A-ha to headline iTunes Live festival on 24 JulyPosted on 06/07/09
The third annual month-long iTunes Live Festival will take place at the Roundhouse in London (UK), and will include daily free performances by dozens of artists. A-ha will take the stage on Friday 24 July. The lineup for the festival also includes Simple Minds, Oasis, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian, The Saturdays, and so on. For those unable to attend - or those who want to relive the experience - all the performances will be recorded and made available for download on the iTunes site just like it was the case with the previous editions. The new A-ha album is yours for just 9,99 EURO if you order it right here (shipping for free worldwide).
How can you win free tickets? Become a fan of the iTunes (EU) page and follow the instructions there. The show marks the UK release of A-ha's "Foot Of The Mountain" single and album, both of which have been extremely well received by the press and the public, not in the least because the material marks the return of the Norwegian act to its roots, namely synthpop music with catchy hooks. Add to this that the "Foot Of The Mountain" single holds an excellent club version.
Below are 3 live videos taken from the band's live set at the Magic FM Indulgence Night, in London, on July 2nd in front of a selected public. The first is the band playing "The Bandstand", probably also the second single to be taken from the band's current album "Foot Of The Mountain". The next one is the classic "The Sun Always Shines On TV" followed by "Analogue".
