Two Grammy-winning hitmakers are among the acts coming to Minnesota concert stages in the next week.
Pink is set to bring her stage show -- high-flying acrobatics included -- to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Tuesday. Her concert tour is the first she's done in North America for four years -- this time in support of her new album, "The Truth About Love."
The Dallas News raved about Pink's tour stop in Dallas Feb. 22, calling her an "awesome performer" and saying the concert "mixed spectacle with intimacy, naughtiness with kiss-off humor and sophisticated acrobatics with seductive dancing."
Pink got the same amount of love three days later from the Orlando Sentinel, which called her show "visually dazzling," noting, that the performer "takes a back-seat to no one when it comes to mixing song and spectacle."

Digital Journal reviewed the country singer's Feb. 17 in Long Island, N.Y., saying it was "filled with high energy and excitement" and that Young "proved that he is one of country's most underrated talents and finest male vocalists."
Another country star, Easton Corbin, is set to play Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia Saturday.
MassLive said in its review of the singer's Hartford, Conn., show last week that the singer -- who suffered a bout of laryngitis and the flu earlier this month -- was "fully recovered and ready to rock, rap, and inject a little reggae into concert halls across the globe."
The site noted a slight rasp in Rihanna's voice but it hardly impeded the show, and that the singer "seemed genuinely thrilled to be on stage."
