    Marhaba MFC!

    Welcome to the Mika Fan Club, Eman! I don't recall ever seeing anyone from Jordan here, so I'm curious how you came to learn about him! And as others have said, there's lots of reading material here for you!
  2. I understand. I was meant to be in Toronto tonight as well. But there will be better days ahead, I just know it!
  3. Karin, I have changed both of these user names recently. 👍 If anyone else has a change, we would really like to limit that, because as Karin says it's confusing if you've made a lot of posts already, and just want to change on a whim. If, however, you've recently joined and realize you made a mistake in choosing your user name, do let us know!
  4. Hi Lauren! Nice to see you here! I'm in DC -- good to have another fan from USA on board!
  5. We're glad you found us, Tiffany! France has cancelled all large gatherings, including music festivals, until at least mid-July. Mika himself has said that the festival season is basically dead, so I don't think there's much chance of seeing perform this summer. But he said today during his Instagram Live that he has something coming up in America later this year, and also something that would take him to Europe... so we live in hope!
  6. Actually, I think my advice from 6 years ago still makes sense. "This is just a troll who is doing this for fun. The more you let this person know that you're upset by his/her posts, the more they will do it. I don't think they pose any real threat to anyone. The best thing to do is to block and ignore." Report it if you'd like, but Twitter doesn't always respond -- especially if the offending account isn't making death threats or suggesting anything violent -- so I find it better to just block such accounts. I'm pretty sure Mika won't even see these tweets -- and if he does, he's been online long enough to know to ignore them.
  7. This is just wrong. I'll let Mika's team know again about these issues.
  8. Hi @49neve I have contacted our Tech Support people to see what the issue is. We'll let you know when we get a resolution. Thanks.
  9. I do, too. Mika's team hasn't announced it officially, and Mika himself said that the festival season was basically dead this year. 🤷‍♀️
  10. 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 that, and try to pit the Italian fans against the French fans or the UK fans or the US fans, etc. Seems like someone just wanted to stir up some drama to me. 🤷‍♀️
  11. @Paoletta Mika is definitely the one who posts from his Twitter and Instagram accounts 99% of the time. Occasionally, some of the more "advertisement" type posts might be written by his team, but then he posts those himself.
  12. Also, if you're on your computer, if you type a colon : and the first few letters of what you think the emoji is called, a window will pop up with some choices for you. For example, type : shrug (without the space in between) and you'll get a window with a number of emojis to choose from. I'm not sure if this works on smartphones, I can't remember if I've ever tried it there. OK, I'll see what I can find out about a top of page arrow! 👍
  13. Yes, it's a replay of the September episode! But thanks for the heads up!
  14. Thanks, as always, Dee! You are AMAZING!
  15. I think I have it, but I need to go through the video I've recorded. I'll let you know!
  16. The chat we used to have was discontinued by our host, and they never offered an alternative. I think there are plug-ins available, but they would have to be purchased, and I'm not sure 1) how much they cost and 2) if Mika will pay for them. But I'll see about making a social feed as you described. That might be do-able. I'll look into it! Thanks.
  17. It is with an extremely heavy heart that due to the dangers posed by COVID-19 we are forced to cancel the upcoming North and South America tour dates. Our priority here is for everyone to always feel safe, and given the influx of rapidly changing information every day due to COVID-19, we are left with no choice. Refunds are available at the point of purchase. Stay safe and hope to see you all soon. The post Important Announcement appeared first on Mika Sounds. View the full article
  18. No, this festival date has NOT been officially confirmed yet. And this is probably not the time to expect any official announcements, unfortunately.
  19. Yes, it seems likely. Also, a few of the cities Mika is supposed to play early in April have announced restrictions on large gatherings, which effectively cancels concerts of several hundred people -- San Diego and Seattle, for example. Here in DC, the venue Mika is supposed to play at in May has cancelled ALL shows regardless of size until March 31. Who knows if that will be extended? I've been in touch with Mika's team and they aren't ready to make any announcements on any of the other dates or the tour yet, but as soon as we hear something for sure, we'll post about it. Until then it's all just speculation. Besides, the tour will be rescheduled. We just need to get through this crisis period. Hang in there, everyone!
  20. 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: https://www.mikafanclub.com/index.html/ We have a News Blog there now, which we'll try to keep updated with the latest big news of the day. And we'll also try to add more photos there as well. Also, we've given the MFC Subtitling Team's videos a little more visibility by adding a special tab along the top of the main menu you see across the top of every page in the dark gray bar. That link will take you directly to the Subtitling Team's thread and all of their fantastic translated and subtitled videos, making it easier for you to find them. Stasera Casa Mika, the latest Mika interviews and television appearances, all just one click away! We have a few other changes in mind that we'll be implementing in the next few months, and we're also open to any ideas/suggestions you might have. (Yes, we know, you want an app -- we're looking into it!) Let us know what you think!

  22. MIKA will be performing in Locarno, Switzerland, in the Piazza Grande on 21 June, 2020. Tickets are on sale now from ticketcorner.ch or https://memberplus.raiffeisen.ch/de/konzerte-events/mika
  23. Mika has never done a paid meet & greet that I'm aware of. He sometimes comes out after the show to speak to fans/sign autographs, and occasionally we can organize a meet & greet for Mika Fan Club fans. But you're right, it will totally be worth the trip!
  24. “I am very sad to announce that my shows in China, Japan and South Korea have had to be postponed due to Coronavirus. I have been monitoring the situation closely and really hoped we could still go ahead, but I just don’t want to put any of my fans at risk given the circumstances. I am really disappointed, not only to let so many of you down but because I was so looking forward to being in these incredible cities again, it’s long overdue! But rest assured, my team and I are working hard to find new dates ASAP for me to come back and do even more shows. Watch this space… I hope to have good news for you very soon… Stay safe, M x” New dates will be announced as soon as possible. Fans who have bought tickets to the postponed shows should contact the ticket vendors for information. The post Dates in Japan, China and South Korea postponed appeared first on Mika Sounds.
