A Review of Pink’s November 6th Concert at The Palace of Auburn Hills

By Tim Meeks

The artist known as Pink rolled into the Palace of Auburn Hills with her convoy of red semi-trucks in tow. The Truth About Love Tour is dynamic and very entertaining. Opening with the favorite “Raise Your Glass,” Pink was held aloft, ala Cirque du Soleil-style, by three male performers and two large bungee cords while she did a variety of aerial tricks. Wednesday’s performance included a selection of old hits like “Just Like a Pill,” “U+Ur Hand,” and “Who Knew,” as well as new releases such as “Try,” “Walk of Shame,” and “Just Give Me A Reason.”

Most of the sellout crowd remained on its feet throughout the entirety of the show. The video displays and light show, that included fireworks, was a thing of beauty and perfectly choreographed to the dancing and music. A cover of Chris Issak’s “Wicked Game” found its place amidst the pageantry with a soft yet erotic display, as three of the male performers danced and cajoled with Pink throughout the song. It would be easy to think that there has to be some lip syncing going on with the amount of dancing and acrobatics, but I have to say if that is true, she is best damn actress I have seen.

A medley of “Most Girls,” “There You Go,” and “You Make Me Sick” were followed by “Slut Like You” and “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”, which finished the show. The tour continues with stops in Des Moines, IA, St. Louis, MO, and Dallas, TX, just to mention a few.
