A short report. The venue was fantastic, really nice low stage, no barriers etc. He sounded perfect (I mean it, his voice is in a brilliant condition!) and looked gorgeous (yes, I know, he always does) :wub2: He wasn't totally on fire, but still chatty. The audience wasn't as good as at the other US gig I saw, some people were talking while songs like Hia Leah :blink: SO disturbing! He didn't do Only Lonely Man or any new songs, but he did the rest of setlist and added Happy Ending. No encore though, even they didn't do the usual "ending bow" with Max and Curtis. It was a bit awkward (because people expected him to come back), but he had finished the setlist so I guess there was nothing to add. I really enjoyed the show and it was a nice ending for my trip. I would have loved to say thank you (because it was the last concert for me for a long time) but it looked too difficult so we just left. Sadly my pics are not good but will write a small report later.

^yay you got some of my pics already. Im still in Vegas, I'll post some more when I get home tonight.

 

Anyways the show was great! I loved it! But like Nina said the crowd was kinda "eh".

 

Mika never put on the Easter ears so there wouldn't be pix. =\ he just mentioned then a lot l. That max and Curtis pic, the reason i posted it even though its crappy is because I gave then some beads to wear. No big deal but I thought it was cute. They took them off when they came out with Mika though.

 

But I had a blast and it was great hanging with Nina again! And I also saw an LA polka dot choir buddy there! It was great to see her since I couldn't go to the LA show.

I'll post more/again when I get home. I hate using my iPhone for forums! :aah:

Thanks for your reviews and pics Nina. I've been reading them all. :flowers2:

 

I feel so removed from it in a way and feel like the east coast shows are going to have a totally different vibe so I'm still not quite sure what to expect. But Mika's performances in LA were amazing.

 

I haven't been to Vegas in 20 years so I don't recognize any of the things in your pics. It's changed so much!! :shocked: I used to love the thrill of the slot machines going off but it just gives me a headache now too. :naughty:

 

Is it ridiculous to say this venue almost looks too small (yeah okay it's ridiculous but...). I can imagine people talking in the back because it just seems like a local little comedy club instead of a music venue for someone like Mika.

 

It must have been amazing for you though. Have you taken any video? Not to post, but just for yourself?

I wrote a gig/LV review with a few pics, it's here:

Lucy, it was great to meet you again!

 

Thanks Nina. I found the introduction to your blog particularly interesting as that is exactly the why that I feel about Vegas. I find it strangely compelling...and yet all the time hating the fact that I feel that I want to go back. As soon as this gig was annnounced I felt as though a magnet was trying to pull me there!:aah: And yet, like you, I want to take a hammer to all those machines!

 

Thanks for sharing the pictures too. It must have been great to see Mika in such a small intimate setting.:thumb_yello::mikalove:
