Okay, this'll be the last post about P!nk for some time, probably.

So last night was the P!nk concert at Dubai Media City, right outside our apartment. Well, we couldn't see the show but we could definitely hear it.

First off, it only started twenty minutes after ten, where it was supposed to start at ten. I bet that they'd be forty-five minutes late, Liz thought they'd be forty-six. That's the old The Price is Right strategy, bid just one higher than the other guy. Saldy we both went over. I think they call that a "double overbid" on the show.

Anyway, she started with some song I don't know, which I assume is her newest hit. After her second song (which I think was "Like a Pill") she had a little banter with the crowd, something along the lines of, "I was cute just a little bit ago" in reference to the no doubt sweaty grossness she probably was after running around on stage for just seven or eight minutes. Can I tell you how ridiculous the heat and humidity were yesterday? It was obscene. That's the only way to describe it.

Oh, speaking of obscene, for the record it sounded to us like she hit every swear-word and blasphemous phrase in all of her songs. Wonder how the religious authorities will feel about that?

The oddest part of the show were the cover songs she performed near the end. Janis Joplin's "Piece of My Heart" was first, and then 4 Non Blondes' "Whats Going On?".

Well I guess the second isn't too weird, as Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes wrote and produced "Get the Party Started", which was obviously the encore.

All-in-all it was a good show, especially since we didn't have to pay, we had a mostly air conditioned room to listen from (we had the sliding door to the balcony opened a crack) and we didn't have to fight traffic going home, as we already were home.

Wonder when the next show will be?

WOW!!!!!!!! You are a bigger Pop fan than even I. Good luck as it is a life of torment and ridicule. And for the record, I only own 2 Christina Aguilera albums.
