First tour: Funhouse Melbourne tour, 2009. I was aged 23
I wasn't a religious P!nk fan back then. I was super impressed by IND tour (my jaw DROPPED when I saw GTPS aerial, and then Fingers), and was still a Britney fan. But I was slowly getting into P!nk, and I saw a rehearsal video of her doing trapeze (not sure what it was for then). Then I saw a bootleg video of her doing Sober, and I remember being stunned like time had frozen. And Glitter in the Air was just breathtaking.
So I decided to go to Australia to see her. This was also my first time on an airplane. Went to Rod Laver Arena, queued in the cold, elbowed and kicked old grannies and little girls who were in my way while running to the front... and managed to get to the front spot.
Highway to Hell came on... I remember losing my MIND when Sebastian was onstage, and there was this quick little step he does to the front of the stage, before the contraption to wheel P!nk out. I SCREAMED.
This was me, you can hear how my voice went three octaves higher!
And then the smoke billowed, and I SAW HER FACE FIRST and I was like WHOOOAAAAHHHHH. It was amazing and out of body, as if I had been touched by an angel. Whole concert was fire, I was in awe. I was rocking out with a young girl to Who Knew (back in the days, she did Who Knew rock version... good times, good times...)
She didn't do GTPS aerial (or GITA) at this concert. But during GTPS she came off stage to grab our hands. She at first walked past me but she grabbed my right thumb, and said Thanks to me. And immediately I bent to my side and I was like "OMG".
Which was the precursor to this amazing P!nk memory of mine, during TTAL tour where she stopped her show and called me "awesome".
