a-ha to Play Debut Album in Reunion Concert

May 12, 2010 (7:32 am) GMT
The '80s band who was popular for 'Take on Me' plan to mark their comeback by playing the entire album in a concert.

Pop veterans will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut album by performing the disc in its entirety at a special London concert later this year. The Norwegian stars shot to fame with their hit song "Take On Me" in the 1980s and reunited in 1998 after a four year hiatus.

Last October, a-ha announced plans to split after completing their final world tour, titled "Ending on a High Note", at the end of this year. But the band will give fans attending their gig at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall a rare treat when they play their first release, "", in full for the first time ever.

Guitarist Magne Furuholmen says, "The Royal Albert Hall has always been one of our favorite places in the world to play. To perform here one final time - and play our first album in its entirety, now, at the end of our career... this will be a very emotional moment for us all."

The special London concert is scheduled to take place on October 8.
