The tour will see a-ha play their 1985 debut album Hunting High and Low in its entirety. Selling more than 11 million copies worldwide, it included the juggernaut Take on Me. Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy will be performing new and old songs, as well as the ten songs off their 1985 debut album Hunting High and Low in the running order of the original release.

The trio have also scored global hits with the James Bond theme The Living Daylights as well as Cry Wolf, I've Been Losing You and the 2005 Max Martin-collaboration Analogue, while their most recent release was an MTV Unplugged collection in 2017 featuring collaborations with Echo & The Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch and Alison Moyet.
