Pink All About The Music On Summer Tour

"It's going to be awesome, because it's not a huge production," she tells Billboard.com. "It's much smaller, more intimate venues. When I go to Europe I do the big production deal and it's fun; I love theatrics and I love to dance and climb on things. But I do, first and foremost, only care about singing and the music and how good it sounds."
Pink's tour is promoting her fourth album, "I'm Not Dead," which debuted in April at No. 6 in The Billboard 200. A European leg begins Sept. 27 in Zurich; Pink says she will be on the road until September 2007.
In addition to her own material, the artist will work a few covers into her shows, but she promises they'll be different than in previous years. "We've done (Four Non Blondes') 'What's Up' and Janis [Joplin] covers for about five years now," she says, "so I think we're retiring those. We're going to start doing some other ones -- I'm thinking possibly Violent Femmes and," she adds with a laugh, "possibly a little Britney."
While she's on the road, Pink will also be anticipating the release of "Catacombs," a horror film from the producers of "Saw" and "The Hostel" that she shot during the spring in Romania. She co-stars with Shannyn Sossamon as sisters caught in the underground catacombs of Paris.
"It's pretty intense," Pink notes. "It's not only a sort of slasher-type, scary movie -- it's also psychological and shows how mean and cruel siblings can be to one another. I liked that part of it." No release date has been set for the film.
