Pink w/ New Politics
After a decade of touring behind multi-platinum albums, Pink knows how to entertain an arena crowd. In an era where Top 40 tastes change rapidly, her hybrid of pop and glam rock has proven surprisingly resilient, changing little from album to album but sounding fresher for it. Though she doesn’t mention him by name, Pink addresses her separation from husband Carey Hart on her latest album, 2012’s The Truth About Love, a fiery record that has yielded some of the biggest hits of her career, including the bitter “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” and the ballad “Just Give Me a Reason,” a duet with fun. singer Nate Ruess. These are the type of songs that full arena sing-alongs are made of. Hopefully her voice will be in good form: This concert was originally scheduled for Nov. 3 before she postponed it on doctor’s orders to rest her vocal chords.
