  1. As some of you might be aware, there were some issues with the fan actions at Mika's recent Paris show. The promoter, Alias Production, contacted us just before the gig started to let us know they had heard about the proposed fan actions and they felt the large amount of paper involved would possibly create too much of a mess, causing the venue to charge an additional cleaning fee, which in turn would be passed on to Mika Fan Club -- whether MFC had organized the fan action or not. Security therefore confiscated a lot of the paper that fans were trying to bring in. Mika

  2. Hi all! Wanted you all to know that we are looking at ways to improve the Mika Fan Club website -- we're 13 years old and we need a makeover! Well, maybe not a HUGE makeover, but we think there are lots of little things we can do to make things better around here. In addition, Invision, which hosts MFC and is the software that the site uses, will be releasing a new version with a number of improvements soon. So you might be noticing some changes to some things -- nothing major, don't worry! For one thing, we've made some tweaks to our home page here: ht

  3. Têtu interview in English Mika I wanted to love men freely Interview Romain Burrel Photos Jules Faure Stylist Nicolas Dureau We hadn't seen him in a long time. Mika takes advantage of his new album, My name is Michael Hoolbrook to speak freely about sex, show business and politics. And he speaks loudly. It's difficult to escape Mika. It's quite simple, the singer is everywhere. In a talent show on TF1, in commercials, in the evening news, in the subway. Omnipresent to the point of becoming invisible. Conscious of the fact that he might blend into the b

  4. We’re getting lots of questions about this show, so I thought I’d take a minute to clarify a few things. This is everything that I know so far. Please read on! 1️. The livestream will take place on 19th September and will be broadcast via YouTube. 2️. Mika will stream the show from his garden in Italy. In addition to music the show will feature footage from Lebanon, as well as the stories of people affected by the situation there. 3️. Tickets for the livestream will be available starting Monday 24th August via Ticketmaster. (Link: https://shops.ticketmasterpartners.com/mika-livestream)

  5. Hey everybody! Just a little warning that we will be running a fairly big upgrade on the site later tonight. I plan to run the upgrade tonight and expect it will take a while, maybe several hours. During that time MFC will be offline, but we will try to keep everyone updated on our social media accounts, on Twitter and Facebook. When you log in tomorrow, you'll find that a number of enhancements have been made. Many of these won't change your daily usage of the forums as we don't do e-commerce here, or they are functions for moderators. But there

  6. I have a few more answers about the livestream for you. You should be able to view "I Love Beirut" from anywhere -- it's a global livestream. So choose which time frame you'd like to watch the stream and get your ticket for that time. The link will be sent to you shortly before the livestream starts, just like it will for all others. You should be able to get tickets to multiple times, if you'd like to watch the stream more than once. However, as we discussed, only the stream that starts at CET will be truly live. The other times will be a rebroadcast of the

  7. I have never been able to write a report before as this was my first Mika event but i can write one now! i arrived at the venue kinda late - around 6:40 in the afternoon- because of traffic in London. It took us a while to find the correct line but we found it eventually. There were a few people trying to buy tickets from people in the queue and i was looking out for some friends i was hoping to meet that i had been speaking to on twitter. i was very nervous in London, because my shirt and bowtie kinda made me stand out and London isnt the safest city in the world.

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

  10. Aww that story about him and Andy! Quick summary: Mika came out of a bad relationship with that guy who threw him out at 4am in Shepherd's Bush, the story he told in London. The next day, he met Andy in a pub, and when they separated, Andy told him he wants to spend the rest of his life with him. Mika wasn't interested, but Andy believed in it so much that it was enough for both of them. Well done Andy!! When I read some of Mika's answers, I think Andy must have really strong nerves to stay with Mika for all those years! Seems Mika knows what he has in him though. Makes me v

  11. Sooo long night Missed the last tube up north so ended in a random Uber with a rather crazy driver Me and my boyfriend got there about 11:30am and join the normal queue as we didn’t know if we’d have a priority line. No one offered to “hand in a number” or what so ever to us. About an hour later security came in to organize people around and separate standing/ balcony/ priority. As I knew I am with O2 I joined the priority. Most of the ladies there did not have the right of being in priority as they didn’t meet criteria, but at no point you saw me complaining or reporting

  12. I think Mika is always very intentional about what he does -- I'm sure he thought carefully about what he wanted to say, and wanted to have meaningful links and attractive graphics to go with his post, and that took time. I don't think his post was a reaction to all the backlash. Just my opinion, of course.

You can call me Laurel (which, just to avoid misunderstandings, is (sadly) not my given name; I'm not going to mention my given name if I don't have to, because I hate that name).

  15. It’s been over three long years since I last saw Mika (at the London Palladium) and the wait was all compensated for by the man last night. A simple, music show, no gimmics, just Mika and his incredible band. He sang all I thought he would and more, I think for the first time I didn’t feel like there were some songs missing from my dream set list Me and my friend who has travelled all the way from Egypt to see Mika, were around row 4-5 centre stage. By the end of Relax I thought I had no more energy for dancing and singing and then a true miracle happened... Mika came down during B

  17. Google translator MIKA in Athens during quarantine days The British-Lebanese popstar Mika stayed in Athens during the quarantine and talks to Athens Voice about his experience. In the early days of quarantine, going through thousands of photos on social media of artists and non-artists, we were surprised to see one of the most positive and open-hearted pop stars, the British-Lebanese Mika being photographed on an Athenian balcony, telling Athens how he goes home, reading, cooking and enjoying the city. After posting on the Athens Voice site and s

  18. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this gig, because at Mika's last concert in Zürich in 2015 the queuing and entering the venue was very disorganised and chaotic. It turned out that this time there weren't nearly as many people who arrived early (maybe because the weather was pretty cold), so it was much easier to get a good place. The concert itself was amazing. Mika was in a really good mood and he smiled a lot, even though you could hear that his voice wasn't at its best. He was very happy and touched when he saw our glowstick hearts during Tiny Love. As you can see from the videos

  19. I've only just arrived home and I'm exhausted after my busy weekend, but I have enough energy to write a little report about my amazing experience at this show! This was my second Mika gig, and I was very excited to see him again. It had been a long three years since I'd seen him at the Palladium, so I was really grateful that I could attend this show. I travelled to London with my friend on Friday and went sightseeing on Saturday, but obviously Mika was the highlight of my weekend! We started to queue at 5pm. Met some really lovely fans in the queue and had a great

Smiling, funny, cheerful, elegant, genuine...we want to make compliments rain on Mika like the multicolored confettis rain on his audience at the end of his shows. Dressed in a dandy velvet suit, the American - Lebanese singer orders a draft beer in a street café in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, which leads to lots of smiles and "Welcome to our neighborhood!" from the inhabitants who recognize the

  22. 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

  23. Exactly. Mika controls his Twitter and Instagram account 99% of the time. Occasionally some of the more "advertisement" type posts might be written by his team, but otherwise, believe me, it's Mika. As for yesterday's post/tweet, I think it may well have been from him, actually. It's not the first time that he's said something like this and upset fans from other countries/groups -- I'm sure it wasn't an intentional thing, it's just that this competition was from Ticketmaster ITALIA, so it's natural that he thinks only Italian fans were involved. I'm not sure why anyone would get upset over t

  26. I just wanted to do a quick post to say how AMAZING the show was!! I loved it as soon as Mika came on stage I burst into tears of joy! Also when he came out the stage door! He came up to me and asked what my name was (As I was crying) and then said “Hi Emmy” and stroked my hair! We then got a picture together and he signed an autograph for me, l loved all the fan actions and the atmosphere was just the best! It was also amazing to be so close the front of standing!!! I can’t wait until I see him next hopefully in the near future

  27. Ok, I think I'm ready to describe this concert in words. We all waited so much for this first performance, starting the "Revelation Tour". But this concert was a little different from those that will follow. Due to the fact that Shepherd's Bush Empire can only accommodate 2'000 people, Mika did not show us the new scenography. But there were a lot of colorful lights that created a great atmosphere. Yes, colors are Mika's specialty. Since I had a place on the first balcony, I did not stand in a long queue, which began to set up in front of the building very early in the

  28. This is heartbreaking. That you can't be with your loved ones in such a situation must be the absolute worst, I actually have tears in my eyes thinking of it. Joannie is a fighter, I hope so much that they'll all get through this crisis and can hug each other again full of joy when they finally meet again. After a day of successfully convincing myself that everything's OK and he's just taking a break, this morning I got worried again. I thought, at the last cooking show he said how these make him happy... and then suddenly he would stop?! I spent all day trying to push away the t

  31. Just a little update on this from Strasbourg: When he came outside for signing stuff and quick chats, I gave him a letter, and he asked me whether it's a happy letter, as he'd have no tolerance for... (anything else). Actually he stopped the sentence after "no tolerance", because I had already answered that it's a happy letter. Anyway "no tolerance" was a very clear and strong statement, also the way he said it. Maybe he even said "absolutely", can't remember, but in any case it came across that way. My interpretation of this is that with all the sh*t that has happened in his own life in recen

  32. My thoughts about this are also quite complicated. On the one hand, I don't think Mika owes us anything (well, except for the concert that we paid for -- and he definitely delivers that!), and I wouldn't say that meeting fans after gigs is a part of his job. It's a nice bonus, but not something that should be expected of him, especially after putting so much of his energy in performing on stage. On the other hand, I can definitely understand that fans are disappointed because he so rarely does M&Gs these days, especially those who were used to him doing them regularly in the past. I have o

We arrived from Barcelona at the day of the gig and I ended up getting number 19 which gave me hope for a good spot, yet I was a little worried about front row because this number could be exactly where the border to second row is. However, we had a good time meeting old and new friends and laying in the sun to fight the cold in the shadow. In the contrary to Barcelona where everything was very smooth and the venue-staff were really, really organized, in Madrid we didn't get to see security until only shortly before th

There were a few other minor problems, and I have a message into our Tech Support people for help with a few things, but overall it went fairly quickly and smoothly. I have gone through the steps to install the mobile app, but apparently you have to wait until you're approved for that -- I guess maybe because it's a beta test, still. So we'll see how long approval takes. We'll be spending some time this weekend ironing out the wrinkles, so please bear with us. We hope to ge

  40. I’m from Mexico, 41 years old and I have to confess that I’m a new Mika fan. I’ve never been a fan person, I don’t remember to follow any artist in particular before, so it is very surprising for me... But there’s something about Mika that is really endearing and lovable, and it is beyond his talent... He’s a talented artist no question about it, but it’s more than that, he seems so authentic and so humble about his success. Last September he was on a radio show here in Mexico, he was so down to earth that he got my attention. But It was until quarantine that I started learning about hi

  49. In the press conference in Milan he said that it's about the addiction of a friend of his, who had a relapse. He wrote this song to explain the pain and the darkness of this situation, both for the person and for those around them, writing that God is in everything to stress out the fact that we still can find light in the hardest things. With this story in mind, "is that why you let the devil in?" makes total sense. Unfortunately I'm not quoting him, I can't find the stories anywhere, but it's more or less what he meant.
