Not as good as Mika's previous DVD

"I was very impressed by Mika's previous DVD. The sound was excellent and the energy from the crowd enhanced the dvd experience. The video aspect was somewhat dark throughout and was the only negative I can apply to the last dvd. This effort offers nothing over his first dvd other than a better visual experience from a lighting point of view. At the same time, the crowd is marginally involved. Mika is left screaming at them to participate and show enthusiasm to a point where it distracts from the show. The songs are virtually the same though it is without a fun cover of a Jackson Five tune compared to the first dvd and the sound is not improved.
Unless you must have every Mika dvd, I can't recommend investing in this dvd if you already have the first as the performance watered down by an uninvolved crowd and no new music is offered."
A must-see show

"On July 4, I stood in line outside Parc des Princes for 3 hours before the start of the show. I made the trip to Paris mostly to see Mika's first stadium performance. Once I stood in the coveted front-row center place, I knew I was in for a treat. This was my third Mika show, and I knew what to expect.
The decorations were second to none - the whole stage was a clown head! Each song had the support of a full-blown circus act - acrobats, clowns, orchestra, dancers, outrageous costumes, Chinese dragons, you name it!
Mika's performance was sublime as ever - you have to see they guy live to appreciate his amazing talent. The music is fantastic, we all know that.
Still, the best part of the show was the atmosphere - the 50,000 people stadium felt very intimate, with everyone singing along to every line, and Mika really created a very familiar atmosphere and gave the audience every imaginable treat. He is a superb performer and will only get better.
After two very successful years, this show was arguably the highlight of it all! Well done, Mika, and thanks for signing my ticket afterward!"
What can I say? I'm a Mika fan.

"The music is fantastic as always, and the video is quite a show. This is no ordinary rock show, let me tell you that!
If you like Mika, you'll probably like this. If not, nothing in the world could make you like this.
Incidentally the other DVD is pretty good too, but this is better lit, and better decorated, so it looks nicer. Other than that, both have good music (and both have *different* music - even the same songs are always played differently)."
