I’m not gonna use the phrase “Nobody’s Perfect” anymore, ’cause after what I saw Pink do onstage in San Jose last night, I think she might be. My woman was singing, dancing, trapezing (sure that’s a word), skipping, rolling around, putting on one of the best shows everybody in the building had ever seen.
Her “Truth About Love” tour completely owned HP Pavilion from the very first second -and, ya know, the first explosion. She’s so insanely likeable and down to Earth, you go back and forth from feeling like you’re her best friend just hanging out at her house for a beer, to being completely in awe of how hard she works on stage and how easy she makes it all seem.
She comes across as so freaking real – and at the same time, she’s such a freakin’ rockstar … she introduces “F**king Perfect” by saying “this one is about Moms dropping F Bombs” , then goes into this insanely sentimental version of “Family Portrait” that featured really personal (and some really sad) pictures of her real-life family on the screens behind her as she sang.
Then, just to top it all off, she jumps into a harness for “So What” and swings in huge arcs across the entire arena, zipping right up to people in the far-far-far-off seats’ faces, and please believe that when she’s singing “I”m still a rock star” while she’s doing that, every damn person there knows she’s telling the truth.
(Keep up with Jayn by liking her Facebook page, and see her show pictures as they happen – and before some wisely get deleted in the morning.)
