Mika did a small Jam Sessions gig at Comedy Club in Paris in November 2009. I don’t have any fan videos to share, the gig was professionally filmed (so we were not allowed to use our cameras during the gig), but I want to mention the gig here as it’s one of my dearest Mika concert memories.
The venue was small and very pretty with old-fashioned wall papers, several chandeliers and a tiny stage. The audience consisted mostly of fans and the atmosphere was fantastic. Mika’s voice was really beautiful, and I must say this gig is definitely one of my all time favorites.
Thanks to Eriko the gig is on Youtube:
Part 1: Grace Kelly (in French), BIOTG, Happy Ending (amazingly beautiful version)
Part 2: Love Today, Rain
Part 3: We Are Golden, Relax
I was organizing my archives and uploaded a few videos from the acoustic Paris gigs (on June 11th and 12th, 2009). Two fantastic shows. Many people say the second night was even better than the first one, but personally I enjoyed the first Paris gig more (I was probably simply too tired on the second night). He performed well both nights and I really miss these acoustic shows.
The play list for the first night is here, I added Good Gone Girl, Lady Jane, Big Girl, Lollipop and a small clip of Lonely Alcoholic. Good Gone Girl:
And the videos for the second night are here. I added two vids, Love Today with a little girl dancing on stage and Over My Shoulder. I didn’t know the girl but I was next to her both nights, and she was adorable! She seemed to be a huge fan and Mika noticed her immediately and gave her smiles and a lot of attention and asked her on stage during Love Today. In the end of the evening Mika asked one of his fans to play piano during Relax. He did really well and it made the audience just go wild. Love Today:
There was a small newspaper article in the paper I found from my hotel lobby in the morning after the shows. And look, it’s me standing in the audience! Hilarious. It’s always a pleasure to be in Paris, France appreciates him, there is Mika-love in the air.
