    a-ha to play U.K. stadiums with OMD, Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey next summer

    [tweetmeme]The reunited Norwegian pop trio a-ha has begun rolling out summer 2018 tour dates, including a half-dozen shows in the U.K. that will find the group playing football stadiums and cricket grounds with all-star synthpop support from OMD and Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins.
    Those U.K. dates open June 7 and run through June 17, with OMD missing one show, June 9 in Yeovil; that concert will feature Marc Almond of Soft Cell instead. The “Electric Summer” tour — which will find a-ha in full band mode, as opposed to its more recent unplugged reunion dates — will then head to Israel and Europe for more dates in July. Watch the band’s website for ticketing details.
    After a worldwide farewell tour in 2010 that included rare U.S. dates, a-ha first reunited in 2011 to play a memorial for the victims of a Norwegian mass killing, then came back together again beginning in 2015 for sporadic shows and tours. The trio last month released a live album chronicling its 2017 unplugged tour.
