Ending on a High Note: The Final Concert (Live at Oslo Spektrum: December 4, 2010) is a live album released in 2011 by Norwegian band a-ha. It was recorded at the Oslo Spektrum, Oslo on 4 December 2010; which was initially planned to be their final concert before their eventual reunion in 2015. The concert on the previous night was also recorded as a back-up. The album contains the entire set from the final concert with the notable exclusions of "The Bandstand" and "Bowling Green", the latter being an Everly Brothers cover the band performed as part of the final encore.

There were separate CD, DVD, deluxe DVD (2 CDs and DVD) and Blu-ray editions. The CD only release is a one disc CD and only features 16 tracks.
