Nokia Theatre, New York City
May 6-8, 2010.
My trek to New York City to see a-ha perform live at Nokia Theatre was bittersweet. I have waited 25 long years to see this band set foot on North American soil but I also knew this would be the last time ever I’d get to enjoy them live this side of the Atlantic. Over the years I haven’t really been involved in the community – aside from discussion with Keane fans who also loved a-ha so I really didn’t know what to expect in my adventures camping out on 44th St & Broadway for three whole days. I was lucky to pass this time with my two dear friends Lara and Jill whom I know well from the Keane message board. The night before the concert Jill and I wondered how early fans would line up. Are they as dedicated as Keane fans? We thought we’d do a walk-by at 11AM and see if there was a lineup. Lara got there first at 10:30AM and alerted us there were a good 15 people ahead of her. We arrived in line shortly before 11AM.
