Pink coming to Seattle this fall

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Global pop superstar Pink (or P!nk, if you insist) has added Seattle to her 2013 live concert itinerary. 'The Truth About Love Tour' will touch down Sunday, October 20, at Key Arena, as part of a new batch of dates added to her already lengthy road outing. Presented by Covergirl, the tour has thus far sold out in every city she's played. The singer, whose real name is Alecia Moore, has seven albums of material to pluck from, including the worldwide hits 'Get the Party Started,' 'Just Like a Pill,' 'Stupid Girls,' 'U + Ur Hand,' 'So What,' 'Raise Your Glass,' and 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss).' Tickets go on sale March 30 (10 a.m.) at LiveNation.com and all Ticketmaster outlets. American Express cardholders can purchase advance tickets beginning March 25.

WE'RE SHOCKED ... SHOCKED
Buh-bye Michelle Shocked, and don't let the door hit you on the way out. The Grammy-nominated folksinger-songwriter is facing major backlash from her anti-Gay remarks made at Yoshi's nightclub in the Bay Area last weekend. Most of the audience left en masse when Shocked spat out, 'I live in fear that the world will be destroyed if Gays are allowed to marry.' She then reportedly told the crowd that 'God hates faggots' and to post it on Twitter. Nearly all of the concert venues that had booked the artist in the coming weeks, including Meander's Kitchen in West Seattle, have since canceled her appearance. The Texas-born musician converted to Christianity in the mid-1990s and declared herself a homophobe as recently as 2011. Aside from the fact that her onstage rant was hurtful to the LGBT community, her behavior was also very unprofessional - an artist is hired to entertain a live audience, not to use it as an opportunity to voice controversial opinions.

THE PERFECT WEDDING GIFT
Lesbian comic Wanda Sykes has scheduled two upcoming performances at Tulalip Resort Casino. The comedienne, who has starred on the TV series Curb Your Enthusiasm and The New Adventures of Old Christine, will appear May 24 and 25 at the casino's Orca Ballroom. Sykes, who married her wife Alex in 2006, has also added several voice-over film credits to her resume, including Rio, Over the Hedge, and Ice Age: Continental Drift. She'll next be seen in the movie Skum Rocks! with Kevin Bacon, Matthew Broderick, and Julianne Hough. Tickets for the Tulalip shows, priced at $50, are on sale at www.ticketmaster.com. Package deals, which include overnight accommodations, seats in rows 5 or 6 (center section) and breakfast buffet, start at $329 (they are sold out for May 25, but some remain for May 24). Both performances are for ages 21+ and begin at 8:30 p.m. Tulalip Resort Casino is 35 minutes from downtown Seattle. There is no public transportation to the casino, but there is a shuttle running to/from SeaTac Airport for those with room reservations. For more information, visit www.tulalipcasino.com.

NEXT SUMMER ON MARS?
The announcement of more summer concerts continues with Jewel on May 30 (Moore Theatre), 'Last Summer on Earth' with Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five, and Guster on June 29 (White River Amphitheatre), the Dave Matthews Band on August 30-September 1 (The Gorge Amphitheatre), Cee Lo Green on September 12 (Puyallup Fair), and Carrie Underwood on September 13 (also doing the Puyallup).

YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE
These shows are now sold out: Josh Ritter on March 23 (The Neptune), George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic on March 23 (The Showbox Market), Phoenix on March 29 (Paramount Theatre), Fitz & the Tantrums on April 8 (Columbia City Theater), and A Day to Remember with Of Mice & Men and Issues on April 12 (The Showbox SoDo). Also, reservations are filling quickly for Joan Osborne's Saturday performance at Jazz Alley. She appears April 18-21 with the Holmes Brothers at the downtown supper club, and will interview with SGN on April 5.

SEE AND BE SCENE
Finally, the EMP Pop Conference will take place April 20 at, guess where, EMP (Experience Music Project). The event, coinciding with similar conferences that weekend in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Cleveland, brings together academics, critics, performers, and the general public for collective discussions on today's music scene. Registration is free! Visit www.empmuseum.org for details.
