Mika has been confirmed to perform at Rock in Rio Lisbon on the opening night of the 2016 festival, 20th May. Other acts on the bill include Queen + Adam Lambert and Fergie, with many more to be announced. Tickets go on sale soon.
It has been confirmed that Mika’s next single in Italy will be ‘Hurts’ from the album ‘No Place In Heaven.’ The track, already a fan favourite, will be played on Italian radio from Jan 29th and will also feature in the new film from Ivan Cotroneo ‘Un Bacio’, due for release in Italian cinemas on 31st March.
Talking about the film, Mika said, “It was amazing to discover how the words of my song were perfect for the film #UnBacio, so a collaboration with Ivan was born naturally. It has been great getting to know him and discovering his imagination and it’s beautiful to continuing working together on the video for Hurts.”
“È stato straordinario scoprire come le parole della mia canzone fossero perfette per il film #UnBacio, quindi la collaborazione con Ivan è nata con naturalezza e sono felice di averlo conosciuto e aver scoperto il suo immaginario ed è bellissimo poter continuare a collaborare realizzando insieme il video di Hurts”.
On New Year’s Day, 1st January 2016, Mika will present a 2 hour radio show on BBC Radio 2 entitled ‘The Art of Song’ where he’ll play some of his favourite tracks of all time, discuss the stories behind the songs and what they mean to him. He’ll be looking back over the the greatest songwriters of all time for a show filled with music at its best.
