A Day On The Green ft. a-ha Plus Rick Astley



All Ages

Norwegian pop icons a-ha are returning to Australia for the first time in 34 years. They'll be taking in Melbourne and Sydney plus A Day On The Green venues—Perth, Yarra Valley, Hunter Valley and Mount Cotton—before heading to New Zealand for the first time, playing Christchurch and another A Day On The Green show in Auckland.

The band dominated pop charts worldwide during the '80s and still regularly play stadiums and festivals. Singer Morten Harket, keyboardist Mags Furuholmen and guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy have sold more than 55 million albums and remain one of the UK and Europe's most loved pop bands. Alongside ‘Take On Me’, the trio have scored global hits with the James Bond theme 'The Living Daylights', 'Cry Wolf', 'I've Been Losing You' and 2005 Max Martin collaboration 'Analogue'. Their most recent release was a 2017 MTV Unplugged collection featuring collaborations with Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch and Alison Moyet.

Joining a-ha to cement this tour as a pop extravaganza is another superstar who dominated the '80s, Rick Astley. Also enjoying a major career resurgence, the British star has sold more than 40 million albums, fuelled by hits like the monster 'Never Gonna Give You Up', 'Whenever You Need Somebody', 'Together Forever', 'When I Fall In Love', 'She Wants To Dance With Me' and 'Cry For Help'. In 2007, Rick Astley became an internet phenomenon as the subject of a viral meme known as 'Rick-rolling', with 'Never Gonna Give You Up' collecting millions of hits on YouTube as a result, introducing him to a whole new audience.

The a day on the green events in Australia will also feature synth-pop stars Pseudo Echo and I Know Leopard.

Pioneers of the '80s electronic and new romantic sound, Pseudo Echo released their debut album 'Autumnal Park' in 1984, skyrocketing the band to national success with the singles 'Listening', 'Stranger In Me', 'Dancing Until Midnight' and 'A Beat For You'. Their follow-up 'Love An Adventure' spawned another string of hits including its title track, 'Don’t Go', 'Try', 'Living In A Dream' and their remake of Lipps Inc's 'Funky Town', which brought them international chart success while also spending seven weeks at number one in Australia. Pseudo Echo's music continues to influence and resonate today.

I Know Leopard recently released their debut album 'Love Is A Landmine' featuring catchy singles 'Landmine', 'Heather' and 'Seventy Lies'. Revelling in glam, dreamy synth pop and the kind of playful, upbeat '70s soft rock made famous by ELO, 10cc and the The Alan Parsons Project, I Know Leopard are sure to fascinate audiences with their glorious vintage analogue synths and retro-futuristic sounds.
