Live photos: Mika strips off at United Palace

The London pop star Mika played to a young, sold-out crowd at United Palace on Friday night. The concert, the second stop on his current American tour, began conceptually: It is 1955, and citizens watch a space launch go wrong. Mika, the Bowie-esque spaceman, removes his suit and...sings pop songs! The bulk of the concert focused less on the concept than on Mika's songs, with a generous set covering both 2007's Life in Cartoon Motion and the new The Boy Who Knew Too Much.
