    A-Ha Reuniting for September Concert - They are celebrating "Take On Me!" [an error occurred while processing this directive][an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Take me on! Take on me!

    Norwegian pop band a-ha are reuniting next year, since they will celebrate the 30th anniv of their one hit (wonder).

    "Take on Me" was a smash in 1985 and the band reunited in 1998 and then split in 2010 again.

    They will reunite yet again at the September Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which also turns 30 in 2015. Dirty 30!

    It's a full circle situation, since A-Ha originally performed at Rock in Rio for the first time in 1991.

    What goes around...

    Keyboardist Magne Furuholmen stated, "The concert at the Maracana stadium in 1991 was one of the greatest highlights in A-Ha's career. When the band got an offer to return in connection to the festival's 30th anniversary, it was impossible to turn it down."

    Huzzah.

    Anyone plan to check out any of the Rock in Rio editions?
