  1. 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

  2. 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)

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. Hi everyone! I was very lucky to be able to attend this special concert thanks to MFC I feel like it's the kind of events that totally deserves that I take a little bit of time to write about it. Even just for my own memories. So as was said before, when my friends and I decided we wanted to take a chance and attend whatever they were going to record that night, no one knew what we were signing for. For my part I was already too happy to know for sure that Mika would be there and I would be able to see him, even for one little song, after all these hard months. And

  9. 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

  10. Wow, so many thoughtful, well-considered posts here. It's very interesting to read such a variety of viewpoints. I was going to quote a lot of things, but there were so many comments that it got a bit awkward. So instead I'll just quote CJ here: This sums up quite nicely exactly how I feel about Mika and in a way also how I feel about this subject. As one of the older fans, both in age and in length of time on the forum, I've seen that sexualizing pop stars, sports stars, all manner of celebrities actually, has been going on forever. I doubt that

  11. Hello lovelies ! I think the most important things about the show were already said or wrote. I am still over the moon to be honnest and I don't really what to write or even HOW. Also, I have a BIG problem about being happy for what is happening to me when other people would have been so so happy and deserves to had the chance that I had. But I really want to share this experience with all of you and try to give a little bit of magic. Everything happened so, SO fast. Me and @Laurya won our tickets. We bring my brother and our friend Laura with us. I'm not from Paris but fro

  13. 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. 🤷‍♀️

  14. Hi everyone, I'm new here! I'm also really terrible at writing introductions! Sorry for that! 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). I'm 24 years old, and I'm from Germany, where I'm currently studying English and German at university; I also write and draw as a hobby, and I play a couple of musical instruments (accordion, guitar, ocarina, some ukulele, some tin whistle, can also kinda play the recorder if I have to) and enjoy singing (but bad

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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

  19. THE INTERVIEW; Mika: "Mediocrity makes manipulable: culture is liberation". Silvia Avallone "I sang in the reception of record companies, without ever reaching the upper floors". The dyslexia and the loss of my voice, the harassment at school, the "teleportation bubble", the kidnapping of my father. Tormented and happy story of a pop star I guess Mika, at the entrance of the hotel, just because I am waiting for him. The mask on his face and the hat with the visor make him almost unrecognizable. He approaches the thermoscanner, sanitizes his hands. The Covid danger

  21. 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

  23. 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

  25. On Wednesday 23 December, Mika will live stream on his Facebook page an intimate Christmas concert with a choir of singers for children in hospital. This is in support of Imagine for Margo fighting children's cancer and funding children's cancer research. Join us at 4pm French time (3pm UK time) on Mika's official Facebook page to be part of this really special Christmas moment. Tickets are free, in fact they're not even necessary as the Facebook live will be accessible to everyone all over the world! I know Eriko posted this in the Imagine for Margo thread, but I felt it needed it

  26. Hello ! Yes I have to admit it was a little bit of confusion. We didn't knew it will be a whole Mika show until the last moment. I thought it would have been the recording of one maybe two songs for the show "Versailles sur son 31" but when I received the invitation I started to question myself. Finally Mika recorded a whole show by himself and he was lucky and happy. So we were! I'm so sorry for all the confusion and for the people who weren't able to go. I know how hard it is to see people going to events and to be stuck at home. It's hard and painful and I was that girl for a very

I have worked in the media business for many years. I was an editor at Norways biggest site for kids a couple of years ago at Scandinavia Online (SOL) https://sol.no/. They got new owners and they decided not to produce their own content anymore. Just link to others. It sadly now has just become an aggregator for news. No own creativity!

  29. 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

  30. Good morning, all! Well, as you have discovered, the upgrade messed up our theme/templates a bit. 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

  31. Well, as you may have guessed, I was delayed by the announcement of the "I Love Beirut" livestream -- didn't want the site to be down when all of that happened. However, I am going to run the upgrade tonight, starting at 9 p.m. my time, which will be 3 a.m. for those of you on CET, 2 a.m. for the UK. As I said earlier, I anticipate the site to be down for a while -- but I hope it won't be too long, and that everything will go smoothly. Please keep your fingers crossed and hold a good thought! If there are any issues, we'll update you on Twitter and Facebook,

  32. 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

Us men, we're not as strong, we're very good at pretending to be strong, but we're actually aren't. Women keep the world spinning, they make men greater. It was like that in my family as well. Men come up with word 'today', women with the word 'tomorrow', because they can look further." ~MIKA~

They say the noise will chase away evil and misfortune. This New Year's Eve I kept up the tradition and we made some noise, a lot of noise. This firework show at the Palace of Versailles can’t erase the turbulent year we have had, however I hope it will set the tone for the year to come: hope and fantasy. It was a humbling experience putting the music together and performing under such a mass

These lyrics are slightly different than those I posted earlier on Instagram because, of course, I left someone out -- so sorry!

I’m actually Dutch, but found love in Germany and decided to follow my heart. Now we have three kids and a house with a garden, so I think we can say that worked out very well! I have recently rediscovered Mika as they played “Relax, take it easy” fairly often whenever I was in the store (the only trip outside of the home during this lockdown, so you can imagine that song spoke to me on various levels)

All I want for him is to put some happiness in his life and showing my story wasn't a good way to do that. I receive several message from people Who also are suffering and Who wants to help me.

Ow, I see me on this pics… I hate that but it's the price to pay for the first row, I suppose… So, so… It's time to return at the normal life… and it's hard… 😢 But the happiness is still there and the possibility of remembering too. I think I will already make a review, since I don't want to think of anything else now. And I just LOVE writing reviews. Last night was my fifth Mika's gig, and the first since 2015. It was already important just for that. But for me, it was even more : it was the first time I was alone, without my parents for an evening, after years of weakness
