  1. Hello from the Washington DC area, and welcome Ben and husband! Sorry I didn't make it to the London show - looks like it was fabulous! So glad that you had the chance to see Mika live, and that you found your way here! We're hoping for more US shows in 2020, so keep your eyes peeled.
  2. Wanted to stop by this thread sooner to thank everyone who attended the party and contributed for the flowers! Everyone was so generous that we had enough to buy flowers as well as a nice bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne. We know Mika received the flowers: But I haven't been able to confirm the champagne. In any case, thank you all for making the weekend event a success. I'm totally gutted that I couldn't be there with you, but will do my best to catch up later in the tour... and will definitely be there next year in London! Mika's Facebook page has asked if we would send over some photos and videos from the party, so I will do that - I hope no one will mind seeing their photos posted over there! If it's an issue, let me know! Thanks.
  3. Hi Caroline, Please visit this link -- this is where fans will be talking about going to the show in Aix. TRANSLATION: Hello I go to Mika's concert in Aix on November 18th; are there organized surprises? we could have hearts and the message "we missed you" also like in London. it would be very pleasant and touching for him. or other idea? What do you think ? thank you for your return, I can not wait to be there. I will also do Bordeaux. to my great regret can not be at Bercy ....
  4. Hi Phoebe, I answered you on Instagram as well -- Mika IS going to return to London in 2020, he's mentioned it in several interviews. We just don't know when. We just have to sit here and wait for those dates!
  5. @Anna Paula I don't think it's a good idea for this show, as it's been sold out for so long -- and you have seen how quickly extra tickets are selling here. If you buy one at the door you run a higher risk of getting ripped off. A Japanese fan is selling a ticket right now in the extra ticket thread -- you may want to try to grab that one!
  6. Hi and welcome to MFC. It’s very sweet that you want to so something like this for your girlfriend. It’s usually possible to meet Mika after a show, just by waiting at the artist entrance for a while afterward. I guess you want something more special though. I‘m not sure about getting a message or on stage. Mika gets a lot of requests like this and he just can’t do this for everyone. I’ll pass your request on to his team though and we‘ll see.
  7. Hi Matt! I'm waving to you also from the East Coast of the US, Washington DC area. Welcome aboard, we're glad you're here. You're joining at an exciting time, what with Mika's new album and the tour and all! And if you're not too shy to share -- who is your mom? I've been here a while and may remember her!
  8. Two things: 1) Has anything been decided definitively about the fan action? It would be nice if we could do something, but as I read through this thread quickly just now it didn't seem that any one idea was decided on? 2) If you're planning to attend this gig, please be sure to RSVP here: And if you're planning to attend the MFC gathering the DAY BEFORE the gig, please reply to the poll so I can have a more accurate count. Also, if you replied to the poll before and you are now NOT coming to the party, can you please remove yourself? Again, I need a more accurate number of how many there will be. Thank you!
  9. @Anna Ko Kolkowska Anna it costs A LOT more than £20 -- it's probably closer to £100 when you include tip. Plus, many cabs these days insist on cash, especially at night they won't take credit cards and say their card machine is broken. Very annoying. Uber is a lot cheaper -- you can catch Uber in the parking garage across the street from the airport terminal. It's marked, but it's a little confusing. When I was there in July the pickup point was on the fourth floor, but you never know -- they may change it, so you'll need to check once you get there. You can ask an attendant who should be able to direct you. Taking the Piccadilly line is the cheapest way and it's direct to Kensington. It is very easy unless you have a lot of luggage. Some of the tube stops have stairs, but no escalator or elevator (like Gloucester Road). Which tube stop are you going to? Also, if your flight is delayed and you take a while going through customs and passport control, you may be too late to take the tube -- they stop after midnight or so, I think. You can check this site: https://tfl.gov.uk/plan-a-journey/ Which day are you arriving? Maybe there are others who are arriving about the same time as you and you can all travel together?
  10. Yes, totally! As I said above, you don't need to come to the party to contribute for the flowers -- when I get the notice on Paypal, I'll add your name to the list. No, I'll get notices from Paypal, so you should be OK! Karin took all the words right out of my mouth! But if all else fails, yes you can give me the money in person -- I just would like to avoid carrying lots of cash around if at all possible.
  11. Hello, everyone! Well, we have finally nailed down the details for our pre-show party! We have booked a pub called The Pembroke near Earl's Court. WHO: MFC! WHAT: PRE-LONDON SHOW PARTY WHERE: The Pembroke 261 Old Brompton Road London SW5 9JA WHEN: SATURDAY, 9 NOVEMBER. 5 P.M. TO 8 P.M. COST: £10/person. This goes toward the hire fee for the space and finger foods. DRINKS ARE EXTRA AND ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! We also would like to send Mika flowers from the fan club as a whole, to celebrate the start of the Revelation Tour. If you would like to contribute toward flowers, you can tack on a few extra pounds to your party contribution. So that we don't have to deal with collecting all that money on the day, we'd appreciate it if you could pay via the MFC's Paypal account if at all possible. If you don't have Paypal, or don't have a friend who can send your payment for you, don't worry. We will accept cash at the party! Also, you don't have to be attending the party to participate in the flowers -- you can send your contribution via our Paypal account, too, and I'll be sure to add your name to the note that we send along. The MFC's Paypal account is: mfcregister@gmail.com For your information, here are the finger foods that will be available: SEAFOOD PLATTER (we've pre-ordered 1 of these) Garlic King Prawns Beer Battered Haddock Fillets Crispy Salt & Pepper Squid Smoked Salmon Bites Crab Scotched Egg Cocktail & Tartar Dip MEAT PLATTER (we've pre-ordered 2 of these) Chorizo Chicken Skewers Mini Burgers Lamb & Courgette Skewers Beef Brisket Croquettes Ranch & BBQ Dip GARDEN PLATTER (we've pre-ordered 2 of these) Olives Greek Salad Hummus with Carrots & Celery Cheese & Onion Tarts Halloumi Fritters Tzatziki & Pitta We can change these pre-orders up to a week before the event, so please let us know what you think! What am I forgetting? Any questions? Let us know in the thread or DM me! Just 3 weeks to go! 🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️
  12. I was just coming here to say this! I agree, Dee, "can't" makes much more sense. It's hard to hear in the recording, so hopefully Mika will do this live soon and we'll be able to hear better.

    It's grown on me as well, but not my favorite either. Curious, what's the worst song on the album, in your opinion?
  14. I think like many of Mika's songs, there's a duality to Platform Ballerinas. By the way, I don't own a pair, but I kind of like these Platform Ballerinas I could certainly use the added height! LOL! Maybe I should get some! Anyhow, I think the song could simply be about a woman (like me) who doesn't care what anyone thinks when she's out dancing and having a good time. I'm doing it not for you but for me, and that doesn't make me any less of a girl, or make what I'm doing less valid. And as for "she's dancing in her kitchen" that just means she's dancing like she's right at home, with no one watching -- she's being herself, regardless of what anyone else says or thinks. I get that. So if I sing along even if I don't know the words or if I dance until my hair is a mess, who cares? On the other hand, I think this could also be about a transgender person, or maybe even a drag queen as someone else said. Think about it: Don't believe everything you see. A girl doesn't wake up with makeup and wearing her heart on her sleeve (in other words, being obvious to all). And even if a person DOES wake up with makeup on, does that make them a girl? "It better be yourself that you're making -- because every other girl out there is taken." In other words, everyone else already has their own identity so be yourself, don't try to be somebody else, somebody you're not. "Blowing up her lips to make them best to kiss that won't even help to get a guy to kiss her better And that don't make her less of a girl" Blowing up her lips -- enhancing her lips with collagen, with exaggerated lipstick even? That won't even help to get a guy to kiss her better -- having "better" lips won't make any guy kiss her more than he would otherwise, right? And that don't make her less of a girl -- she's still a girl, whether she's kissed by a guy or not, whether she wears makeup or not, whether she wears a dress or not, whether she dances like a fool or not... no matter what she looks like, or does, or how people react to her, or what they think of her, she's still a girl. Even if she was born a boy. That's what I think, anyhow. Or... it could just be a feel-good dance party song. 💃 👯‍♀️👯‍♂️🥳 🎉 🕺 In any case, it's one of my faves on the album... but who am I kidding? I could say that about every song on the album!
