Diva overload: Pink to hit Xcel

CHRIS RIEMENSCHNEIDER | Updated 10/8/2012

Currently riding the success of "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)," she will arrive between Lady Gaga and Rihanna at the St. Paul arena.

If the Wild aren’t going to use the place, then let at least Xcel Energy Center will see a little competition between modern pop divas early next year. The St. Paul arena just announced ticket info on Pink’s March 19 show, which is just a week before Rihanna’s March 24 date and a month after Lady Gaga’s Feb. 6 return. Throw in some possible Taylor Swift dates next year, and things could get even more interesting at the X.

Pink’s tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. for $39.50-$99.50 through Ticketmaster. The brassy starlet also known as Alecia Moore will be touring behind her sixth album, “The Truth About Love,” which has spawned the current smash hit “Blow Me (One Last Kiss).” She worked on the album with a variety of pop hitmakers, including the Twin Cities’ own Dan Wilson. Her tour openers have not yet been announced.
