I am bracing myself for the barrage of negative snide comments in response to this post but I don’t care – if someone else can post about Def Leppard then I’m damn well going to have a rant about P!nk.
P!nk had 2 sold out shows at the AIS arena here in Canberra last year as part of her ‘I’m not Dead’ tour in the Australian leg. I went to one of these shows and it was ROCKIN’! So what!? (cos I’m a rockstar etc)
In mid 2009 she’s out to Australia again for the Funhouse tour. And despite my best efforts (ie on the Ticketmaster site on the dot that tickets were released to the general public), I missed out on the reasonable dates for a Canberran to go to a Sydney show (ie Friday or Saturday night).
I have been reassuring myself that OF COURSE a Canberra show will be announced given 1. the previous tour 2 sold out shows here, and 2. hell if there is already a Funhouse gig in Newcastle then surely the Nation’s Capital gets a look-in?! But no – today further shows were announced for Melbourne (concerts 8 and 9!), Adelaide & Perth (concert #3 for both!!) and Brisbane. But still no Canberra show!
WHAT IS GOING ON!?
I encourage all Canberra P!nk fans to register their outrage and desire for a concert here – join the facebook group, register your interest with Ticketmaster, and rant on the P!nk website!
