Thought I would write a little review as I love reading everyones so much!!
So this was my second Mika gig (and my second gig ever!), I had seen him at the la cigale gig in Paris with my friend a couple weeks back😊
I arrived to queue at 9am with my poor sister who couldn't quite understand why we had to get there so early but went along with it anyway😂
There were already loads of people there including one girl who had been waiting since 2am!! We sat there, taking it in turns to pop back to our hotel every so often for warmth, until it was time to go in by which point I had lost all feeling in my toes😂
But it was worth it! I got on the front row near the middle and my sister was behind me, but ended up a little further away as she was pushed out, there was a lovely girl though behind us that offered to move back a bit so she could be nearer me! I was also glad to see that the girl who had waited since 2am was on the front too, especially after all that waiting!!
Like @pipinhaslovemikathere was some less than polite people at the front. One lady who was with her daughter, I think they were german, next to me, had a go at some fans behind for getting too close when they had plenty of room and then proceeded to tell her daughter to elbow me in the ribs to get more room, which did hurt. I also couldn't go anywhere or move over as I was more squished than them but was trying to make sure I wasn't hurting anybody so that dampened the mood a a bit . However, there was a guy and a girl in the first tier who were dancing away to the DJ's which brought everyones mood up!! they were incredible!! very fun to watch!!!
When he finally came on I was quite shocked at how close he was, it almost didn't feel real!! And then after the first song we held up the signs that I had helped to make and he loved it!! I was so happy it worked out well, as before he came on I could only see about 3 people near me with them so I was worried no-one would hold them up😂 (if anyone filmed his reaction could you send me a link as I would love to see it again!). The paper hearts looked amazing too! I think when he started Tiny Love he saw a couple of hearts go up, but not many before he closed his eyes, but by the time he opened them he saw a sea of multi coloured hearts which took him by surprise! (again if anyone has his reaction i would love to see it again!). It was wonderful to see!!
The venue staff were also passing out cups of water at the front which was greatly appreciated as after all the singing I was very thirsty!
He then got into the crowd to sing Big Girl and got in next to me which I was ecstatic about😂 On his way out though he stood next to me and sang but was struggling to get over the barrier, as on the way in there was like little steps but not on this side! So he ended up kind of falling into me, so I got face planted with his back and sweaty t-shirt 😂 and if anyones wondering he smelt lovely! which i definitely would not of, if I had been bouncing around that much!!!😂 so that was a moment to remember!
Once it was over we went outside and waited for him to come out which he did! Unfortunately I was too far away from the barriers to get anything signed but it was still nice to see him!
and then i got back to my hotel and couldn't sleep because i was running off the adrenaline!! I think though like @teenagedreamer98 I'm now in this slight depressive stage because it was all over so quickly and I don't want to go back to normal life!! I may have to go back to France to see him again....😂
I had a wonderful time though and met so many amazing people who were all so kind! it is definitely an experience I will never forget!!
I've attached a couple of videos I took here if anyone is intrested😊they are only short clips sorry, I didn't mange to get a whole song but I did get some chatty bits including a bit about him throwing up on Shepard's green😂
I've got some others on my instagram which is
They will be under the london tab on my profile😊
