Mika's inflatable act
Mika is taking an inflatable stage on tour.
The 'Rain' singer - famed for his elaborate stage sets - claims the latest version of his show is so elaborate and action-packed, he had to invent a way to make his many props easily transportable.
He said: "I have too much stuff in my current stage set so we are recreating a new one that is inflatable so we can pack it down easily.
"It will be just as colourful and crazy, don't worry about that."
The quirky pop star has also vowed fans will see a different side to him following his summer tour dates as he hopes to emulate the success of US singer Beck.
He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I want to be more like Beck. What a great career he has.
"He's somebody I look up to and aspire to be like because he has a lot of creative freedom.
"It's exemplary for a pop musician. He gets to make commercial records, produces other people's records, puts out strange collaborations, writes soundtracks and releases eccentric records. I hope to mature into that.
"You assimilate yourself in your own weirdness. That way your fans forgive you for doing it, I hope."
Among Mika's forthcoming ventures is a duet with a mystery female star.
He said: "I'm doing a collaboration with a girl, that's all I'll say. And no, it's not Katy Perry."Posted on 16 Apr 2010 10:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
