A two time Grammy winning singer songwriter who has sold over 25 million albums worldwide, P!nk is one of the biggest artists on the music scene at the moment.
Nicole Mcintyre, the girl behind the Australian P!nk Show, tells us more …
So tell us … who is the lady ‘wearing the Pink mask’, so to speak? What’s your background?
I grew up in rural NSW and recently moved to Sydney. It was in primary school that I first discovered an interest in music.
When did you first become interested and involved in performing?
My first performance was a solo Christmas carol in Year 6! At high school I continued to perform in school, and I joined my first band when I was 15. I experimented with a range of music styles, but found that my Pop/Rock music was the right fit for me. I have been performing in bands/duo acts ever since.
So where did the idea to do a Pink tribute show come from, and when did it come to fruition?
Our Bassist came up with the idea about 5 years ago, and that’s when the band formed. A few phone calls and emails later, we had all 5 band members, and The Australian Pink Show was formed.
We studied Pink’s live performances and got straight into the studio and rehearsed for 3 months, before hitting the scene. We are fortunate to have been busy with the show every month since we began.
Pink herself is a huge success. Is it intimidating for you to be imitating (for lack of a better word) someone who is STILL so big on the current music scene?
I am a huge Pink fan! She is amazing vocally, and I love the way she speaks her mind without worrying what anyone else will think. The fact that she has maintained her position as a leading Pop artist for more than a decade is incredible given the fickle nature of the music industry – it shows how powerful and appealing her music is. I admire her so much, and it can be intimidating trying to emulate her sound. I hope I am doing it justice!
What can fans expect to get from/see at the show?
The Australian Pink Show delivers a high energy tribute, reproducing not only the sounds of Pink, but the onstage antics, images and costumes. Performing all the worldwide hits such as, Get the Party Started, Most Girls, Just Like a Pill, Stupid Girlz, Who Knew, You and Ur Hand, Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely), Dear Mr President, So What and so much more.
You’re performing in Coffs Harbour in November. What are you looking forward to about visiting our area?
We are Sydney based; however, the show has taken us all over the state from Thredbo to Coffs Harbour. I’ve been to Coffs Harbour a few times now, and it is a beautiful place. I love the beach, so I’ll be spending some time there after the gig!
My best friend from high school also happens to live in Coffs, so I’m looking forward to catching up with her! This show is one of the best respected tribute acts on display in Australia. So come along and have a ball!
