In 2010, A-ha were going on a farewell tour.
They have had tours since then.
After my first night in Amsterdam, I met up with the guys I were going to the A-ha concert with.
To the best of my memories, they arrived early the day of the concert, and I met them in the reception for the hotel we were staying at.
This hotel was considerably more fancy than the motel I had stayed at the night before.
I did not ask, but I doubt I would have been able to buy any “cheese” in that reception.
We spent most of that day “getting ready” for the concert.
Even after what happened to me over a year earlier, I had still not gained the good sense to just stay away from beer entirely.
I am incredible lucky that my gout did not ruin the rest of my trip.
I don’t think that I even brought any of my medication.
The concert was held in the Heineken Music Hall, and it was great.
I had never really listened to A-ha that much before this, but I really enjoyed myself.
I particularly liked when they performed their theme tune to the 1987 James Bond film ‘The Living Daylights’.
