Soo here I am a week after the concert. I’m not used in doing gig reports as I’m not that good in putting into words what I feel and experience during a Mika concert but, now, all your reports are so real and well written that while reading them I was brought back to the exact moment we were there and felt inspired to write something.
First of all, I have to say that I was lucky enough to win tickets with Ticket Fairy here on MFC and it’ll seem obvious, but even a week after I still feel honored and privileged to have had the possibility to be there first row after these two years of nothing. It was like coming back to two years ago but at the same there was something special in the air, our (or at least my) first concert after what we’ve been living. I tried several times to imagine how it’d felt and how it was having Mika right in front of me again, but actually I couldn’t anymore (blame on the pandemic). I’m so glad to have refreshed my mind and I really feel regenerated.
I won’t recap each song as you’ve already seen plenty of videos and I completely share @camille*’s words, 100%.
The atmosphere was amazing, it felt so good to be back in a venue, to see some friends after years (this is always one of the highlights at Mika’s events!), to feel that adrenaline again and to be amazed again and again seeing Mika coming back on stage. And he definitely was so happy to be back.
I guess my best memory of the concert was exactly that: the happiness in his eyes and the way he looked at the whole audience and at us front row. He really searched our eyes while singing. And smiled. When he looks at you, he literally stares at you, and sings more lines without taking his look away and it feels like he’s singing just for you. It happened more than once that night, and it wasn’t the first time, but I did feel like those looks said more than hundred words in that specific context. I’ll forever keep those moments impressed in my head.
Cherry on the top of this exquisite cake, Mika liked and retweeted my pics right after the concert, while we were hanging out all together. It couldn’t get any better.
Now, I’m really looking forward to the dreamy weekend that we’ll be living in a month.
