The group, Morten Harket, Magne Furuholmen and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, have enjoyed a fantastic international career spanning 25 years, having 15 top 10 singles in the UK alone and selling over 35 million albums.
The ‘Ending on a High Note Farewell Tour 2010’ will mark the anniversary year of the release of the debut album ‘Hunting High and Low’ and the success of their critically acclaimed current album ‘Foot of The Mountain’.
The band have thanked all their fans for the amazing journey: “We’ve literally lived the ultimate boy’s adventure tale, through a longer, more rewarding career than anyone could hope for. Doing this now will give us a chance to get more involved in other meaningful aspects of life, be it humanitarian work, politics, or whatever else – and of course through new constellations in the field of art and music. We are retiring as a band, not as individuals. Change is always difficult and it is easy to get set in one’s ways. Now it is time to move on.”
