She's Just Here for My Entertainment
So AM really likes the singer Pink. I like her music too, but AM is a big, big fan. So when she found out, back in March, that Pink was playing the Garden in December, she asked if I'd like to join her. I said sure, because it'd be fun and I know the importance of supporting obsessions (oh, I owe you guys a little dudes post). Last night was the concert. This was actually a number of firsts for me. I'd never been to Boston Garden's before and I'm pretty sure I've never been to a stadium concert before.
First thing I discover is that I have child-bearing hips. Either that or those are child-bearing chairs. They literally sold me the whole seat but I could only fit on the edge.
Second thing I realize is that this isn't a concert, this is Cirque de Rose. Pink spent more time off the stage than she did on it thanks to silks and wire-work. Along with her acrobatic dancers, it was a pretty high-flying show. Also, Pink's abs have abs.
So it was a pretty kick-ass show. I'm still not a huge fan of concerts (and I was just about ready to pick up the idiots behind me and chuck them off the balcony), but it was a good show. AM sang herself hoarse and I gifted her with an overpriced concert t-shirt so it was a good time all around.
p.s. Oh, my entire hometown population fits in about a quarter of the upper balcony section of the garden...which was a little sobering.
