P!nk at the O2

A brief video of the spectacular finale of the P!nk concert the other night. Full photo set is here. It was one of the best pop concerts I’ve yet been to. It’s funny that P!nk once sang that she was ‘tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears’. a complaint which at the time hinged on Britney’s position at the top of the pop pile. Now she is almost the anti-Britney – she is someone who takes pop music and its fans seriously. She puts in the effort, keeping miming to a bare minimum while still engaging in awe-inspiring acrobatics. Most importantly, the music is kept firmly at the centre of it all. She is present and engaged where Britney is blank and removed.
