On your radar: Pink, Hilary Hahn and the New York Yankees

RECOMMENDED READING


Pink: On her Truth About Love Tour, the singer returns to Tampa for her first local headlining show since 2006 at Jannus Landing. Now she's bringing her ever-growing catalog of hits including Get the Party Started, Who Knew and Blow Me (One Last Kiss) — not to mention all those high-wire stage performances and Swedish rockers. The Hives open the show at 7:30 p.m. at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. $36.75-$96.75. (813) 301-2500.

Hilary Hahn: Violinist Hilary Hahn's probing interpretations, technical brilliance and commitment to new music has helped her bring her love of classical music to a diverse audience.

New York Yankees Spring Training: Looking to get a head start on the season? Skip out of the office a bit early to see the Yanks face off against the Baltimore Orioles. The game starts at 1:05 p.m. at George M. Steinbrenner Field, One Steinbrenner Drive, Tampa. $17-$33. (813) 875-7753.

The Piano Lesson: If you haven't seen this August Wilson play yet, this is your last week to catch it. After arriving in Pittsburgh from the South, Boy Willie decides to sell an old piano that has been in his family for generations for some quick cash. It's at 8 p.m. at American Stage Theatre Company, 163 Third St. N, St. Petersburg. $39; $20 student advance, $10 student rush. (727) 823-7529.
