Thank you! I didn't know this was even coming out and when I clicked the Amazon link you provided, it says that you can buy this and the new Amy Winehouse live DVD for $20. Sold!

Using 10 cameras
This part worries me, though. I hope it isn't hyper-edited like that live Snow Patrol DVD. That one is darn near unwatchable.

Now, if only Mika would put out a Christmas song or two I'd be a really happy camper.

the same thing could be said about the Coldplay 'live' CD/DVD release - ugh - that gives me seizures.

Ditto on Kiss' "Symphony" Concert. It is unwatchable.

I think he is WAY too flamboyant and Liberace-like in demeanor for me to totally dig him live. Hes like a young male Liza Minnelli. I read in a UK Magazine that he 'doesn't want to comment on his sexuality'. Duh. Isn't it kind of obvious, Mika? Thats like Nathan Lane 'shocking' all of us when he does come out. Whatevs.

Well, I got the DVD and watched a bit of it last night. Sad to say that is way too overedited. A friend nailed it when he said, "this is okay if you watch a song or two, but if you watch the whole show it'd be quite annoying." What a let down.

What's worse is that the handful of acoustic live songs that are extras have nice, lingering shots (granted, those are more "intimate" performances, but still). What could have been...

This may be relegated to my "put on to listen, but not watch" concert DVD collection. I'm afraid to open and watch my new Amy Winehouse and Barenaked Ladies DVDs.

The first one is my favourite song, the second is a bonus track on the british album which is quite annoying and the third is summed up perfectly by brian lul dvd. Is it only me though who thinks that Mika with a 'tash COULD be Freddie??? Me and a lot of friend think he is kinda similar looking. Sorry if anyone is offended.

Freddie was one of a kind no one sings like him ((George Michael is closest))!
Mika and everyone else are just pretenders.
