Magne performed a concert at the Tent stage at Hovefestivalen, which to date was his last solo concert. He also participated in the festival in the form of an audio installation called ‘Transmutation’.
In January 2008, there was an announcement on a-ha.com of a triple solo concert – Morten, Magne and Savoy – at Royal Albert Hall in London. There was also a hint that some new a-ha material might be previewed at the concert.
Prior to the triple solo concerts in Oslo and London in May 2008, Magne had three quietly announced ‘warm up’ concerts at the tiny but cozy Palace Grill in Oslo. He also did a warm up concert for Hove Festival here in June.
Magne joined 29 other artists to perform at ‘perhaps the largest exhibition ever of Norwegian artists outside Norway’. Three rooms at Fabric were dedicated to acts ranging from jazz to electronica to house.
