  1. No worries, thanks for letting me know I'm already talking to someone who might be interested in buying the ticket, so I'm sure I'll be able to sell it soon either way.
  2. I have two tickets to sell, one for Saturday, 23rd October, and one for Sunday, 24th October. Edit: Both tickets are sold!
  3. Hope you have a lovely day dear Andreja :hug:

      @silver Thank you! :hug: It's been a good day. This cake looks really tasty :licks_lips:

  4. Just Mika's parts: "How much do we need a big collective hug in this moment! Like the one that Pride gives to all its participants." "Covid has changed many things and also prevents us from doing many things, but it doesn't change the importance and the beauty of diversity among people. " "Long live Pride!"
  5. Wishing you a lovely day!  :yay: :flowers2:

      Thank you, @Mikasister and @silver

  6. Yeah, It think he mixed up the English and Italian word (July and luglio) and came up with Julio. When asked if he's still in Athens, he just says, "I'm not with you yet, but in a few weeks!"
  7. I'd love to visit it, as it looks beautiful! Let's hope there will be enough time.
  8. I also ended up buying a ticket for this gig, so if you do decide to go and rent a car, keep me in mind for sharing. I haven't made any travel plans yet, but I'd most likely be travelling from Barcelona too.
  9. I don't know about Germany, but on the third night in Utrecht he said that people on bikes were constantly yelling at him when he was distracted and wasn't paying attention to them. 🚲🚲🚲
  10. I have the same problem with emoticons loading really really slowly (android, Huawei phone). I can use my phone's emoticons normally, but the MFC ones are pretty much impossible to use.
  11. Yes, that introduction was really moving. When you post the video, maybe someone can give a more detailed translation, but I remember that he talked about how his mum always loved to dance and encouraged everyone else to dance too. Now she can't do it anymore because she's in a wheelchair, but every day the whole family gathers around her and they dance. Although she doesn't say anything, Mika thinks she likes it.
  12. I'm pretty tired after returning from Padova, but the concert was great. Since I knew I wouldn't be able to arrive there early, I decided to buy a sitting ticket this time. My seat actually turned out to be terrible: it was in the front row, which was at the same level as the standing area, and you could see absolutely nothing (the part of the stage that wasn't blocked by the people standing was blocked by the loudspeakers). I really don't think the venue should be allowed to sell tickets for such a place (and nowhere did it say that the view was limited or anything like that). Anyway, if I wanted to actually see Mika, I had no choice but to join the people in the standing area, and I ended up really enjoying the gig after all. It was unusually long (almost two hours), maybe because Mika was very chatty. Other than Stardust (which I think he usually does in Italy anyway), there weren't any additions to the usual setlist. When it was time to sing Tomorrow, he started singing it in English, but then sang the second part in Italian. I'm sure most people have already seen the band members with "Mika masks" that he posted on Instagram. While Max was wearing the mask, Mika had to help him walk across the stage because he "couldn't see worth a s**t now" (Mika's words, slightly paraphrased because they were in Italian). There was another funny moment: before Lollipop, some people were throwing candies at Mika (at least I think that's what happened, as I wasn't close enough to really see it), and he joked that they were trying to kill him. He pretended to be an Italian news announcer: "Mika had a pretty short career that lasted about 10 years. He died in Padova because of a caramel in the head." He said that the news would show his old apartment in Milan and that his Italian friends would talk about his death. "Chiara would say: I thought Mika had stardust in his head, but it turned out that it was actually a caramel. Morgan would talk about the poetic death of Mika." He got really invested in the story of his death by caramel and just kept going on and on about it before he finally finished singing Lollipop. A less funny part was that he said he had lost his voice in the morning, but thanks to medication, he was able to sing now. I really hope he'll get better soon, considering how many gigs he has to do in the near future!
  13. @Patty70, you've made some great points, especially about how Mika must be affected by his mother's illness. I sometimes think that we're lucky he's even touring at this difficult time in his life, but in a way, touring is probably what helps him cope with it. Like you said, he can express himself on stage in a way that he can't anywhere else. I'm sorry that you missed the M&G in Cernobbio. If it makes you feel any better, there are no guarantees that you could have talked to Mika even if you had been there. I was there, and while it was definitely an amazing experience (I loved seeing him up close and listening to him talk about his projects), it was also a bit chaotic and a lot of people, including me, didn't really get to talk to him. I also know what you mean about events in Italy in general, but still, you never know when a good opportunity will present itself, so don't give up hope!
  14. I don't know about being wise, but thank you. I wish an amazing 2020 to you too and definitely hope to see you at a Mika gig soon!
  15. My thoughts about this are also quite complicated. On the one hand, I don't think Mika owes us anything (well, except for the concert that we paid for -- and he definitely delivers that!), and I wouldn't say that meeting fans after gigs is a part of his job. It's a nice bonus, but not something that should be expected of him, especially after putting so much of his energy in performing on stage. On the other hand, I can definitely understand that fans are disappointed because he so rarely does M&Gs these days, especially those who were used to him doing them regularly in the past. I have only been following him since 2014, so I wasn't around in the "good old days" (and he didn't do that many M&Gs during the Heaven tour either). I'm sure having something and then having it taken away is more disappointing than never having experienced it in the first place. Also, I was lucky enough to be in Barcelona and experience the one really great M&G he has done so far during this tour, so I definitely can't complain. As for the reasons for the change, obviously we can't really know for sure, as he's the only person who could answer the question. My guess is that in the past he felt like he did "owe" his fans something more than just the concert (and I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way: being famous was still sort of new for him and he was in awe that so many people loved him and were willing to follow him, so he wanted to get to know them and do something for them in return). But as he got older, he gradually realized that he actually isn't obligated to make everyone happy, especially if he's feeling tired or just not in the mood to talk to crowds of people. Perhaps his mother's illness has also made him reconsider his priorities and influenced his behaviour a little? This is all just speculation, of course. Anyway, like I said, I can definitely see the issue from both sides. I've decided to lower my expectations when I go to gigs and just look forward to a great show. If anything happens after it, it's a wonderful and unexpected bonus, and if it doesn't, I already had a great time anyway.
