The Norwegian act a-ha will play a one-off live show called “Afterglow” with advanced scenography by Void. The concert will take place in Oslo at the Spectrum venue on May 3rd.
For the show, a-ha will clear away their normal stage-production to give room for a very different concert performance in collaboration with Void, a computational design studio working in the intersection between design, architecture, art and technology.
Tickets are available right here.
If you go to the concert, you might want to purchase a ‘Collector Ticket’ which gives you this nice lanyard on the left.
“We are excited to work with Void, who have done some excellent installations, among others for Kraftwerk, and we welcome this opportunity to try and create something truly extraordinary together”, says Magne Furuholmen from a-ha.
Bjørn Staal, designer and programmer at Void is as excited by the project so it seems: “Being trusted with the task of creating our own interpretation of a-ha’s material is not something we take lightly. Then again, we have more than 60.000 square meters of space to play with so I’m pretty sure we can make something that will fulfil our ambition of creating a concert experience like no other.”
We wouldn’t be surprised if this concert is going to be filmed for a future DVD/Blu-ray release.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
