Pink brings the circus to town | Concert preview
Pink’s over-the-top “The Truth About Love” tour is a circuslike extravaganza combining music, dancing, aerial routines and even single-handed pushups by the athletic star. If you’re in need of a serious girl-empowerment buzz, the Grammy-winning 34-year-old will surely set your hair on fire with such hyperkinetic pop-rock hits as “Blow Me (One Last Kiss),” “Try” and “Just Give Me a Reason” from her current album, “The Truth About Love,” which made its debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart.
Born Alecia Beth Moore in 1979, Pink has sold an astonishing 110 million records worldwide. Billboard magazine named her the No. 1 artist of the decade in 2009, and VH1 ranked her at No. 10 on its list of the “100 Greatest Women in Music.” Pink signed her recording contract at 16, and has described her songs as diary entries. “I sum up each chapter of my life with a record,” she says in her online bio. “I’m growing up with my audience, and I’m driven by what’s going on inside and around me.”
7:30 p.m. Sunday at KeyArena. Seattle Center; $35-$121 (800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com)
