A-ha performed “Hunting High and Low” and more at Radio City Music Hall (photos, setlist, video)


Big names in Norwegian pop A-ha are best known in the US for their 1985 hit “Take on Me” (and its breakthrough video) but they’re superstars in their home country, with eight No. 1 albums (and two that went to No. 2) and dozens of hit singles. Celebrating their 40th anniversary with a world tour, A-ha traveled to New York 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: a career-spanning set that included their cover of Carole King’s “Crying in the Rain” (a No. 1 hit in Norway in 1990) their theme for the 1987 James Bond film Living daylightsand more, as well as equipment for True Norththeir new documentary and album to be released this fall.

After a short hiatus, A-ha returned to perform their classic 1985 debut album, High and low flush, in its entirety, but not in original running order. They recorded the single “The Sun Always Shines on TV” for the final song of the main set and then, of course, returned to perform “Take on Me” for the show’s finale.

Photos from Toby Tenenbaum’s show are in this article, and you can check out the setlist and fan-shot video below.

SETLIST: A-ha @ Radio City Music Hall 04/12/2022
Sycamore leaves
The swing of things
Crying in the Rain (Carole King cover)
forest for trees
You have what it takes
I lost you
scoundrel days
Living daylights

High and low flush
train of thought
The blue sky
Living out a boy’s adventure tale
And you tell me
love is the reason
I dream of myself alive
Here I stand and face the rain
High and low flush
The sun always shines on TV

take on me
