a-ha perform at HMV in Oxford Street

 Type:Culture, Music
 Location:England, London

Coinciding with the release of the title track from their latest album 'Analogue', a-ha will perform a one-off gig at HMV's Oxford Street store in Central London on 30 January.

This is a-ha's first HMV in-store signing since January 1986 which then brought Oxford Street to a temporary standstill. The band will perform six songs before meeting their fans.
The store (150 Oxford Street, London W1D 1DJ) will issue 400 wristbands in total to fans on the day of the event from 8.30am, January 30, on a first-come-first-served basis, one wristband per person only, no reservations, subject to availability. Fans should queue in Adam & Eve Court (an alley to the side of the HMV store), where the official queue will be based for the distribution of wristbands.

Those who obtain a wristband will be in a cordoned off area in front of the stage to watch the band's performance, and afterwards will be guaranteed to meet the band. ONLY those with a wristband will meet the band.

The store will still be open to people without wristbands who are doing their shopping (unless it gets too hectic - then they will shut the store), but they will not be able to watch from the closed off area and won't meet the band. They will, however, be able to watch it on one of the in-store screens that will be showing the performance.

Because of the numbers of people involved, and the fact that everyone with a wristband will definitely meet the band, fans are advised that they will not be able to get multiple items signed as this will not leave enough time for everyone to meet them.

The single 'Analogue' is now out. The band has also set up an extra concert at London's Sheperds Bush Empire on 2 February - it sold out in less than two days.
