Tickled P!nk


Gig #3 this year saw me witnessing the brilliant Pink at the M.E.N Arena last night.

Fantastic voice - if I could sing, I'd love to have a voice like hers.

Sexy, sassy, cheeky, ballsy, raunchy and fun - Pink was in great shape, looking toned and athletic as she strutted her stuff, belting out her popular hits (U + UR Hand and So What probably among my faves) as well as the emotional ballad Family Portrait and amazingly, sang a few of her tracks whilst swinging upside down, suspended from a trapeze! Wow, fantastic!

She did some excellent covers of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and Gnarls Barkley's Crazy. It was an excellent show lasting over two hours.

The arena was packed (though not quite rammed as with the Killers), the audience was 99% female of all ages and it also seemed that many of the female half of Manchester's gay village were in attendance also - I noticed as it's usually the male half I see at gigs.

It was a great night out with the glamorous C (and her daughter who I think I'll now call Saffy...) - before the gig, we went for our usual Chinese buffet and were able to catch up a bit on our news - as Saffy was there (and most definitely earwigging!), there was much we couldn't discuss so we'll have to make sure we can catch up at lunchtime next week!

  1. Ah I collect covers of "Crazy" Silly really.

    I think Pink is quite sexy.

    Keep your fingers crossed for PNE, won't you? We are desperate to go up or even just make it into the playoffs. So everything crossed.

  2. The only other cover I've heard of 'Crazy' is one that The Kooks did for Radio One's Live Lounge.

    Yep, everything crossed for PNE!
