  Key Arena, Seattle



Fresh from the 2009 Video Music Award's (see her fabulous finale on trapeze), P!NK opened up her US Funhouse Tour in Seattle suffering from a separated shoulder during practice.

Pink Tweeted:
"but the show will go on. it did last night. and i'd say it went pretty well:) thanks seattle. loudest crowd we have had this tour."

Are you used to watching concerts like this?

 Not with ArTrips Concerts!   Up-in-front, in your face performances is what it's all about!

Nominated for Best Female Video along with the interrupted winner Taylor Swift, P!NK said she wished she had won because if Kanye would of pulled that sh*t on her she would of took out a pair of brass knuckles and punched him!! :))  I think her MTV 2008 VMA performance was the best!!

I've followed Alecia since her second album, "M!ssundaztood".  Her "Get the Party Started" and "Just like a Pill" started her distinctive rock sound. Originally booked at the WAMU Theater, the demand was so high they moved it to the larger venue Seattle's Key Arena. I of course got tickets right away at the WAMU Theater which admitted us to floor seats at the Key!!!

I lined up an hour before the doors opened and as soon as they did, I knew exactly the layout and where to go!!  Front Center Stage Baby!!! I heard people behind us say they were in line early in the morning...

And that's where we stood for the next 5 hours.....

No Camera --- Yeah right!  ;))

The Ting Tings
opened up the evening.  They're an English rock duo of Jules De Martino (drums, lead guitar, vocals, piano) and Katie White (vocals, guitar, bass drums and bass guitar).  These two produced amazing high energy...   Warm up they did... and so were we!   They asked just one thing and that was to dance, I was soaked!  From the great beats of Great DJ and Shut Up and Let Me Go, The Ting Tings brought down the house with their hits Be the one, We Walk and of course That's Not My Name. Their performance was energetic and Katie is part of this great new wave of British rock 'n roll women! Fun warm up!

It was amazing how much sound and rhythm the two could produce!

More Cowbell!

And then FUNHOUSE started!!
      The Funhouse clowns were inflated and the party stepped up a notch!!!
