a-long encore finale.

Pictures from the show by Toby Tenenbaum are in this post, and you can check out the setlist and fan-shot video below.
