The premiere of Aida Night of the Proms
In Rotterdam Morten Harket, The Baseballs and Mark King (Level 42) arrived for rehearsals. Amy Macdonald, John Miles, the choir Fine Fleur and the orchestra Il Novecento are already well-rehearsed through the concerts in Antwerp and Rotterdam.
Last Sunday organizer Dirk Hohmeyer shared some information about the new production at Bayern3 radio show "Fritz & Hits": Morten Harket for example will not present his mega hit "Take on me" with orchestra. According to him the realisation of the synthiepop evergreen with orchestra isn't ideal, it doesn't sound good. Thus he will present two new songs and three a-ha songs.

As Jacob reported on http://a-ha-live.com/ Morten gave an intimate solo concert in his neighbourhood Hurum on the 27th October. He thereby demonstrated his particular commitment to the former employees of Södra Cell Tofte cellulose factory, where 295 people lost their jobs when the owners decided to cease production.
