Brit pop singer MIKA has announced his return to the states for a North American headlining tour this spring to support his new record, My Name Is Michael Holbrook.
MIKA makes his triumphant return with a performance during the first weekend of Coachella, on 11 April 2020 before making stops in Denver, Chicago and New York, then wrapping up the tour on 16 May at Videotron Centre in Quebec, Canada.
General tickets officially will be available this Friday, 24 January at 10 am local time, while a special artist pre-sale goes live Wednesday, 22 January at 10am local time at his official site.
MIKA also revealed the details of a new live album entitled; MIKA Live From Brooklyn Steel (via Casablanca Records/Republic Records) arriving on 31 January.
Recorded during a sold out set at Brooklyn Steel, he delivered a historic performance of fan favourites and highlights from his critically acclaimed fifth album. The global pop singer-songwriter also shared a new video for ‘Dear Jealousy’, from his Brooklyn performance.
On his latest album, MIKA worked alongside longtime producer Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele) and explored his many influences: “from piano bar troubadour (‘All She Wants’, ‘Good Wife’) to anthemic boulevardier (‘Good Guys’) to disco diva (lead single ‘Talk About You’),” writes Billboard.
MIKA first burst onto the scene in 2007 with the single ‘Grace Kelly, a soaring single that displayed his vocal prowess and scaled the charts, turning his debut album, Life in Cartoon Motion, multiplatinum. He went on to release three more LPs: The Boy Who Knew Too Much, in 2009, The Origin of Love, in 2012 (including ‘Popular Song’, a collaboration with then emerging start Ariana Grande) and No Place in Heaven, in 2015.
Since winning the Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act in 2008, the piano-playing, multilinguistic star has been nominated for Grammy awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, served as a judge on France’s The Voice for six years and hosts his own BBC2 Radio show ‘The Art of Song’.
