It's a few days after the show and I am still in "Mika Mode" and having fun reliving the night! I knew the show was going to be amazing, especially after having waited three years to see him again, but his performance was better than any previous concert I had seen!
I got in line around 11AM and the weather was much more bitter than I had anticipated (thank goodness my brother was kind enough to let me use his humongous coat or else I would have been in bad shape!) I think everyone was nearly ready to riot to get in the venue because it was so cold. It felt so good to be able to feel my legs once we got inside! LOL
Getting to hang out with other MFCers while lining up was such a treat. It was nice to meet Christine, Mana, Kourtney, and Catherine after all this time, as well as see the Meyer Twins and other fans once again. I swear, lining up with all of you is just part of the Mika magic! I'm glad to know such fun people and great fans.
I loved the opening act and regretted not filming a little of their performances. I was completely mesmerized by the violist and kept finding myself just staring in amazement of her talent. The whole vibe, violinist + DJ was really fun and different. They suited very well as an opener!
My favorite performances of the night would be Stardust (of course), Rain, and We Are Golden. There is nothing like being in a room with a large amount of people and having the sense that you are feeling exactly how they are. I always get that feeling with We Are Golden....the entire room was right there in that moment with Mika of pure elation and happiness... I just loved it! I also loved how Elle me dit was received, just singing along as if it wasn't in a different language!
I was so happy to see Catherine (Kasia) enjoying herself in the choir! I was bouncing with joy every time she came on stage and I know she was thrilled to pieces!
I was able to give Mika a cross stitch I made him. He actually tried to sign it when I handed it to him and I told him not to and that it was for him. I said, "I don't know if you remember me, but I've given you cross stitches before." He looked straight at me and said, "Yes, I remember you! I have actually kept every one you made for me." Gosh, that was nice! When you put a lot of work into something it certainly makes you feel like all the hard work was worth it. I appreciate his graciousness some much...coming out in the cold when he really didn't need to... He continually reminds me why I love being his fan. Wonderful music, wonderful performer, wonderful man!
