He goes on tour to the USA without having released the new album? Just with some singles  :dunno:
 

 

He's done this before. In NYC last time he played Good Wife before any of us heard it. And in Montreal at the orchestra concerts he played a few songs we hadn't heard yet.

He’s coming in Montreal in October and it will be a pre sale, how does it work? I missed it all the time last times.

For New York concert the CD is included in a ticket price too (like in Montreal).

Actually most of us bought tickets in pre-sale which equals to order the CD from micasounds.com.

So as you can see the the CD sales already generate the revenue on an album which is not ready yet!

 

 

:blink:  so if I go to three gigs I'd get three albums? even for me this seems excessive xD

For Europe pre-sale was for fans ordering a CD. We received a pre-sale code to use.

With the code you could buy tickets before official sales.

This has become a standard practice for tours promoting albums in recent years, I've gotten tickets to two different artists this year and each has come with their a physical or digital copy of the album. 

 

In other news, if you've been following my 9 year saga of never seeing Mika live; I think this is going to be it. I think I'm going to be able to go to the New York show. I'm going to buy a ticket and worry about the logistics later.

hmm, i've never heard of this practice of giving albums w/ tickets before. Thanks for explaining.  I'd prefer to buy the album myself and just have cheaper gig tickets :annoyed_h4h:

 

"I'm going to buy a ticket and worry about the logistics later." I think I'm gonna have to do this too. One day is not enough time to plot!

It's an odd one. I don't think the ticket prices are affected that much and its just a way to boost the "sales" of the album by making them cheaper and people are more likely to claim it when its bundled with a concert ticket. I think its a practice that started due to the rise of music streaming services, like Spotify, people are less likely to actually buy an album. I'm just speculating though, I don't have that much insight into the music business today but I know from taking a history class on it that this would be pretty likely. 

 

I know right? I'm just lucky that I don't have many classes this semester with in-classroom instruction and I have family I can bum with in the area. I think I can make it work.

Also in 2013 he managed that the 2 new songs he played didn't get spread all over the web. Same for the OSM concerts. Yes, there were/are recordings online, but you need/ed to know exactly what to look for, to find them.

That was in the US / Canada tho. Not sure they are that strict in Mexico, about taking cameras or using mobiles. Maybe that's why it's the last gig. :teehee:

Anyway he said there'll be more than 1 single before the album is out, so I suppose you'll get at least 3 songs of the new album. Ice cream, 2 new singles, and probably 1-2 more songs from the album. He often played songs at gigs before he released them, like Underwater, BIOTG, Good Wife...

I had a friend who went to one of these shows, and although she enjoyed it a lot she felt like she was missing the whole experience since it was only an acoustic set. It's understandable when you're seeing an acoustic set from an artist that has a primary pop/produced sound. I had this feeling when I saw an acoustic show of Marina (and the Diamonds) a day before I went to her fully-fledged concert, it's just kind of missing a bit of something.. not that it has it's own interesting flair to it. It's just that you know what you're missing.

 il pourrait chanter certains des nouveaux, mais cela est risqué parce que les vidéos se retrouveront en ligne 

 

I do not think it's a problem that some new songs are coming online, it will make us even more eager to hear them all ......   :excite:

I believe tomorrow's presale is what they're calling the "artist" presale -- I think there's another presale by the AXS.com on Thursday. It looks like there will also be a presale for American Express cardholders.

Hello! I am also trying to find out how to get the pre sale code for the LA show in September.

 

 

There is a code and I'll be posting it here tomorrow morning an hour or two before the presales start. It should also be posted on mikasounds.com, along with the links to the sales.

 

Tomorrow's presales will start at 10 a.m. in the time zone the show is in -- that is, the Montreal and New York shows' presales will start at 10 a.m. Eastern time in the US. (That'll be 3 p.m. for the UK and 4 p.m. for Italy, France, etc.). The LA and San Francisco shows' presales will start at 10 a.m. Pacific time (which will be 6 p.m. UK time, 7 p.m. France, Italy, etc.)

 

Of course, this is all what I've been TOLD. Whether it actually happens as planned is a whole other story! :teehee:  You all know how that goes!

Yes, on Axs.com the Artist presale seems to be for US/CA customers only

Hmm, I interpreted that to mean only US/Canadian residents would get the album with the purchase of the ticket.

 

I'll clarify with Mika's team, but the way it's worded, I really think that US/Canadian restriction only applies to the free album offer.
