Sisters raise a glass thanks to P!nk show
Two Te Awamutu sisters are buzzing after hitting it off with P!nk at an Auckland bar, and then being given tickets — by the pop sensation herself — to see her perform a second time.
They say the incredible act of kindness was a blessing after having lost their mum and brother to depression.
Chick Bailey and Melissa Parsons thought they’d had the best night of their lives seeing the star’s Beautiful Trauma concert with their husbands Mike Bailey and Ben Parson last Wednesday night.
They hardly believed their luck when they spied the international star at Huami Bar the next afternoon.
“We were walking past SkyCity Hotel on the Thursday afternoon and my brother-in-law said ‘that looks like P!nk’s guitarist in the bar across the road’,” Chick said.
“Me and my sister linked arms and stormed into the pub. We walked into the tiny bar and were so star-struck. There P!nk was, sitting at the bar with her husband having a date on her day off.”
“The waitress came and asked what we’d like to drink but we couldn’t concentrate.
“We were sitting right beside her for ages and were so star-struck.
“P!nk then got up and went to the toilet. We knew if we didn’t ask for a photo we’d regret it.
“When she came back I just lifted up my phone and she just walked over to us and said ‘I don’t want a photo’.”
But the sisters didn’t mind and went on to tell P!nk how much they adored her.
“We would see your show every night if we could,” Melissa told P!nk.
P!nk then offered the sisters four free tickets to see her perform again.
“She said, ‘What night do you want to go and how many tickets do you want?’”
P!nk took Chick’s name and email address.
“When she found out my last name was Bailey she told me: “I’ve got a dog called Bailey and he’s just gone to heaven. We were meant to meet you today.”
“We had about three hugs with her — she was just amazing.”
The sisters describe P!nk as down to earth.
