Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce a February 2020 tour for international pop sensation MIKA, returning to Australia for the first time in 11 years and performing in New Zealand for the very first time. MIKA will headline four shows as part of his world tour in the wake of his fifth album My Name Is Michael Holbrook, described by Billboard as ‘his boldest record yet’.
The result of two years of songwriting in Miami and Tuscany, MIKA’s fifth and latest studio album My Name Is Michael Holbrook was recorded using vintage synths in Brussels with producers Marc Crew and Dan Priddy. The entire album features organic soundscapes which speak to various decades of pop and represent MIKA’s journey of self-discovery. Tracks of note from this album include, ‘Ice Cream’, ‘Tiny Love’,‘Cry’ and ‘Platform Ballerina’ with MIKA’s ‘frankly empowering lyrics’ (Gigwise) with respect to the beauty standards forced upon women.
The Beirut-born performer will be supported by idiosyncratic pop artist Theia. Born in Christchurch, NZ and now making music in Sydney, Theia broke into the scene with her hit ‘Roam’ which has amassed more than 14 million combined streams to date. No stranger to the limelight, Theia has toured Australia, Asia and the United States and has previously opened for the likes of Tones and I, Sia, Broods, LEON and The Kite String Tangle.
MIKA’s debut album Life in Cartoon Motion was one of 2007’s best-selling albums globally and saw MIKA pick up a Grammy Award nomination and the 2008 BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Artist. Featuring his breakthrough hit single ‘Grace Kelly’ and its follow-ups ‘Love Today’, ‘Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)’, ‘Happy Ending’ and ‘Lollipop’, the album has been certified Gold and Platinum across 32 different countries, and had 10 million sales worldwide.
More recently, MIKA has featured on British-Italian crooner Jack Savoretti’s UK #1 album The Special Edition: Singing to Strangers with ‘Youth and Love (featuring MIKA)’, and Kylie Minogue’s 2016 festive album Kylie Christmas (Snow Queen Edition) with ‘Wonderful Christmastime (with MIKA)’.
MIKA is one of the defining pop artists of his generation and his Australian and New Zealand shows are not to be missed. Secure tickets early to avoid missing out!
