Sis­ters raise a glass thanks to P!nk show

Te Awamutu Courier - - News - NA¯ BETHANY ROLSTON

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.
