The Norwegian 80’s pop band A-Ha is in the midst of their Global Farewell Tour, and hit Chicago’s Riviera Theater last Wed.
here are the three members… Lead singer Morten Harket
Guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy
And keyboardist ‘Mags’ Furuholmen
Why should you care? If you don’t remember, in 1985 the band, and director Steve Barron gave us one of the best comic book inspired rotoscope videos Take On Me. It was animated by Michael Patterson .
It won 6 MTV music video awards, but ironically lost the video of the year category to Dire Strait’s Computer animated “Money For Nothing”. Plus Family Guy gave it a hilarious send up in a random opening scene.
