Pink, US Airways Center, 2/13/13 (VIDEO)
|P!nk performing at US Airways Center.|
she flew throughout the entire arena, was when Pink sang "Just Give Me a
Reason" with a virtual Nate Ruess, frontman for fun. and former Valley
singer for The Format.
Most of the audience members probably didn't even know Ruess is from Phoenix, but it was dang amazing to see his face singing on a screen up in US Airways Center after such a long musical journey.
Despite stand-out moments like these, a jarringly annoying thing about the nearly two-hour show was the "host," Jimmy, who led the audience through pre-concert games and mid-show entertainment. Jimmy's presence was distracting and unfunny -- his antics probably just made people miffed Pink wasn't onstage. For a show with such high ticket prices, you'd think there'd be more engaging entertainment. Pink's lackey seemed more like filler than anything meaningful.
Still, judging from the cheers of the sold-out audience, it seemed like the crowd enjoyed the show, no matter how meh it may have seemed to those who weren't crazy about her. She showed off that wild rebellious side by flipping people off and grabbing her crotch plenty-a-time, and if that's what Pink's fans want to see at a show, they shouldn't have been disappointed.
