The Place du Casino in Monte-Carlo will once again be transformed into an open-air dance floor with free concerts this August.
This will be the third summer that Monte-Carlo SBM has opened up the Place du Casino for its Casino Nights à Ciel Ouvert. We can already safely bet that the upcoming event is not going to disappoint with two big names of the international music scene on the programme: Mika and Murray Head.
It all kicks off on Saturday the 29th August at 9pm with harmonica virtuoso Charles Pasi showing the audience why he was THE jazz sensation at this year’s Juan Les Pins festival. He will pave the way for one of the biggest star of the moment: pop sensation Mika who is scheduled to take the stage at 10pm.
After hitting the big time a few years ago with the multi-million selling debut Life in Cartoon Motion and subsequent albums The Boy who Knew Too Much and The Origin of Love, the flamboyant American-Lebanese singer has just released his fourth record No Place in Heaven, a well-crafted effort that has already reached No. 1 in France and Italy. Produced by Gregg Wells, the man behind Katy Perry, Adele, Pharrell Williams and Rufus Wainwright’s success, this more mature album is the perfect showcase for Mika’s amazing vocals and great song writing abilities.
And if that was not enough, the magical evenings under the stars continue a month later with English singer Murray Head on 26th September. Famous for his hit songs “Say it ain’t so”, “One Night in Bangkok” and “Lady in Red”, the singer and occasional actor who has always been hugely popular in France, will present his latest opus, My Back Pages.
