What? This is amazing. God knows how I missed it before.

It was so priceless. Adam and his friends and I were just standing there like "Wait...what?" and cracking up the whole time.

Dallas wtf are you doing?! stahp!

but seriously he's way too good to be opening for this awful pop garbage

I think Hives/Pink is a weirder combination tbh, but this could be good exposure for Dallas.

Why? You already paid for the show, stay, she might be better than you expect. Even if she's terrible, it's an interesting story at the very least.

Ehhh, maybe.

Definitely going to the Charlotte date. I have yet to see city and colour

You will be blown away; it seems the bigger the venue, the bigger his voice sounds. No trouble at all getting his voice to the back of an arena.

I only have 2 concerns.

1. Small set
2. Expensive tickets

but nonetheless I have to see this man live.

Didn't Dallas open for P!nk a couple years ago for the European leg of her tour or something?

Was going to say the SAME thing.. I'm pretty sure this has happened before with Dallas and Pink... Not surprised

I'm a huge Dallas Green fan, one of my most favorable and inspirational artists I've ever listened to. I'm amazed I never found this out until now. I just worry that Dallas' music won't be enjoyed by the the people going to see Pink, seeing as how they play very different styles of music. But with that being said, this is the biggest tour of his life. At least US wise.

Dallas just wants the prestige of playing huge venues like MSG. hell id do any tour for that chance.

This brings up an interesting discussion: at what point does playing to sheer numbers outweigh playing to your target demographic?

C&C is music that most will find enjoyable - while people looking to "Get The Party Started" may not be at the show to hear mellow tunes, C&C is very accessible to the masses. The prestige of the venues, size of the audience, and the pay day will all likely work in the band's favor.

Eh... Good for the exposure at least? Odd pairings to say the least.

p!nk/fun. tour will happen in the future and it will be great.

i would go to this if given the chance. p!nk's new album isn't bad and everything city & colour does is incredible.

This could be cool
