Hopefully it won’t just be her and her hand tonight.  It’s singer Pink’s birthday.  If you’ve never seen Pink in concert, I recommend it.  She puts on a great show where she sings, dances and if you are lucky, you’ll see her suspended from the air while she sings.  My favorite song from Pink is “18 Wheeler.”  What’s yours?

Also born today: actors Peter Sellers, Sid Caesar and Jonathan Taylor Thomas and  singer Patsy Cline.

Happy Birthday, Pink

Singer Pink turns 31 today and According2g would like to wish her a very happy birthday!  She’s amazing to see live and I love her fuck you attitude to all the naysayers!  If the Worley Gig writes about this event, I wonder if it’ll be her “pink thing of the day.” I think my favorite Pink song is “18 Wheeler.”  What’s your favorite Pink song?

According2G’s favorite Grammy Moments

Pink live at Madison Square Garden, October 2009

The Grammy’s have long been synonymous with being dull as sh-t and the 2010 Grammy Awards were no exception.  Aside from a really cool opening number by Lady Gaga and Elton John and Pink’s exhilarating performance, the show was a paint by numbers affair.  The picture above is from Pink’s sold-out show last October at Madison Square Garden.  After performing an amazing 2 hour show, she closed with “Glitter In The Air” where she performed whilst being suspended in the air.  Truly perfection, According2g.

I don’t understand how Country Music performers, which have a separate awards show, constantly win awards in Pop music.  Queen of the World,Beyonce wins every kudo under the sun, yet her performances take no chances and they constantly leave me cold. Covering an Alanis Morrissette song and then not singing the “F-Word” as the original lyric states while being surrounded by storm troopers is a cop out!  I also take issue with anyone that has the word “Lil” or misspelled words in their moniker.  The Black Eyed Peas, who also seem to be fan favorites have some of the worst and indecipherable lyrics of all time.  We are clearly living in the catchy manufactured beat with no substance generation.

Multiple times in the telecast, it was announced that Bon Jovi would perform an audience favorite and they gave viewers a chance to vote on which song would be performed.  When the moment came, Bon Jovi performed 1 verse and 1 chorus of the chosen song – “Living On A Prayer.”  Seems like a lot of hype for nothing.

What were your favorite/least favorite moments?

Pink performing at Madison Square Garden on October 5, 2009

Pink!  I love her F-U attitude so much that I decided to see her in concert.  So did a lot of fat bottomed girls and gay men, but that’s besides the point.  Pink did not disappoint and in fact, she makes you realize what a specatacle concert should be (are you listening pop tarts)?  She sings, she dances, she plays guitar (but not too much – she knows she’s not Jimmy Page), she bumps and grinds on a bed (but in a hot way, not in an I’m over 50 and still have a good body way), she sings covers (and very well, I might add) and she had a really elaborate circus set that included slides, singing whilst suspended from a trapeze, playing hit after hit and giving the audience their money’s worth.

Before the show was over, she sang her smash hits “U + Ur Hand,” “Just Like A Pill,” “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “Funhouse,” “Get The Party Started,” and she performed the anti-Bush song “Dear Mr. President.”  Madison Square Garden erupted in thunderous applause after that song and she pointed out that she was booed in Virginia and Anaheim, California after playing it in those cities.

Finally, if all of the above things weren’t enough, she performed amazing covers of the Divinyl’s “I Touch Myself,” AC/DC’s  “Highway to Hell,” Led Zeppelin’s “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You,” Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.”  She picked pretty tough songs to master, but she had full control of them and hearing the whole of Madison Square Garden singing along to these songs was definitely a moment that makes one realize, this is what concerts are for.

The Ting Tings live at Madison Square Garden October 5, 2009

Opening for Pink on her Funhouse tour, Manchester Band The Ting Tings played at New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 5, 2009.  While their lyrics tend to be on the silly pop song side, their music definitely got asses out of seats to bump and grind. When they played their UK #1 “That’s Not My Name,” the sold-out arena sang along to every word.

Check out some more pictures of Katie White and Jules DeMartino also known as The Ting Tings plus the set list after the jump.
