On Tuesday 5 November 2019, a-ha made their long-awaited return to the Royal Albert Hall stage, nine years since their last performance here.

The beloved Norwegian pop outfit delighted their many fans present in the sold out auditorium that night with not one but two sets. For the first half of the concert, they played the ten songs from their seminal 1985 debut album Hunting High And Low before returning for the second half with new and old, familiar and less-familiar songs.

We brought in photographer Andy Paradise to capture this evening with the leather-clad Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy. Check out our exclusive pictures below:
