The Breeze Presents a-ha & Rick Astley


The Breeze Presents a-ha & Rick Astley 

The Breeze, Frontier Touring and Roundhouse Entertainment are excited to announce pop icons a-ha will tour New Zealand next March. This is the band’s first ever visit to the country and will also mark the return of a day on the green to New Zealand. They’ll be joined by very special guest Rick Astley at both New Zealand shows.

A-ha, The Norwegian trio who dominated pop charts worldwide during the ’80s, are celebrating the 35th anniversary of their hugely influential debut album Hunting High And Low and will be performing the album in full. Selling more than 11 million copies worldwide, it includes the unforgettable Take On Me which peaked at number seven on the New Zealand charts – remaining in the chart for 18 weeks – as well as follow-up hits The Sun Always Shines On TV, Train Of Thought and the title track.

Joining a-ha to make this one poptastic event not to be missed is another superstar who dominated the ’80s, Rick Astley – also making his debut in New Zealand. 

With a treasure trove laden with shimmering pop hits, a-ha and Rick Astley are set to thrill fans with shows in Christchurch at Horncastle Arena on Thursday March 5 and a day on the green on Saturday March 7 at Villa Maria, Auckland.

“(Hunting High And Low is) one of the albums that have stood the test of time and still sounds great today”. - NME
