  1. If you wish to discuss the live stream concert in a lot more detail with a full review please use this space to do so! Here's mine. As I said before it's quite long I would have logged in straight after the concert but I got so many notifications on twitter afterwards that I spent a while there and then went to bed (I was very tempted to watch the whole thing again and probably will later), starting to feel PMD now . Anyway consider this my first concert review! It's quite long and took me over an hour to write! First of all my bud

  2. What a show! I've watched it several times now myself -- and a few parts more than others. That reworking of Promiseland?! Amazing. For those who didn't hear, Mika appeared on Twitch TV with Manuelito from X Factor for a few minutes after the first broadcast finished. (Manuelito was hosting his own benefit for Beirut in support of Mika.) I managed to record it: https://youtu.be/UHyWMhyBdTQ

  3. That's true - 500,000€ combined with nearly 200,000£ on the GoFundMe page... plus we don't know yet what the deal with the VOD people brought in, plus t-shirt sales... I think the grand total will be a very respectable number! I think there are two ways to measure the success of program -- the monetary success, as we have discussed, and then also the artistic success, which I think we all agree on, too. Clearly we all had some sort of emotional response not only to the music, but to the stories of the people affected by the explosion and its aftermath, and that's exactly what I thi

  4. In 2010 I travelled from London via Cyprus to Beirut and then on to Baalbeck, and was sitting in these grounds waiting for the gates to open and Mika's gig to start. In 2020 I have travelled 3 metres from the sofa to the table,. and am waiting for Mika's virtual gig to start!!

  5. Listening to Danna’s and Mika’s cover of “It must have been love”. It’s like a warm hug from afar. A warm hug from Mika! The emotional response I’m reading on here from everyone is enormous. And you are all right, what Mika wanted to achieve was exactly that. Empathy and awareness through beautiful music and collaborations. And a connection, not only with the people of Beirut, but with everyone of us as individuals.

  7. I've deleted the video links here @Starlight. Please don't share such links here (or anywhere, really), it might not be a DVD (yet), but we should treat it like one, because obviously they're still collecting funds for Beirut with it (via French VOD). And who knows what other plans they have with it. It's a very special video, one that Mika, his team and many others put a lot of work and heart in, and although *we* might buy everything he releases, there's enough people on the internet who wouldn't. So I find it sad that there's so many videos of the gig circulating on the web, and

  9. I have to admit I downloaded the video too before it was shut down because I wanted to rewatch the gig today and I wasn't sure how long the link will work so I'm the last to judge even though I was going to use it just for my own purposes, I wouldn't upload it anywhere... But I think YouTube isn't the best platform if you don't want people to get the video because it's so easy to convert it. It was just a matter of time till someone uploads the whole gig. However, I still hope there will be an official way to buy it too, I would still pay for it.

  10. That was a most beautiful, amazing, wonderful and magical Mika concert I've ever been to. What a night! So pleased I can watch it again and again because I really don't want it to end. I've written a full review, would it be ok to start a new topic in the concert review section or shall I post it here. It is quite long...

  13. That was so intense... I can't put all my emotions into words, so here's a shortlist of them during the gig: (Mika on stage) (I cried like a baby during Any Other World) (that's literally me after Ice Cream... Such a Mika moment. ) Also I hope he will release this version of Promiseland, I love it! And I would really like to buy the concert on DVD...

  15. Even if it's apparently more Danna's song, I really love this collaboration. The electronic chorus is the only thing I don't like that much, but I love Mika's lower voice, and their voices really fits together. It's the song who grew the more after the first listening. I really like the song itself, and I'm in love with the lyrics. Of course it's not the real sens of its, but as an autistic person, I can totally relate and these lyrics totally speaks to, and even FOR me. It's really something I often feel... I find this whole song comforting.

  16. I was not expecting such a ballad seeing the kind of songs Danna sings but this song has left me speechless. It's a sweet and touching ballad. Mika's voice sounds sweet, like a whisper and fits perfectly with Danna's voice. Mika is so sweet singing in Spanish makes the language more beautiful. The only thing that doesn't convince me is that bit of the chorus that is like electonic and I don't know if I'll get used to it with time but in general I think the song can have a very good acceptance and Mika can even appeal to those who are not his fans. As for the video, I find it fantastic, and

  22. I actually first thought it was some comment that had just been posted and youtube was showing it in the video for some reason. When watching it for the 2nd time I didn't notice it, guess I was distracted that moment. When I read the report here in the first post, I believed that it was by Andy, shame it isn't... tho who knows - tbh I believe more that this was on purpose than that the open zipper during Ice Cream was accidental. And that gets me to my report about the gig. I liked the start with Origin. Happy Ending made me cry for the first time, really beautiful. AOW was aweso

  23. From the interviews Mika had recently given, I realized that I Love Beirut would be a special event, but I never thought it would be so extraordinary. It was the best birthday present I ever got. It was wonderful to see Mika, Wouter, Max and Tim on stage. Mitch was not there, but Fabio was very good and replaced him without problems. I loved the Arabic version of Promiseland and the duet with Danna Paola in It must have been love. After seeing and seeing this show several times I can say that it was perfect. Congratulations to Mika and all his staff. I hope he does more live streaming, with hi

  24. Mika chatted a bit with a fan on Twitter. It started by him RTing this: Then he commented here - I think it refers to some of Mika's vocabulary inventions on Xfactor, but no idea what they're actually talking about, can anyone clear it up? In another thread the guy asked Mika (in Italian) to invite him for dinner, and Mika, switching to English, answered: continued: and: Lol, I love this, can he do things like that more often please?

  25. How could I forget that he sang Happy Ending and Tiny Love? Both were absolutely astounding performances too! Admittedly after going to an actual real life concert I tend to have a day where my mind goes blank simply because I've taken so much in from what I've experienced. Didn't think that would happen with this! I was also really tired afterwards, it's not like I had to queue or stand in a crowd for hours but I got that kind of tiredness where I couldn't actually fall asleep for ages!

  33. Ah, and he said that Any Other World will be part of the show. It's not one of my fave Mika songs, but I had hoped he'd sing it, as I connect it to Lebanon more than any other Mika song, because of Rafa's story. And the lyrics also fit so well to these times. I'm sure that'll be an emotional moment.

  34. Indeed. In a way I'm a bit sad that the "intimate gig" is getting so huge, because more guests means less Mika for us... but of course I know that this is not about us, it's a gig for Beirut and not primarily for his fans, and to reach the goal of collecting lots of money for that, it's the bigger, the better. And if it's anything like Stasera Casa Mika, I'm sure I'll love it. I hope a little bit though that he enjoys it enough to feel motivated to do it again with just him playing for his fans, I think even in a livestream it makes a difference whether it's a million people watch

  35. I'm kinda glad I donated early on, I must admit I'd feel a bit insignificant among all those high amounts with just a regular donation. But maybe it was on purpose that they waited with those, to avoid some fans thinking "my 10€ wouldn't make any difference, so I won't bother to donate", as of course every donation counts, no matter how small or big.

  36. Two songs with Danna! Do we think she'll sing one of her own, one of Mika's together or another new collab? It's so close now, I'm so excited! Did a snack shop a couple of days ago and put all the snacks at the back of a cupboard so I'm not tempted to eat them before then, I have specifically chosen food that doesn't make a loud crunch! Nothing is going to disturb this concert for me!

  37. I hadn't thought about that, but I like your interpretation. It makes sense, as in the scene with Soprano and Mika there also are the fruits (pears or quinces), so they certainly do play an important role. After writing my thoughts on the video here, I remembered something Mika said at the gig in Zurich, before Lollipop, that nursery rhymes are meant to tell you that you die if you get what you want. I think he says that more often, but that was the latest event where I understood him, as he was talking English. That, and then his and Soprano's little dance remind me of the talk b

  38. @mellody Bits of Mika speaking Spanish Mika: Hello, good morning. You have a lot of energy in the morning. This song started having a coffe. I'm nervous speaking Spanish with you. Hola Lucrezia, encantado. Danna asks him to speak in Spanish to her fans and Mika says again he is so nervous to speak in Spanish with her. I would like to speak more but says I speak a Spanish with a French accent. I have a house in Miami and I speak 90% in Spanish there because I must do it. But when I'm in Italia I start mixing both languages and then I speak "spaliano" Says to Danna that

  39. No wonder it's such a bad edit! I've just watched the actual one and it's much better! I really like it. It's quite simple yet effective and makes me like the song more. I hope Mika does more Spanish songs in the future! I think the reason why I didn't like it at first is because I didn't know much about Danna before now, and I realise it's not a Mika song, it's completely hers with Mika as a guest. Their voices do work well together too

  49. Of course, but that's not new. No one knows at this point if these festivals can take place due to Covid, and he won't commit to it if it's not sure. When the situation is clear again, that the pandemic is under control so it's possible to make plans again, he'll do gigs again. If that is already next summer, which I doubt, I think he might be doing some stuff short notice. But right now it's just too early to make plans for gigs and festivals with a crowd of several thousand.
