Pink in Manchester
17,000 People last night found themselves in the presence of genius..She is called Alecia Beth Moore. Better known to all, by her stage name Pink.
The buzz of excitement often felt in the Arena just before an artist takes to stage was there,so was the entertaining Dr Rubix.There too were the full length drapes hiding an ingenious stage set, which duly became an integral part of the evening's entertainment .What we couldnt be aware of,as we awaited her arrival, was the UNIQUE combination of her many talents.
Not only is she incredibly pretty with a superb,toned figure,but she possesses tremendous singing talent,superior stagecraft,which she pulls off with consummate ease and great wit.Add to this,her dancing,command of the piano and her stunning aerobatics and you simply have someone who is that often overused word. Unique.
For the entire 2 hours Pink was either on the stage,in the air, or moving between one or the other.Her other talent is clearly to surround herself with some amazing musicians,dancers/trapeze artists and vocalists.Combine all this with the stunning set,a couple of dozen familiar and catchy songs,many written by her good self and you find yourself having experienced something quite special.
Musical highlights for us included,!Raise Your Glass',a lovely acoustic version of 'Who Knew',the semi-erotic 'Try','U and Ur Hand','Just Give Me A Reason' and finally the anthemic 'So What'.The performance of the latter was in all honesty,probably the hightlight of the evening for most of the audience.If you are going to see her on this tour?We wont spoil it for you..
But be prepared..
Pink appears at The Arena,Manchester again tonight.There are some restricted view seats still available we are told.It WILL be worth it,be assured.
