Stranded Mika Hires Cars To Get To Concert In Spain
Pop star Mika refused to let the volcanic ash storm which has brought much of Europe to a standstill wreck his concert plans in Spain on Sunday (18Apr10) - he hired a fleet of cars to get him and his band from Paris, France to Barcelona.
The Grace Kelly hitmaker had to scrap a show in Lisbon, Portugal when all flights from France were grounded following the Iceland volcano blast on Thursday (15Apr10), which left a cloud of ash floating in the skies above the continent.
In a tweet to fans, Mika posted, "Volcano freak out. This is bad."
He then hired cars to make sure he didn't have to postpone a second show on his European tour.
More than 63,000 flights were cancelled as a result of the volcano chaos, keeping over six million people on the ground. The planes are expected to stay grounded until Tuesday (20Apr10).
