PINK has paid tribute to Australians after her record-breaking 18th show in Melbourne, and joked that "John Farnham must be really pissed off now". Farnham was the previous record holder for the venue.
"Thanks for the most amazing moment of my life, apart from Willow's birth, but she's been here to see it all," the singer told fans at her Rod Laver Arena show last night. Before the concert the venue dedicated a second structural pole backstage to Pink, which she and daughter Willow signed.
There was also a plaque erected backstage signifying the arena record, which Pink signed with the cheeky greeting to other artists at the venue to 'follow that bitches!'.
Pink was up for anything and everything as she bounced around on bungee cords, twirled around on hanging cloths, danced like a modern day Isadora Duncan and in the show's jaw-dropping pentultimate song, "So What", flew around the arena attached to four cables that turned her into a rock n' roll Tinkerbell. She was equal parts gymnast, singer, dancer and even drummer.
It's easy to like Pink. Her rock-charged brand of pop-dance is radio ready, but it’s anchored in wit and grit. She's got a pliable voice with lung power and melodic grace. She's unbelievably taut with abs of steel and an adventurous streak. She's got attitude, and no qualms about tossing a few expletives. But mostly Pink is an awesome performer. Pink is a natural.
A Pink concert is a little like a Cirque du Soleil performance. There is so much happening on stage - the songs, the dancing and of course the acrobatics - it is a feast for the senses.
