Returning to Australia for the first time in 34 years, a-ha will be performing their classic album 'Hunting High and Low' as well as other favourites from across their career.

Joining a-ha will be a very special guest Rick Astley, another superstar who dominated the '80s with classic hits like 'never Gonna Give You Up'. Synth-pop start I Know Leopard will support these '80s legends.
