I can't believe I went to Pink and Justin Timberlake...after drinking a .8 gallon beer

The show was amazing. Seriously. Pink was a definite crowd-pleaser and Justin worked hard for his money. He either strummed guitar or played organ or piano for about half the songs. For the other half he was non-stop dancing and working the crowd. I got tired just watching him.

His band was rocking: two guitar players, two drummers, two keyboard players, a shitload of hot dancers and singers. The guitars and drums gave many of the songs a harder edge. Like Sexy Back and Cry Me A River, they each had kind of crunchy guitar parts to make them kind of rock. I didn't even recognize a couple of songs at first.

Justin's set was over two hours (I think about 2:20-2:25) including about a 15 or 20 minute intermission while DJ/singer/producer-extraordinaire Timbaland did some stuff. The show didn't end until around 11:30 which is usually curfew-breaking and into O.T. for union stage crews around here.

All for only an $85 highest ticket price.

I am glad that I didn't see him last month in Boston because I would have been compelled to go see this show in Manchester, NH as well. It was that good.

I can't remember the last time I was hit on by so many girls. Not just the wise-asses saying things like "why are you at a concert like this? I bet you can't even name two of his songs" and the underaged "can you buy beer for me?" girls. I mean like real girls with no agenda. I was actually desirable for some reason. :D

Before the show Matty and I went to a tavern in Manchester and had this beer tower that is over 101 ounces!

Sounds pretty cool. Like he really is bringing sexy back. And Timberland is ok in my book. He takes artists I hate and produces songs for them that I kinda like. Still dont like the artists though, as evidenced by anything they do that doesnt have Timberland's magic pixie dust on it.

But I know your favorite part was the huge beer!
