On This Day in Pink History… 12th March 2007 Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) was released

Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) was released as a single from Pink’s fourth studio album, I’m Not Dead. It was written by Pink and co-written and produced by Butch Walker.

In the beginning of February 2007, before its official release as a single, the song was put on the B-list of BBC Radio 1. It debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number 60, and it rose to number 34, her lowest-peaking UK single at that time.

Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) is often performed at concerts, in which Pink will get the crowd to ‘dork dance’.

The music video consists of performances from Pink’s I’m Not Dead Tour. The video mostly includes shots of performances of Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely), but it also includes clips of performances of songs such as Stupid Girls, Fingers, The One That Got Away and U + Ur Hand.

On This Day in Pink History… 2nd March 2014, Pink attended the Oscars

On This Day in Pink History… 2nd March 2014, Pink attended the Oscars

The 86th Academy Awards was hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and took place on 2nd March 2014.

Pink performed Somewhere Over The Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz soundtrack.

Pink took the stage at the 86th annual Academy Awards on Sunday to perform “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from “The Wizard of Oz,” which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. In a sendup to Dorothy’s famous shoes, she donned a glittering red gown as footage from the movie played overhead.

Unlike Pink’s recent Grammy performance, the pop star was determined to keep grounded, shying away from the temptation to show off her aerial acrobatic abilities yet again.


On This Day in Pink History… 24th February 2009, The Funhouse Tour started in Nice, France

On This Day in Pink History… 24th February 2009, The Funhouse Tour started in Nice, France

The Funhouse Tour was the fourth concert tour by Pink. The tour supported her fifth studio album, Funhouse. The tour visited Europe, Australia and North America. According to Pollstar, the Funhouse Tour earned around $180 million with more than 3 million in attendance becoming one of the highest-grossing concert tours in the history of music . The Australian leg of the tour broke the record for the biggest tour in the history of the country. Over 660,000 people attended the Australian shows and grossed over $80 million.

The tour was announced in October 2008, nearly two weeks before the release of her fifth studio album. Pink stated, “I’m so excited to get back on the road. The ‘Funhouse’ tour ideas are running rampant in my head. Who knows what they’ll come out as… And I can’t wait to see.” The tour followed her internationally successful I’m Not Dead Tour, which became one of the biggest tours in 2006 and 2007.

The tour also marked the first time Pink has headlined a North American arena tour. To describe the event, Pink stated, “I’ve waited 30 years for this tour. I really wasn’t sure if anyone was going to show up.”

The concert starts with a video introduction which feature Pink watching TV. She then gets up and puts her lovers hand into a warm glass of water. She goes upstairs and gets changed into a white shirt and some jeans. She gets on a motorcycle and rides off, resembling her Funhouse music video. She finds a clown crying on the side of the road. She gets of her bike and gives him a flower hat. As the video ends, the clown appears on stage. He walks up to the end of the catwalk and finds a Box with a handle. As he turns the handle, a trapdoor opens, and Pink is lifted up into the air on a rope. The song Bad Influence then starts. She gets lowered down onto the main stage and starts to sing. She then sings Just Like a Pill, Who Knew, Ave Mary A and Don’t Let Me Get Me. She then goes offstage. At some shows, Pink might perform It’s All Your Fault after Just Like A Pill.

A red couch appears on the stage and Pink is seen walking over to it. She then starts to sing I Touch Myself. Whilst singing, hands come out of the couch and touch her. She then performs Please Don’t Leave Me. She briefly goes offstage whilst her dancers come onstage. She comes back on to perform U + Ur Hand. A love heart shaped bed appears onstage as she performs Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely) and So What. She then goes offstage again.

Her pianist then starts to play piano. She then comes back onstage to perform Family Portrait. She then plays I Don’t Believe You on the guitar. She would then perform Crystal Ball, Trouble and Babe I’m Gonna Leave You. She then goes offstage. At some shows, Pink might perform Dear Mr. President.

Two of her dancers then come and perform Ballet moves. This is then followed by Sober when she performs a trapeze. She quickly goes offstage and returns for Bohemian Rhapsody. Four mirrors are brought onstage as she performs Funhouse and Crazy. She says goodbye to the crowd and goes offstage. On the last leg, she would perform Stupid Girls after Funhouse

For the encore, She performed Get the Party Started and Glitter in the Air. For all shows except for the Premiere, there would be a video montage of all her videos with God Is a DJ playing after Get The Party Started. For Get The Party Started, she would perform some acrobatics. She would then go offstage. After a costume change, she would come back onstage to perform the final number, Glitter In The Air. She would be in the air performing some more acrobatics. Whilst that was happening, she would get lowered into the trapdoor that was used earlier in the show and be dipped in water. After she was lowered back onto the main stage, she bowed and walked offstage. The screen in the background showed THE END on it.

On This Day in Pink History… 19th February 2002, Don’t Let Me Get Me was released

On This Day in Pink History… 19th February 2002, Don’t Let Me Get Me was released

Don’t Let Me Get Me was released as the second single from Pink’s second album, Missundaztood.


The song earned positive reports from music critics, but most gave sensitively mixed reviews upon her self-hating lyrical content. Robert Christgau in his consumer guide for MSN wrote that “Despite Pink’s audacious claim that she’s not as pretty as ‘damn Britney Spears,’ celebrity anxiety takes a backseat to a credible personal pain rooted in credible family travails, a pain held at bay by expression.” Jim Farber of Entertainment Weekly wrote that “In Don’t Let Me Get Me, she turns self-loathing into a perverse kind of anthem.”

Jason Thompson of PopMatters wrote, “on the power rock of ‘Don’t Let Me Get Me,’ Pink herself tells it like it is and attempts to break free from the image making machine. ‘Tired of being compared / To damn Britney Spears / She’s so pretty / That just ain’t me.’ Well, that’s debatable in itself, but the fact that Pink takes it upon herself to call Spears out should be nothing short of revelatory. Spears certainly has nothing on Pink in the vocal department. Pink can actually sing. And damn well, mind you.”

Jim Alexander wrote a negative review, saying that the rest of Missundaztood is full of bad songs and that “‘Don’t Let Me Get Me’ and ‘Dear Diary’ see all pop joy expunged for acoustic seriousness, dreary unobtrusive beats and lyrics about relationship woes and record company badness.”

On This Day in Pink History… 13th February 2013, The Truth About Love Tour started in Phoenix, USA

On This Day in Pink History… 13th February 2013, The Truth About Love Tour started in Phoenix, USA

The Truth About Love Tour was the sixth concert tour by P!nk. Sponsored by CoverGirl, and showcasing music from her sixth studio album The Truth About Love, the tour played over 140 shows in Australia, Europe and North America. Shows in Melbourne, Australia were recorded and released on a concert DVD, The Truth About Love Tour: Live from Melbourne.

you definitely don’t walk away from a Pink show shrugging your shoulders and muttering ‘meh.’ It’s far more likely that fans practically skip out of the building, feeling extremely satisfied with the experience and determined to tell others to ‘go see Pink next time she’s in town’ […] Honesty is, as they say, the best policy. And, after watching the Truth About Love Tour, I can honestly say that few, if any, performers deliver better pop spectacles than Pink.

by the time Pink was soaring gracefully through the air on cables stretched across the arena to perform “So What,” the singer had demonstrated an epic workout of vocals, stagecraft and stunt-work without missing a note. The night’s best special effect was Pink herself.

Over 320,000 tickets for the Australian leg of the tour were sold within a few hours of release. The tour broke records for a solo artist tour in Australia with over 650,000 tickets sold. 200,000 tickets were sold for shows in Melbourne breaking a record P!nk had set herself with 2009’s Funhouse Tour. At the 2013 Billboard Touring Awards, Pink won the award for “Top Boxscore”.

The first North American leg of tour grossed $28.3 million from 26 shows, with an average gross per city of $1,134,385. The European leg grossed $30.7 million. The nine-week leg of Australia was expected to generate $100 million.

In Australia, initial grosses reported topped $31.6 million ($29.2 million) from two venues in Sydney and one in Brisbane, however that total did not include the four-night stint in the city of Adelaide, and a record-breaking eighteen shows in Melbourne.

The Truth About Love Tour was the third highest grossing tour of 2013 behind Bon Jovi, and Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour. P!nk was also the highest grossing female touring artist of 2013.

The Truth About Love Tour broke two records at the Rod Laver Arena, in Melbourne, Australia. P!nk is the artist who has performed the most shows at the venue, with a significant 18 sold out shows on The Truth About Love Tour. This record surpassed her previous 17-show record at the venue during her 2009 Funhouse Tour. She was also the first artist to sell more than 250,000 tickets at the venue. In August 2013, P!nk was rewarded a plaque backstage, a second pink pole, a star at the venue’s entrance and Door 18 was painted pink.

P!nk broke Kylie Minogue’s record of most concerts by a female performer at the Entertainment Centre having played twenty-six shows at the venue. Her four sold-out shows at the Allphones Arena in Sydney with more than 67,000 tickets sold, broke the record set by fellow popstar Britney Spears in 2009 with her The Circus Tour.

After playing to nearly 15,000 fans per night in Perth, P!nk now also holds the record for most performances by an artist at the Perth Arena, as well as the top four attended events at the venue.

Michael Coppel, President and CEO of Live Nation Australia, thanked P!nk for spending three months on tour in this country. “Everyone at LNA has been thrilled to be involved in Pink’s record breaking tour, continuing a decade-long association with an artist who continues to set new standards and who has now sold in excess of 1.5 million tickets in Australia.”

The pop star broke her own mark at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena with the 18th sold out performance, having set a house record in 2009 with seventeen shows on her Funhouse tour. The combined gross of $29.2 million (US$) in Melbourne was the largest gross for any headliner at a single venue in 2013.

P!nk also sold out the KFC Yum!, in the process becoming the highest-grossing female artist to play the arena to date.

To transport and set up the tour, there was a chartered 747 jumbo jet, nineteen semi-trailers, and eighty crew members to set up 400 tons of equipment. She also opened her first pop-up store which featured things that are not normally available at her concerts. Merchandise included autographed items, backstage passes, T-shirts, key rings, show tickets, etc.
