  3. Sorry for the delay in starting this thread -- real life often gets in the way! In any case, let's talk a bit about what we'd like to do regarding a gift or flowers for Mika for the Paris concerts next month. As I said in the boat thread, we now have more than 100 MFC'ers committed to taking the Seine trip, which means we have a few hundred extra Euros. My original thought was to use that money to buy flowers for Mika. With the extra we can buy a really huge bouquet, and maybe even a bottle of wine. Unless someone has some other ideas? Alternatively, I could use the extra money collected to purchase food for the boat trip, and take up a separate collection for the flowers. Let's discuss here!

  7. One other note now, to aid in your planning. We were able to change the departure time to 3pm (15.00) on Sunday. We will need everyone there about 20 (14.40) minutes beforehand to start boarding. More details to follow!

  9. The trip should end where it begins, at the quay located near the foot of the Eiffel Tower. I'm sorry we won't see you on the boat! A unique location at the foot of the Eiffel Tower Port de Suffren - 75007 Paris Pedestrian access by Pont d’Iéna, left bank or by Bir-Hakeim bridge Metro Line 9: Trocadero Station Metro Line 6: Bir-Hakeim Station RER line C : Champ de Mars Bus Lines 42, 69, 82, 86 : Champ de Mars stop Bus Lines 22, 30, 32, 63 : Trocadero stop Car Access Paid parking (€8/hour) subject to availability. Vehicle access via Pont de Bir-Hakeim, left bank. (Although I think we get free parking, if anyone is driving -- I'll check again.) BUT... This brings me to a situation that is a bit awkward. Several fans who said they were interested in the boat ride, but did not get their payments in before we reached capacity for various reasons, are now unfortunately unable to join us due to the limit on the number of passengers. I really thought we would have plenty of spaces for everyone who was interested, but your interest far exceeded expectations! So... knowing that plans often change, I'm going to start a "wait list." This way, if anyone discovers they can't make the boat, they can let me know and I can refund their money, then substitute in the person at the top of the wait list. I'm really sorry that we cannot accommodate everyone who wants to go, but it's a safety issue, and a legal one. If you would like to be placed on the wait list, please let me know -- send me a private message here. Thanks. Also, one more thing. Plans are under way for a get-together on Saturday night before the concert. We'll be posting details about that here on the forum in the next day or two, so keep your eyes open for that!

  10. OK, I'm both sorry and surprised to have to say that the MFC Tour Boat has reached maximum capacity! We are at the legal limit, in fact. Now we have to pray for nice weather, because if it rains, no one will be outside on the top deck, we will all be huddled in the covered section! I have to admit, I wasn't sure if we would get enough passengers -- and I am totally surprised at your enthusiasm and response to this little event. Thank you all so much! I will be making final payment today! Just 24 days away now!

  11. Sorry, I've been out of town for a few days, so I have a lot to reply to here! OK, Ingie -- the boat has reached capacity at this point, but if you'd like to contribute a Euro or two, you can Paypal to mfcregister@gmail.com Yes, I'm worried that if we go to the trouble of making some homemade goodies that they might end up in the bin due to health and safety concerns. I'm awaiting an answer from his team to be sure about this, though. But believe me, he really, REALLY loves flowers. So I don't think we can go wrong with a huge bouquet. I'll look into this, Anne, thanks. And an update on this: I have gotten some contributions from a few people who are not going on the boat, but wanted to pitch in for the flowers/gift. If you'd like to as well, you can send the money to us via Paypal to mfcregister@gmail.com Please don't feel obligated, and please don't send more than a few Euros, as we do have a good sum of money already. I figure we'll need about 300-400€ to get a large bouquet/basket for Mika and then the smaller one for the conductor. As long as we stay in that price range, we should be OK.

  12. So a few little updates about the boat. Unfortunately, the person I need to talk to the most about our trip is on vacances this week, so finalizing the details will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday of next week. However, the people I spoke to this week are 99% sure that we can depart at 3pm (rather than 2pm). They are not sure about the food situation, so I'll keep you posted on that. On another note, because we have more than 100 fans coming now, I have more than the 2500€ needed for the boat. I will put that money toward flowers and/or a gift for Mika, and those who have already paid for the boat will not have to contribute anything extra. I'll start a thread in a bit where we can discuss the flowers/gift in more detail. And I just want to say -- 1 month from today we'll be SAILING THE SEINE on our MFC TOUR BOAT! If you haven't checked yet, here's the Instagram for Vedettes de Paris to give you a taste of what it will be like -- please, let our weather be this beautiful! https://www.instagram.com/vedettesdeparis/

  16. Not sure whether to actually put this here or not but... exciting news! I saw on twitter that the concerts at the weekend will be recorded and shown on a French TV channel, I've lost the tweet now so I'm not sure what channel or when it will be broadcasted. It would be amazing if it's going to be a CD, or even better a DVD! For those of us outside France who might not be able to watch it I hope someone will be able to record it and share a download link here??? (I know someone did that for the Versaille gig)

  19. I remember many years ago his team told us that he doesn't accept homemade food from fans, and Robertina had to ask his tour manager if she could send him her homemade lasagna. And given the actual situation, probably would be even more difficult... Or maybe we can order a nice floral arrangement that matches the symphonic theme, something like:

  20. He's always so happy about flowers. I think we can never go wrong with that. I could imagine something to eat instead of the wine tho, when he's busy he sometimes doesn't seem to have time to get food. Nice anecdote to that one... when we met him backstage at a TV show in Berlin in 2012 (we had won a M&G), my friend had brought Berliners for him and his band. They're like jam-filled donuts. The lady from the production gave us a pitying look and said sth like "well... you can try, but he doesn't eat carbs.". Mika when he opened the box looked like a child at Christmas and before we could say much he grabbed one of the Berliners and took a bite. Maybe he just was really hungry, who knows, but that was so funny and showed me that it's not always true what we think we know about his eating habits. I suppose he might be just like most of us, knowing that junk food and sweets aren't good for your health and trying to avoid them, but (occasionally) enjoying them nevertheless.

  21. I wouldn't separate the gifts of those who are and aren't going on the boat. Those who aren't going can just send a few € extra and then we can all put it in the same pot and buy a huge flower bouquet for Mika, a smaller one for Simon Leclerc, and maybe a bottle of wine (I'd prefer bigger bouquets to that tho, look how happy he was about the flowers he got backstage at the Amex gig. ).

  23. Deb, will you post a list of fans who paid? I know that some of them sent money but as you don't confirm it they are afraid that you didn't get it (of course I am pretty sure that you got it). But to avoid a bad surprise at the quey - will you post the list?

  25. I think there will be more money from people who did not pay yet and will come on the boat anyway. I don't know if we really need food for a one hour trip. I can imagine we will generally talk to each other or sing Mika's songs or admire Paris. Well maybe some drinks if you want (I don't drink - especially on boats - so I can live without it). So it will be enough money for beautiful flowers - maybe for both concerts? And those who will not come on the boat can give a few EUR for a bottle (or two) of wine, champagne or whatever - as suggested Michelle @holdingyourdrink

  26. Mika posted yesterday about his investment in the French CBD company DIVIE: Today I am happy to announce a new adventure and my new company! (Scroll down for English!)Aujourd’hui je rejoins l’aventure DIVIE, qui développe en France des produits de bien-être haut de gamme à base de CBD. J’ai pu me rendre compte lors de mes tournées des bienfaits de cette molécule qui apporte un nouvel équilibre dans nos vies.J’ai donc décidé d’entrer au capital de @divieparis, cette jeune maison française afin d’en faire une référence européenne dans l’industrie du CannaBiDiol et du Bien-Être.I met Alexandre Perez, @divieparis founder a few months ago. I was moved by his story and by the ethics of his new brand. His dream to create a “french maison” that develops the highest quality CBD wellness products, with a focus on quality and transparency, entirely Made In France.Having used CBD for a while now, especially whilst on tour, I am very aware of its benefits. So I decided to invest in the company alongside Alexandre, to help him and his team make @divieparis become a European reference in the CBD and wellbeing industry.📸 @francescoprandoni The company's website is http://divie.fr (in French and English). As there were some dicussions and opinions about this on the Mikasounds updates thread, I started an extra thread for this, so you can continue talking about it here.

  27. I am so sorry about this, but I am out of time. I leave for the airport in a few hours and still have a million things to do. Will try to sort flowers for Ida out once I'm in Paris! Thanks everybody! See (a lot of) you real soon!

  28. I think it's a good point what someone said here that Max has his own fan club, and is "just" a band member, while Ida is an old friend of Mika who has been with him since the beginning. I suppose that's where my feeling comes from that when there's money left we might consider getting something for Ida, but not for Max. I think the Max FC consists mostly of Mika fans, and I'm sure some of them will be going to those gigs - I'd say it's up to them to get something for him. Anyway, I definitely wouldn't want to make Mika's bouquet smaller. If we had the budget to fill his whole room with flowers, I would.

  30. Apparently the song was first used on the soundtrack of a softcore pseudo-documentary (reality show) about the sex lives of people in Sweden, for a sauna scene. Yeah, I'm going to assume Mika's reference point is The Muppet Show.

I hope you finaly found a solution to watch "The voice" I gave you all my ideas , can't help more . We're triying our best here to help each others , but we are not a "hotline" and there is no guarantee that we'll have an answer for every single question. And there's no guarantee that the answers will be what you expected. Sorry about that but ......getting angry doesn't solve anything....

  34. OK, I didn't mean for this to cause any division amongst fans! Obviously, in a perfect world with unlimited funds, we would be as generous as possible to everyone! I think the arrangement for Mika is pretty well set; I don't really want to scale it back at this point as I'm supposed to pay today. I can ask the florist how much it will cost to add on a few things -- I suppose we could do a single rose for Ida and maybe a buttoniere for Max? I can't remember - has he had one at the previous symphonic concerts? But to be honest, my opinion is that the people who gave money already, gave it with the intent that it should go to something for Mika, not other people, and I would prefer to honor that. After hearing from many of you here, I get the feeling maybe you feel that way as well?

  36. I will not be on the Saturday meeting. But anyway - the heart made with hands is the easiest to do and if some fans start to do it the audience will follow. As for glittering hearts - I agree - better not to bring anything that can be left after the show. I will have my heart (not glittering) on my chest

  37. The program with the setlist is available as PDF download on the Philharmonie website. Please don't post it here though until we're sure it's really supposed to be there and not just accidentially leaked. And even then, maybe it's better to open a new thread for posting / talking about the setlist, as some fans prefer it to be a surprise. Thank you.

  39. Good news for those who want to bring their kids: We got the info from Mika's team that there are NO age restrictions for the concerts. But anyone over 12 will have to show a health pass / negative test. And they also said we will have to wear a mask the whole time inside.

  40. That's why I'm not a big fan of surprises - he'll completely mess up my carefully arranged outfit plans. I had a voucher, so the 200€ are ok. If it fits. If it doesn't, I'll send it back and buy clothes for my kids from the voucher instead, and/or some nice shirts for everyday use - that's a lot less stressful. 😅 And just to make that clear to everyone who just joined the conversation and maybe doesn't know much English: We're joking, Mika hasn't bought a dress for me. On to a different topic (the one about my outfit stresses me, lol! 😅): I thought yesterday how nice it'd be to hear Sound of an Orchestra with an actual orchestra. Would be a fab opportunity to play it live, if he ever plans to.

  45. I wouldn't count on 2 M&G's anyway, we can be lucky if we get one. In Montreal he only did one after the last show, in Florence not at all, afaik. He also was at an art exhibition: He really must've missed the travelling, seems he's catching up now with all the missed travels from last year. Love how happy he looks. When I saw that pic of him in the blue suit, I first thought it was from 2015. This art exhibition wouldn't be my cup of tea, from what I can see in the article that's linked in the tweet. But I like the painting that Mika is photographing.

  46. I don't think it's his home studio. I think it's a studio in Paris where he already was some time ago (story with moustache and last advert for indeed). In Tuscany the walls aren't blue.
