“A-Ha” to split in 2010

Norwegian music sensations “A-Ha” are to split after a world tour in 2010 according to their official website.  The following is the official statement released by the trio on their site:

We’ve literally lived the ultimate boy’s adventure tale, through a longer, more rewarding career than anyone could hope for.
Doing this now will give us a chance to get more involved in other meaningful aspects of life, be it humanitarian work, politics, or whatever else – and of course through new constellations in the field of art and music. We are retiring as a band, not as individuals.
Change is always difficult and It is easy to get set in one’s ways. Now it is time to move on.

2010 marks the 25th anniversary of their biggest single “Take On Me” which reached number 1 in 27 countries around the world and was released from their multi-platinum “Hunting High & Low” album. The tour dates for their farewell tour are currently unknown but it will end in Oslo on December 4th 2010.
