80's pop band, A-ha, played a blinder of a gig last night at ‘Live at the Marquee’ in Cork if the reaction of delighting concert goers on Twitter is anything to go by.
The iconic band, known for songs such as ‘Take on me’ and ‘Hunting high and low’ came in for plenty of praise after the gig.
Some have been lifelong fans.
I fell in love with A-ha when I was 9. Tonight I finally got to see them, 30+ years later 🤩 what an amazing night @aha_com @LATMofficial #cork pic.twitter.com/HZYdrDwoAU— 𝒮𝓅𝑜𝑜𝓀𝓎 𝐵𝑜𝑜 𝒯𝑒𝓇𝓇𝑜𝓇 🎃👻☠️ (@SusanBurkeTrehy) June 12, 2018

Some were waiting their entire life to see the band live.
Waiting over 30 years to see them live. Roll on June 12th the Marquee Cork. 😃— Seamus Kennedy (@SeamusKennedy16) June 2, 2018
For many, the band reminded them of simpler times.
We’re waiting! A looooong time since the 80s when I had to persuade my Mum that my very first album purchase was a good idea! @aha_com #cork #marquee #LiveAtTheMarquee @aikenpromotions #RememberWhen you knew all the words! #IKnowAllTheWords!! #80smusic pic.twitter.com/i088OeuBd2— Geraldine Lavin (@GeraldineLavin) June 12, 2018
Safe to say, next time the band return to Cork they won’t have any trouble selling tickets.
