I said that i was off to see Pink that night? Well she was awesome!!!!
The concert started at about 5 o’clock, but Pink didn’t actually come on until about 8:30. We wanted to get there early though, so we left at about half 4. Even by this time the traffic was mad!!!
There was a bit of confusion though, as we thought that the concert started at 5, and finished at 8 o’clock. This wasn’t the case though, as we found out a couple of days before that there was going to be a fun fair type thing going on too. Anyway…..we got there at about a quarter past 5. We managed to get up pritty close to the stage, I think we were roughly about 50 feet from it.
At the fun fair there was burger vans, a bar, loads of portaloos, and like a thing that was like a thing you sat in and got shot up into the air, and bounced about. We didn’t bother going to that part, as we only came for Pink.
A local DJ from
was there providing the music until the support acts came on. They came on at about half 6.
The first act, “City And Colour” were alright. They didn’t sound too lively though. They were listenable though.
About an hour later, a band called
And the “Black widdos” came on. These guys were rather mad!! Butch Walker wrote a couple of songs with Pink, but i didn’t find that out until she came on later. Anyway Butch started banging his head off the drums and stuff during some of the songs lol!
At about half 8, Pink finally came on. She made her entrance by being hoisted up into like a box type thing. There were baloons attached to the box, and she was shot out of it by a big canon thing that burst all the baloons that were attached to the box. She then went swinging over the audience.
She was on for about an hour and a half, or possibly two. She didn’t have as many acrobatics as she did when she was in doors, but it was still awesome. On her oncore, she had like fire coming up from the stage, while she swung around the audience again.
I’m so glad that it wasn’t the exact same songs she sung. Well it was, but they were in a different order than when she did them last.
I thought it was gonna drag in since we’d be standing for so long, but it flew. I think because there was a wall we could lean against kind of helped.
I’m really glad i decided to go now. It was great, and at least the weather was good.
I wonder when she’ll be back next.
Back In October
I went to see Pink in concert. Well Today (16 June), she is coming back again. It is for her “Funhouse summer Carnival” or something like that.
I wasn’t that keen on going, since it’s standing this time, but my sister convinced me to go. Plus, it’s outdoors, so hopefully it’ll be quite awesome. I just hope it doesn’t rain!!
I will probably post on Thursday after the concert, but going on the last concert, she should still be thoroughly good.
I don’t think i will get the set list though.
I can’t wait! Must go to bed now though….
I told you about going to Pink? Well it was pure awsum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At about 1 o’clock, me, my sister and dad arrived up at my uncles house to spend a bit of time with him before we would be going to the concert. We also had to drop off our bags, because we decided to stay the night since we wouldn’t be home until late.
At about 6 o’clock, we got a taxi up to the concert. Doors didn’t open until 6:30, but i’m glad we left early!!!!! When we got there, the queue was half way down the street!!!!!!!!!!! It took us about half an hour before we got in!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really wasn’t expecting as many people to be there. We eventually got to the fron, and got checked in by security. We were then taken up to our row. We were in Row T 80 to 83. I’m glad we got seats, as i didn’t fancy standing for a long time.
We sat for about half an hour, until the support act came on. They were a band from New Zealand. They were called Ever more. They were alright, but you couldn’t really hear them cause the drums were so loud.
Half an hour after that, Pink came on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The concert started with like a little cartoon thing with clowns and stuff, and then she went into “Highway to hell” by A C D C. This was pure awsum!!!!!!!!!! It showed vidios of her riding in on her harley too during that song.
The whole concert lasted about 2 and a half hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She really puts alot of energy into it!!!! Plus, you have the added benifit of knowing that it’s live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She was doing alot of acrobatics and stuff throughout the concert. She had got jymnasts there too!!!!
She did a cover of the song “I touch myself”, and apparently, there were hands coming up and touching her in intimate places. There was a kid there, so i can just imagine the questions the parents got about that song afterwords!!!!!!!!!!
The whole concert was awsum!!!!!! I liked it so much, that i am going to book tickets for when she comes back in June 2010.
By the way, after a bit of googling, I discovered a site which has the

Today i’ll be off to see
In concert. I’m not sure if i’ve mentioned this before. In case i haven’t, here’s the story. Appologies for anyone who has already heard this on MSN.
Well i was going to go and see Pink in April, but the tickets were sold out. So a couple of weeks later, I was just listening to the radio when i heard that Pink was coming again in October. I had to get tickets this time. I made sure that on the day that they were released that we got practically the first tickets. It was a good job we did, since half an hour after they went on sale, they were sold out. She must have been popular.
I can’t believe that i’m going already!!!!! It doesn’t take long for time to fly. I can’t wait!!!!!!!! in something like 19 and a half hours, which seems like ages away, i’ll be in the concert thinking about Pink, and hopefully enjoying the support act. I’ve got no idea yet who that is.
I’ll let you know how it was on Monday hopefully, since that’s when i’m back home. I’ll probably text updates on Facebook though.
Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!! It should be awsum!!!!!
