P!nk: The Truth About Love Tour: Houston Review

Last Thursday, my boyfriend and I went on an impromptu date to see Pink perform at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. I had a previous commitment so I originally was not planning to go to this show, at the last minute that fell through...

Anyway, I ended up getting great seats (5th row on the side) and we went to the show. The only other time I saw Pink was in 2009 live at the MTV Video Music Awards and she was great, so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.

She definitely works hard and you can just tell she actually really enjoys what she does. I definitely think she does not get enough recognition. Her voice was on point and she was beaming with excitement throughout the entire show. She mentioned her family several times and even pointed out her husband (Carey Hart) holding her baby girl (Willow) in the audience. Later, halfway through the show, she asked where her husband was (the next song was about him) and then she laughed and said "oh it's bath time right now."

Seeing her dedication to her career and being so involved with her family - basically merging these two worlds seamlessly together, was definitely impressive. I also can't leave out her impressive physique! Personally, I wouldn't want her exact body, but it is still amazing to see how in shape and how strong she is (and had a child not that long ago).

Overall the performance was excellent, she commanded the stage and every person in that crowds attention. I have been to many many concerts in my day and at least 25% of the crowd starts rushing out of the venue right before the encore. Well not at this show! The audience eagerly waited to see what she would do next and not a soul moved out of their seat.

The only thing I did not like was the raunchy theme during some of the show...there was some crazy guy popping up here and there and he just grossed me out. I think he was supposed to be a cross between a burlesque dancer/ lion tamer. Her dancers also did several dances as if they were having s*x too. Just seemed tasteless to me. I felt like the show was entertaining enough without all of that, but hey, that is my opinion!

One of my favorite parts of the show was a video they played at the very end. It was outtakes from her tour rehearsals. Many of the clips featured her daughter and it was seriously the cutest thing.It was sweet to see them all happy together as a family. Pink and Carey both post photos of Willow on Instagram and Twitter, but I notice they are super careful...usually it's a photo of her walking away or profile shot (never of her face). They aren't ones to want their child's photo blasted everywhere. To be honest I really didn't know what she looked like until I saw this video. Adorable...and how lucky to have such cool parents.

Below are the dates for her upcoming shows, definitely check it out if you like Pink, I highly recommend!
