  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. 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. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Electric energy in Brooklyn tonight! Mika is so comfortable in his skin and in his songs, and he shared that with us tonight. Some thoughts in no particular order: In the intro, there is a recording of Mika talking all about love: how love created the universe, and lit up the sun, and how the sun created all of us with its yellow light. During this recording the band is all on stage waiting, and you don't see Mika at all, and then he just runs on all at once! Red! Suit! Frilly! Shirt! CURLS!!! And Velcro Shoes???? Dear Jealousy was the second song he played (I think) -- befor

  9. Mika quote of the evening, before he got in the car: "see you soon with new music!" - and he looked really happy and excited. I asked him about the tour for next year, but he can't say anything yet - just that it's "a lot". I guess the Voice recording was nice too, though I have no comparison to others - I did enjoy myself, and others who are there more often said it was a really good one. But let's face it, I didn't travel to Paris for that, but to see Mika, and that was worth it. He even dug out a few German words for me. Fangurl mode, lol. ... I'm off to bed now, early t

  10. Hello, everyone! Just a quick report from Cloud Nine -- that's where I am on this morning after the amazingness that was last night! Yes, I am fangirling big time! You'll see some of my photos on my Instagram @dcdeb52 and on the MFC's Insta and stories @mikafanclub Lighting was pretty awful for photos from where I was standing -- at times I felt like *I* was in the spotlight more than Mika! Anyhow, the show was absolutely amazing. Yes, I'm a fan, I'm supposed to say that, but Mika was overflowing with joy last night and it spilled out onto all of

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. For the longest time I've had the thought that I wanted someone to write about Mika, this fandom, and Casa Mika/the impact of Casa Mika. I finally thought, no one else is going to write it, so I will! I have a tumblr called "Bad Bad Movies" which I started to write reviews and articles about movies and TV shows I love. I really love bad old sci fi films, so that's what I named my blog. I've got some posts about bad sci fi in my drafts, but this is my first post because I felt like it was just inside me and I had to get it out. I really love writing and loved writing papers for my University cl

  15. That's complicate. I'm trying to tell what I felt/understood in the past 3 years, as an external person before, and then as a member. I don't know how or if this could help, as is not only about the site itself, but about the FC in general. I hope not to be misunderstood, but I'm going to be frank. I honestly didn't want to sign up at first. I read on the net about bad behaviours from people from MFC, and that on the site everybody act like friends, and then in person they treat you very badly. As I continued using MFC as a visitor, I considered joining anyway

I had seen that our awesome MFC fairy ticket was offering two pairs tickets to go to The Voice but I had to be sure to be able to go (which is always complicated as I live with a whimsical pumpkin) I was dying to see Mika again as I hadn't seen him since Bobital (on stage) and I really wanted to see him and hopefully be able to talk with him again Before I decided to enter I asked my daughter if she would go with

  21. Hi all, This morning I called ProOffice in The Netherlands and they were amazed by the amount of orders. They will send every one who ordered a mail, regarding shipping costs and the time of delivery. They will ship to any country. If I can help with anything, like address etc, just ask and I can help. Maybe I can give an example: Voornaam: Ingrid (surname) Achternaam: Luberti (backname) Straatnaam: Kapteynstraat (streetname) Huisnr: 107 (house number) Toev: - (maybe app number in cause you live in a flat) Plaatsnaam: Hilversum (town) Land:

  22. By now, many of you will have read the very sad news of the passing of one of Mika Fan Club's original members, FREDDIESDOUBLE, or as he was known in real life David Bellamy. David was a very welcoming presence here on MFC, especially in the early days, and he was instrumental in shaping this place. We worked together very closely for a long time, trying to make Mika Fan Club the community it has become today. I'm very, very sad to hear of his untimely death at such a young age. Words fail me, really. His memory here at Mika Fan Club will surely live on.

  23. Many years ago, a rather odd animation with a silly song "Lollipop" was shared around by my furry friends. It was quite a hit in the community, but it seems most thought it was just an animation project that someone had managed to make a catchy song to. Including me and my wife. At one point around a year ago, we even added it to one of our Spotify playlists. We somewhat managed to still thing this was a silly "made for a fun animation". But fun songs are important, and a couple of weeks ago, I decided to see if the creator of this melody had made other fun things that we could pos

Anyway consider this my first concert review! It's quite long and took me over an hour to write! First of all my bud

  25. 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

I was in the front row so I was definitely filmed for that, look out guys... I have never been to such an incredible show. Like it not just because I love Mika so much, he just put on such a great performance and the crowd echoed the energy right back. It was ecstatic. It was more than I was hoping for. I was a complete mixture of emotions all day, and it all came to a boiling point when Mika came to the st

  30. This news kind of hit me like a steam train, I knew he was ill, and that he was pretty bad, but always hoped that he would rally and pull out of it. Sadly, that was not to be. I first met this force of nature in Birmingham, 17th May 2007, at my first Mika gig. He was so bouncy all day in the queue, we got separated in the venue, but met afterwards outside, and he invited the very first MFC pic with Mika in (who told us the best way to pose for a photo was to say 'potato', cue 20 people shouting potato while the pic was taken ?) We met many times down the years, he led us astray at hi

We didn't stand in the queue at first, but hoped we could see Mika arrive, so we could hand him the MFC yearbook, which I had brought - as we weren't sure to get a chance after the show. There were 3 possible entrances for him to arrive, and after going back and forth for a while and looking for a restaurant/cafe in between, we finally decided for one of the gates and sat down on a concrete barrier next to i

  34. I'm in love with this song ❤️ I love the lyrics and think it works more than perfectly as a soundtrack for a story that tells about young musicians but also as an independent song. I love the way he's using his voice, really love it, and I'm surprised people describe this song simple, for me it sounds very complicated to sing. There are also many details in it and that's something I don't connect with simplicity (which I wouldn't mind because I find simple and simplicity very positive words). I assume this song tells nothing about the album yet but they definitely should add it to at least som

  35. I think Siri explained a lot of things that I have seen too. But, and I’m going to put my marketer hat for a few minutes, there is not much that needs to be done within MFC as a site. Maybe better explain some sections, and there might be a few threads that are totally useless (such as the clubs for instance). what I think MFC needs is a complete awareness campaign: what it is, why it’s there, how it is run (and ultimately, who is behind it). It would even be better (and more effective/legitimate) if Team Mika (or even Mika himself) would participate in a way.

My intro looks the same every year but it's more true every year: When I went out for the last time last year I really didn't expect to ever come back on this set. Also this year no warm up for me, I jumped right through the Saturday Of Death with his infamous 2 sessions in a row... which to be honest was far less terrible than the years before: the four of them stayed relatively on form and coh

(and the rest of my Paris trip) Tuesday Morning 6:30 we got picked up, not by the mercedes we were told would be coming but in an Audi A8 (which incidentally is one of Dad’s favourite cars) which set the tone a bit for the rest of the trip. There were a few unexpected surprises, which I will be emailing Peugeot about tomorrow. We arrived at Heathrow over 3 hours before our flight was due and got through security pretty quickly so we went and watched the planes for a few hours. Plane journey was uneventful thank god, I haven’t flown much but Dad is big into

I'm planning to send some flowers on behalf of the MFC -- no one needs to contribute anything unless they'd like to, as there is some money in the MFC Paypal account that we can use for this purpose. If you'd like to add to the fund, however, you can Paypal to mfcregister@gmail.com Thanks. I'm sure that David would be pleased to see all his old friends returning to MFC!

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

  40. Is seeing Mika in the city where you live always transformative? Or is that just the city where I live? I moved to San Francisco four years ago, so I obviously haven't seen him since then. But I've also never seen him across the street from a favorite dinner spot, biking distance from my place, a bus ride home after... Somehow that made it even more special. My first Mika gig was also in the bay area, in Oakland in 2009. @sarac, @BangBangLou, Kira (@superstar) and I had a mini reunion in this queue which was amazing! I'll see y'all next time, and hopefully it won't be ano

It's always a great opportunity to meet other fans, to see the show behind the scenes and mostly to see our Mika at a close distance! It helps us while waiting for his next album and his new concerts (Mika told us the new tour should be in 2019). My lucky star helped me win MFC tickets for The Voice... It's such a wonderful show, but do you think I was looking at the candidates or watching the show ?? NO! I didn't want to lose a glimpse

But she wanted to thank us all for making a contribution to the charity she's chosen, which is St. Benedict Hospice. I tried to tell her how much David had meant to the Mika Fan Club and told her I would send a check straight away. And then she had to hang up. The entire call lasted about a minute, so I didn't get the chance to ask her about flowers. So, thanks to you all, I will be sending a check today. I'll tell you what the total is after I do a
