On 2 July 2005, A-ha performed at the Berlin edition of Live 8, in front of an audience of nearly 200,000 people. They began with „Hunting High and Low”, followed by „Take on Me”, during whichMorten Harket had difficulties hearing himself when his in-ear monitor failed: he requested a two-minute break, which he used to comment on the cause of Live 8. The intended two minutes became almost seven, and the third song, „Summer Moved On,” became the last of their set. Although four songs had been rehearsed, the band’s time had run out and the organizers told them to leave the stage.
On 12 September 2005, A-ha played a quickly-sold-out show at Irving Plaza in New York City, the band’s first concert in North America since 1986 despite not having released any material there since 1993. On 27 August 2005, the band played a concert for 120,000 people in Frogner Park in Oslo, the largest concert ever in Norway.
