Oh my gee, oh my gee. Pink is so amazing. Seriously, best concert I’ve ever been to.
I’ve known about this Truth About Love Tour since it was first announced about a year ago. I tried to get floor tickets the morning they went on sale, but I don’t think they were selling those at the time, so I skipped it. Instead, I asked for the tickets for Christmas!
I didn’t get them. Which is okay, I got lots of other great things. But I still had this nagging desire to see her because when I was in 6th grade I saw her for the Missundaztood Tour, and she blew my socks off then too. So, this morning I woke up and I’m all like “damn, I’m going!” I went onto Stubhub and found a general admission pit ticket for less than an arm and a leg (but not by much).
After happy hour, I went and stood in line beginning at like, 6:15p. Doors opened at 6:30 but the show didn’t start until 8p. When I went to Taylor Swift the other month, there was no food or drink allowed in the pit so I thought this would be the same and was prepared to just sit there and read my Kindle for an hour or two. But then I got in and everyone was super friendly and I met some great people. These great people, beyond providing stimulating conversation (one was a cop!) also saved my spot for me when I needed to get a bottle of water.
My intention was to get the bottle of water and mix myself a vodka-water with the flask in my purse. But, then I realized that if I were singing and dancing a lot I may become dehydrated and want water. So, I bought a bottle of water and then a vodka-water cocktail. This provided the best of both worlds because then not only was I able to continuously refill that bottle with flask+water, but it kept my thirsty-water safe. You guys, I went to college.
Anyway, seriously, best concert ever. And I think it was made even better by the fact that I went alone. I love Joe to pieces and have enjoyed every concert I’ve been to with him, but we’ve also been together for 2.5 years and I’ve forgotten how much I fucking love my independence. And then the whole show was about Love and how you have to love yourself before you can love others and I was just like, oh em gee: that is so true. Therefore, I’m pretty sure I’m going to spend a few months in Nepal, but more on that later.
Do you think I was close enough?
