How to Hire A-HA For Your Event!
Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen, Paul Waaktaar-Savoy
A-ha (usually stylised as a-ha) is a Norwegian synth-pop band formed in Oslo in 1982. Founded by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (guitars), Magne Furuholmen (keyboards and guitars and vocals), and Morten Harket (vocals), the band rose to fame during the mid-1980s.
Their discography includes eleven studio albums, eight compilation albums, six box sets, ten extended plays, and fifty singles. This list does not include solo material or other projects recorded by A-ha band members.
A-ha achieved their biggest success with their debut album Hunting High and Low in 1985. The album peaked at number one in their native country Norway, number 2 in the UK, and number 15 on the US Billboard album chart, and yielded two international number-one singles: “Take On Me” and “The Sun Always Shines on T.V.” and earned the band a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist.

In the UK, Hunting High and Low continued its chart success into the following year, becoming one of the best-selling albums of 1986. The band released studio albums in 1986, 1988, and 1990, with single hits including “Hunting High and Low”, “The Living Daylights”, “Stay on These Roads”, and “Crying in the Rain”.
On 12 September 2005, A-ha played a quickly sold-out show at Irving Plaza in New York City, the band’s first concert in North America since 1986, despite not having released any material there since 1993. On 27 August 2005, the band played a concert for 120,000 people in Frogner Park in Oslo, the largest concert ever in Norway.
They have sold more than 100 million units, albums and singles combined.
At the January 1991 Rock in Rio II festival, A-ha shocked the international entertainment press by drawing an audience of 198,000 at Maracanã stadium for their top-billed evening concert—a Guinness World Record for biggest rock concert attendance. In contrast, the other performers (George Michael, Prince and Guns N’ Roses) each drew less than a third of that audience (60,000 each).
Following the success of their debut, the band was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1986. A-ha won eight MTV Video Music Awards, six for “Take On Me” and two for “The Sun Always Shines on TV”. “Take On Me” was also nominated for Favorite Pop/Rock Video at the American Music Awards of 1986. A-ha have won 10 Spellemannprisen awards, the Norwegian equivalent of the Grammy Awards.
In November 2012, all three band mates were appointed Knights of the 1st Class of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav for their contribution to Norwegian music.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE A-HA?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire A-HA for an event?)
(i.e., what is A-HA booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for A-HA, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
