Pink coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa
It's a good thing the Tampa Bay Times Forum has hosted Cirque du Soleil shows in the past. They might need that expertise next year, considering all the high-flying acrobatics Pink has crammed into her stage show of late.
Come February, the singer will return to Tampa for her first local headlining show since 2006 at Jannus Landing (although she did open for Justin Timberlake at the Forum in 2007). According to her website, Pink's Truth About Love Tour will stop in Tampa on Feb. 27. Ticketmaster lists tickets for $36.75-$96.75, and says they'll go onsale Oct. 6. Click here for details.
Pink is the third major pop starlet to announce a gig at the Forum in early 2013, along with Lady Gaga (March 13) and Rihanna (April 19). But considering her ever-growing catalog of hits (Get the Party Started, Who Knew, F---in' Perfect, Blow Me (One Last Kiss)) -- not to mention all those high-wire stage performances -- and this might be the most intriguing of them all.
