He was in London when she interviewed him from the studio.
She says that 2 years ago, his sister was very sick & he had to cancel some shows.
Mika says he will not cancel the show last minute in August.
(for those of you who don't know, Mika was to appear at that same festival a few years ago, but canceled. The festival des montgolfieres was not pleased at all. I think that day, he appeared on "good morning america")
He says he is very sorry for what happened in the past, but this time he will be there. He says this festival is really cool & he is happy to be part of it, right before his birthday, he will be 29 on Aug. 18.
She says they will give him "la bascule" (where people grab the birthday boy & throw him up in the air while holding legs & arms & another spank his bottom... it's an old tradition
She mentions that Mika came to Montreal to work on his 3rd album.
He says that he decided one morning to come & booked a flight, he arrived in the afternoon, with no hotel reservation. He went to the studio, completely jetlagged & within an hour, they had written the first song.
Another radio person says that he heard that Mika was in a restaurant & a girl saw him, and said you really look like Mika, he said, it's me & she said no, Mika doesn't speak french. He tried to tell her, but she never believed him.
Apparently he mentioned it during an interview & the girl called in, spoke to him & apoligized.
Mitsou then repeats the date for the concert
