MIKA has released a new live album entitled, MIKA Live From Brooklyn Steel, which is out now through Casablanca Records/Republic Records.
Bottling music from an unforgettable evening in celebration of his critically acclaimed fifth album My Name Is Michael Holbrook, he captured his sold-out show at Brooklyn Steel last fall. He kicked off the set with the 2019 single ‘Ice Cream’ and ran through instantly recognizable anthems such as ‘Happy Ending’ before closing out with his signature smash the gold-selling ‘Grace Kelly.’
Giving the fans a visual taste of the show, MIKA has released the Brooklyn Steel performance of ‘Tomorrow’, which you can check out below.
Maintaining this momentum, MIKA touches down stateside for an anxiously awaited North American headline tour this spring. It kicks off on 11 April 11 on the first weekend of Coachella in Indio, CA, visits major markets across the country such as Denver, Chicago, and New York, and concludes May 16 at Videotron Centre in Quebec, Canada.
Born Michael Holbrook Penniman Jr. in 1983 as the third of five children, MIKA started vocal lessons at seven years old. Learning to play piano and write songs while showing otherworldly vocal range, he quickly became a young virtuoso.
MIKA’s musical success began with the release of his hit single, ‘Grace Kelly.’ The single was featured on his debut album, Life In Cartoon Motion, which went straight to No. 1 in the UK and 11 other countries, going on to sell over seven million copies worldwide.
Since his debut he has released three other Platinum selling full length albums, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, The Origin of Love, and No Place In Heaven. In addition, MIKA has not only won a Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act, but he has also been nominated for Grammys, MTV Europe Music Awards, Capital Radio Awards and World Music Awards. Additionally, his RA12 primetime variety show ‘Stasera Casa Mika’ won the prestigious Rose D’or Award for Best Entertainment Series in 2017.
