Today on the French radio Champagne FM Mika said that the organisation of the concert was a huge challenge but it was worth it.

They did not announce it yet but all the records of the streaming of a concert in the WORLD were broke.

We’re getting lots of questions about this show, so I thought I’d take a minute to clarify a few things. This is everything that I know so far. Please read on!👇 1️. The livestream will take place on

I have a few more answers about the livestream for you.   You should be able to view "I Love Beirut" from anywhere -- it's a global livestream. So choose which time frame you'd like to watch

The world record is 756,000 for a BTS concert this year in June, so yeah, this is great! :clap:

I don't think they broke this record, it's huge. Maybe, they broke records in some countries (France, Italy, Mexico...)

In the interview he explicitly spoke about the whole world. If you count all the followers of him and his guests together it's millions, so I can well imagine that they might have reached one million.

 

How much were tickets for the BTS gig, does anyone know?

I don'y know, we saw the views on youtube, it was around 60 000, maybe it didn't show all the views, but I would be really surprised if they reach 700 000, like :excite:. For BTS concert the ticket costs $25, but it's BTS the biggest boys band currently

Some of my Twitter friends (Hi @mariposa :bye:) are fans, that's how I know who they are. :naughty: Without that, I wouldn't know either. 😅

They don't have that many more followers than Danna Paola, and she has a lot of teenage fans as well, I think. I don't know how likely Danna's followers were to buy tickets for the Beirut gig, but if we assume that the difference to the BTS followers isn't big, the 15$ less might have made a difference. Plus the followers of Mika, Rufus, Laura and Kylie, who are not that many and maybe not as likely to watch a livestream as the teenagers, but if they do, they have no problem

to buy a ticket.

If you mean by followers, "instagram followers", they don't represent fans who are willing to buy tickets. BTS are really huge in the US, they have young fans, mainly girls. But I would be glad to be wrong :excite:🥰

I think no matter how many tickets Mika sold. For sure it was a huge number if we know that the project was "just an idea created at the kitchen table".

Nobody expected the result. Mika looks really surprised by statistics and it was a charity concert. So the only winner is Beirut.

Just read that the live stream of BTS was via WeVerse, a South Korean app and website, not Youtube. The record for YT was set by Andrea Bocelli's performance on Easter 2020 and it's over 2,8 million viewers :teehee: ... but that was a free event, so doesn't count.  So maybe Mika set a world record for payed YT livestreaming :wink2:  However, he is clearly very pleased with the result so that's what matters :thumb_yello:

I’m listening to them on Spotify now to expand my musical knowledge 😅 I think I can safely say that their demographic is wayyyyyy different than Mika’s!

It looks like the stock of t-shirts I Love Beirut on Mikasounds website  has been unblocked.

No more information that you can't order them.

Wonderful!!! Insane!!! Amazing!!! Only words that I can think of and that fit so well 🎉❤️

 

Yes, it's a huge amount! And this is after all costs deducted :-)

When I was calculating a possible amount just after the concert and I said that it WOULD be possible to have 1 milion I though that it's almost hard to believe.

BUT IT HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :toot:
